There’s a chill in the autumn air and I am welcoming soup season with big open arms! I was digging into my recipe archives to pull out my favorite soup recipes to start making on the weekends, and thought I’d share a round up of 9 popular soups that I come back to year after year (plus my fool-proof recipe for homemade chicken stock!). From hearty potato leek to veggie-packed sweet squash soups to spicy sausage and tortellini, there’s a soup for everyone — scroll down to see my favorites!Cheddar Thyme Potato Leek Soup. I have been dreaming about making this soup after feeling the first chill of fall in the air. It’s indulgent, hearty, rich, creamy, and so satisfying — full of potatoes and cheddar, leeks and fresh thyme. It’s a soup that feels like a meal on it’s own, but tastes amazing with warm, soft pretzels for dipping too. One of favorite fall soup recipes!Sausage and Tortellini Soup. This soup recipe was adapted and made it into my cookbook! In my humble opinion, you really can’t go wrong with anything that involves tortellini. I like to use hot sausage in the dish to give it a little kick, but sweet sausage works too if you’re not a fan of spice.My favorite way to serve is is alongside a tray of warm, fresh popovers and herb butter.Easy Roasted Butternut Squash and Apple Soup. I love a butternut squash soup, and this homemade version gets tons of extra flavor by adding in sweet carrots and apples, and herby rosemary notes. It’s hearty yet sweet, and is a great way to get some hidden veggies on the table!
Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Soup. This soup is so simple to make — just 6 ingredients — and is surprisingly dairy free! The roasted garlic and cauliflower give it a nutty, rich flavor and a natural creaminess. I top mine with bacon crumbles, but you could easily leave those off for a vegetarian take on the dish too!
Creamy Autumn Squash Soup. This recipe is an oldie but a goodie! It’s a riff on my butternut squash soup, but has a spiced flavor that comes from mixing in cumin and cinnamon. Any roasted squash would work in here too, if you have delicata or acorn squash on hand! See more soup ideas below:
