The leaves are changing, the weather is (slowly) getting cooler, and pumpkin spice everything is popping up all around us. There are a million reasons to celebrate the arrival of Fall, but our most favorite (besides football) is that it’s time for homemade vegetable soup! All the best ingredients are in season, and we are more than ready to get into the kitchen! So, here it is, our list of the seven best fall vegetable soup recipes we could find.
7 Fall Vegetable Soup Recipes to Savor
Mushroom & Barley Soup – This savory soup recipe combines high quality beef stock with fall soup favorites such as mushroom, carrots, onion and celery. Add flavor rich, stick-to-your-bones barley to the mix and it becomes a real crowd pleaser. Best of all, it’s finished in just 30 minutes from start to finish, and keeps well as leftovers or a even make-ahead meal.
Roasted Broccoli & Cheddar Soup – This creamy, cheesy, little piece of Heaven sets itself apart from the rest because of one crucial flavor-boosting step – roasting the broccoli. Other key highlights are leeks, yukon gold potatoes, and extra-sharp white cheddar cheese. Serve it with chunks of fresh baked bread and your family will do anything you say for the rest of the night, maybe even the week depending on how long the leftovers last!
Roasted Butternut Squash Soup – This veggie soup recipe is like a fall explosion in your mouth, and we love it! The ingredients are kept fairly simply to really let the butternut flavor come through, but it does include all the fall basics such as nutmeg and maple syrup, combined with spicy shallot and garlic.
Roasted Fall Vegetable Soup – This is the vegetable soup recipe to end all vegetable soup recipes. We love that it packs all of our favorite fall veggies into one chunky, flavorful pot. If you’re looking for a creamier style soup, try this recipe from Martha Stewart.
Ham & Split-Pea Soup – Martha Stewart does us another solid with this unbelievable ham split-pea recipe. Plus, now you have something to do with all that leftover holiday ham! Lemon and thyme give it that extra zing that will have you craving more, till it’s gone!
Chicken Coconut Curry Soup – Pulled rotisserie chicken and lacinato kale pair up to make this creamy coconut curry soup a hearty meal time favorite. This recipe calls for rice noodles as well, but we’re more in favor of bulking of the veggie content and skipping the noodles. Regardless of how you choose to make it, the taste is unbelievable and will definitely have you coming back for more.
Beef & Vegetable Soup – The beauty of a good fall vegetable soup is that you can change out the veggies for what you have on hand. This recipe celebrates old-fashioned flavor twists such as sweet corn paired with a dash of hot pepper sauce, while keeping traditional with good ole peas-n-carrots.
