The Best Soup Recipes for Fall

A round-up of seasonal soup recipes for fall comfort food.

A generous pot of Borscht is simmering on stove as I write this. It’s full of the first beets and cabbage of the season, as well as a handful of dill from my herb garden.

Not only is today the first day of fall, but Hurricane Teddy is raining down all around us here in Nova Scotia. We’ve done all of our storm prep (gas! groceries! gin!) and now there’s nothing else to do but hunker down and ride it out.

I’ll keep this post short and sweet. Here’s all the inspiration you need to start a pot of soup for dinner tonight.

How to Make Soup from Scratch

Before we get to the recipes…do you know how to make soup from scratch? Unusual circumstances like hurricanes and pandemics can leave us scrambling to get a meal on the table using what we have in the fridge and pantry.

In one of my post popular posts How to Make Soup from Scratch, you can learn to make any soup using the ingredients you have on hand, with the flavours you prefer, without any recipe. It’s such a good skill to have!

    Where did you get your containers?

  2. The beef stroganoff soup, and the slow cooker coconut curry sweet potato are my favourites! I haven’t made these all though 🙂

  3. I can feel the coziness from your photos, and the soup looks yummy. I love it, thanks for sharing!

  4. It’s amazing! Lovely your post. =)

  5. thank you for all of these soup recipes, have been craving soup recently even during high summer, and late summer minestrone looks like a great place to start, thank you!

  6. Soup on a cold, snowy day (which it is here in YYC): the best.
    I love reading your recipes… new flavour ideas! Very intrigued by Jan Scott’s creamy stroganoff soup.
    Tonight we’re having soup. After reading all these wonderful recipes, I still usually just wing it. Thawed some lovely ground beef (bought from a farmer we know: we split a beef with him every fall). Start with browning some onion and garlic, add the beef, misc veggies, now what do I feel like? Italian or Mexican flavours? Maybe curry?
    Hmm. Think I’ll do Italian style. Tomatoes (fresh and canned). Oregano, thyme. Big dollop of pesto. Needs salt. Crumble in a bouillon cube. Boil up some pasta in another pot. Grate some parmesan. Last minute, tear up some of the last chard from the garden and stir it into the hot soup to wilt.
    Serve yourself from the stove! As much drained pasta as you please in the bottom of your bowl. Ladle on the soup. There’s freshly grated parmesan on the table, plus red pepper flakes if you like.
    Can I offer you a glass of wine?
