Colorful foliage, cozy sweaters, and the comfort of beloved seasonal foods – when it comes to the latter, nothing says fall like a delicious, steaming bowl of soup. While we may have our cool-weather favorites, it’s always fun to add something new to the rotation – especially when the recipe is a tried-and-true winner. Even better, all of these recipes are designed to be time savers for this busy time of year:
Sherried Tomato Soup: If you haven’t yet tried The Pioneer Woman’s exquisite creation, you’re in for a real treat. This amazing recipe pairs beautifully with tomato soup’s best friend, the grilled cheese sandwich. Best of all, it’s a cinch to make – invite your friends for Saturday lunch, then sit back and wait for the compliments to roll in.
Slow Cooker French Onion Soup: In another era, Julia Child might have stood over the stove for an eternity, caramelizing onions to achieve just the right flavor for this classic – but these days, you can walk away and let your slow cooker do the work! The soup takes a whopping 20 hours to cook, so you’ll want to start the night before you eat it, but your hands-on time is pretty minimal. This version of the technique comes from The Kitchn, and result is a delicious soup with amazingly rich flavor. For a satisfying vegetarian meal, pair it with a big green salad. Like the tomato soup above, this is both comfort food and an impressive crowd pleaser.
Loaded Potato Soup: Nothing is quite so rustic and hearty as a good bowl of potato soup, and this one delivers great flavor in a relatively healthy package, compliments of Cooking Light. Make a big pot of this before settling in to watch the big game, provide a topping bar with cheese, bacon, green onions, and sour cream, and watch your handiwork disappear.
Enjoying each season in life is about feeding your body and soul – savor these rich fall flavors, and you’ll do both in generous measure!
