1) Family Favorite Chili Recipe
If you’re looking for a hearty meal that will warm you up during these cooler months, look no further than your own kitchen. This hearty chili recipe from our own family favorite recipe is sure to satisfy (with a secret ingredient too!). Try it tonight with a salad and fresh bread!
2) Pumpkin Crab Bisque
There’s no better time to eat pumpkin than during fall. In fact, you could serve a bowl of creamy pumpkin soup as an appetizer, or as a main course with a salad and some crusty bread.
This Pumpkin Crab Bisque Soup has a delightful twist! With simple ingredients and about 25 minutes from start to finish, it’s a great dinner option for busy weeknights. The taste is delicious, too: you’ll find sweet chunks of crab as a seafood twist in a light but flavorful broth that is brought to life with a dash of balsamic vinegar.
3) Chicken Zucchini Noodle Soup
Chicken Zucchini Noodle Soup is a light and easy soup that is perfect for any time of year, but especially during colder months when you are looking for lighter meals. Serve it with a side salad or eat it by itself to get your daily serving of vegetables! Chicken noodle soup is always a winner in our book, but that doesn’t mean you can’t experiment. In fact, if you swap out noodles for zucchini, you get a healthy twist on an old favorite—this low carb Chicken Zucchini Noodle Soup.
4) Vegan Butternut Squash Soup
For a subtle fall flavor that is neither sweet nor spicy, butternut squash soup is perfect. Butternut squash (aka pumpkin of summer) has a neutral flavor and blends well with both sweet and savory ingredients, making it easy to create several variations on your favorite recipe. In fact, I love it so much that I find myself making this Butternut Squash Soup more in late summer when winter squash becomes available than I do in November. The great thing about butternut squash soup is that you can easily veganize it! Add a little almond milk or coconut milk and some nutmeg and you’re good to go! My favorite way to enjoy butternut squash soup is with a grilled sandwich for dipping! Yum.
5) Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili
This soup, which combines chicken, white beans and corn with a few spices to make it warm and comforting, can be made in a slow cooker. It’s easy to make, reheats well and makes your house smell great when it’s cooking! The best part about slow cooker soups is that you can set them up before you go to work in the morning, let them simmer for 6-8 hours while you are gone all day long, then come home at night to dinner ready to eat.
Creamy, dreamy and delicious… this Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili is on regular repeat in our home.
6) Creamy Pumpkin Soup
There’s nothing like a hot bowl of soup on a cold day, especially when it’s fall. This Creamy Pumpkin Soup is one of our favorite recipes because it takes minutes to prepare and combines one of our favorite fall flavors — pumpkin — with a savory twist. It also happens to be incredibly filling! Just mix everything together in a large pot and then blend until smooth. Easy peasy! We love serving ours with some garlic bread cubes on top or just on its own alongside salad or crusty bread with olive oil drizzled over top. Leftovers are great for lunch, too.
