Soup season is officially here! We encourage you to take some time this season to make and enjoy some healthy soup. Making soup is great because you can use fresh ingredients and make a batch to feed a whole family or freeze later. Here are seven healthy and hearty soups that are perfect for making any time this fall or winter.
Tomato Basil Soup
Take tomato soup to the next level by making it yourself. This soup is so easy to make, simply sauteing and combining various fresh ingredients with vegetable broth. Adding basil brings a robust flavor that perfectly complements crackers or a grilled cheese sandwich.
Roasted Pumpkin Soup
It doesn’t get much more autumn than roasted pumpkin soup. Blended pumpkin mixed with coconut milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, and nutmeg are all the best things about fall in one bowl. Top with toasted pepitas for extra flair.
This chowder is an excellent lunch for a cold autumn day. It has corn, potatoes, and garlic – all the good things! Sweet and hearty, this soup can be made on the stove or in a slow cooker, ready to eat in a few hours, or frozen and saved for later.
Cauliflower Parmesan Soup
Anything with parmesan is going to be good, and this soup is no exception. Cauliflower is perfect for cooking and absorbing flavors like thyme, chives, and of course, parmesan. This soup can be enjoyed as a snack, appetizer, or meal.
Butternut Squash Soup
Squash is easy to find in the fall and makes the perfect main ingredient for soup. Combine carrots, garlic, and celebrity for a delicious soup that can be enjoyed fresh or frozen and saved for another day.

Roasted red peppers, chickpeas, and broth make up this deliciously easy soup that can be made in just under 30 minutes. Top with sliced almonds before eating for an extra nutritious crunch!
This is a great soup to make with whatever veggies you have lying around the house. Start with vegetable or chicken broth and add as many vegetables as you would like. Celery, carrots, potatoes, and cabbage all make great ingredients.
Embrace soup season by trying a new recipe or two. Seasonal vegetables are easy to find, reasonably priced, and best of all – healthy and full of flavor! Soup is also great as it can be made in large batches and given to friends or frozen for a later date.
