7 Delicious Soup Recipes to Warm Up Your Cool Fall Nights
Fall is here! Time to get out your favorite woolen sweaters and soft, cozy shawls. As the temperature cools down outside, you may start cocooning by spending more time indoors.
With an abundance of colorful and healthy fall produce in the market these days, this is a great opportunity to simmer a hearty soup on the stove. Here are seven fall soup recipe ideas that combine harvest ingredients, warming spices, and comfort all in one steaming pot!
Creamy Fall Soup in Acorn Squash Bowls
This recipe is the epitome of fall. With the thick soup served in roasted acorn squash bowls, this recipe from Minimalist Baker looks and tastes like a harvest table. This comforting soup has 10 simple ingredients including fall favorites like squash, butternut squash, and carrots. Add red lentils for extra fiber and protein and serve it with a salad.

Cozy Autumn Wild Rice Soup
This recipe from Gimme Some Oven is perfect for a chilly autumn evening. The creamy vegetarian soup can be made in a crock pot, Instant Pot, or a pressure cooker. Seasonal veggies include sweet potatoes, carrots, celery, kale, and cremini mushrooms. For a vegan creamy option, use coconut milk.
if you like soups and old bay, this is my fave (don’t do the dairy – only add coconut milk) with extra old bay and whatever seasonings I’m feeling that day. it’s hella good with cornbread or some a baguette. https://t.co/wJjXNl5mFd

West African Inspired Peanut Stew
Lightly spiced and hearty, this soup from Cookie + Kate is a great choice for a cold night. It is creamy, spicy, vegan, and comforting all at once. Add extra fresh ginger, garlic, sriracha sauce, or cayenne for that special zing. To give it an authentic African flavor, add chopped sweet potato.
Simple Pumpkin Soup
Pumpkins are the star of the fall season. Carve them, decorate the house and garden with them, and yes, enjoy eating them. It is best to use smaller sugar pumpkins for cooking as they are more flavorful than the large Jack o’ Lantern pumpkins. Super healthy and easy, this soup from Minimalist Baker combines pureed pumpkin with coconut milk, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Serve it with a garlic, kale, and sesame topping.

Vegan Minestrone Soup
This delicious soup from Lazy Cat Kitchen is a healthy alternative to the Italian classic. Use the best of fall produce such as zucchini, carrots, celery, cabbage, potato, and kale. When you are ready to eat, add cannellini beans and pasta for a stew-like soup that is a meal on its own.
Indian Mulligatawny Soup
Mulligatawny means “pepper water” in Tamil and although this soup is prepared in southern India using chicken or lamb, here is a vegan version. Perfect for warming up on a chilly day, this soup from The Cheeky Chickpea combines carrots, celery, red lentils, and coconut milk with fragrant spices. Many mulligatawny fans also like to add chopped apples.
