30 Fall Soups To Get You Into The Cozy Spirit

Fall is our favorite season. The weather gets cooler, the leaves change color, and the air smells crisp and fresh. There are lots of fun things to do outdoors too.

For example, you can go apple picking, visit pumpkin patches, watch football games, and enjoy Halloween festivities. If you want to stay indoors, then you can bake pies, decorate cookies, and roast marshmallows.

Chick-fil-A is known for serving chicken sandwiches, waffle fries, and milkshakes, but did you know there’s something else they serve up? Their famous tortilla soup.

Lobsters are one of my favorite seafood delicacies. And since it’s summer, we thought we’d make some lobster bisque. This rich and creamy soup is perfect for a cold winter day.

This recipe calls for Maine lobsters. They’re smaller than the ones we see here in California, but they still taste great.

30. French Onion Soup

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of French onion soup recipes out there, but none of them come close to Julia Child’s original recipe (see also “13 Julia Child Recipes That Will Make You Feel Like a True Chef“). She called it “the perfect meal,” and her version is still the best.

The classic French onion soup consists of caramelized onions, beef stock, Gruyère cheese, bread crumbs, and lots of butter.

The dish originated in the late 19th century in France and became popular in America during World War II. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How To Make Soups For Fall

If you want to enjoy some hearty comfort food during football season, soups are always a good choice.

They’re filling enough to satisfy even the hungriest appetites, and they usually don’t require much attention once they start cooking.

You can prep the ingredients ahead of time and just turn the heat on whenever you’re ready to eat. Above are some recipes for delicious, easy-to-make soups that will warm you up no matter what the weather outside.

What’s The Difference Between Summer and Fall Soups?

Summer is known for lighter foods like salads and fruit bowls. But there’s nothing light about the flavors of fall. We’re talking rich, creamy dishes like chicken noodle casserole and baked beans.

And while it might seem counterintuitive to serve such heavy fare in the cooler months, it actually makes perfect sense. After all, a hot meal is what you crave when the weather turns chilly.

As the days grow shorter, we want comfort food that warms us up inside and out.

But let’s face it – sometimes even comfort food can feel too heavy. So why not try serving some lighter options during the warmer seasons? You’ll find plenty of healthy alternatives to traditional winter favorites.
