From savory broth and tender meats, to fresh vegetables and flavorful herbs and spices from your kitchen pantry cabinet, here are five seasonal soups to try this fall and winter!
Cream of Pumpkin Soup
This recipe from Better Homes and Gardens features the signature flavors of fall and is easy to make at home. Canned pumpkin and chicken broth serve as the base, seasoned with garlic, onions, and both red and black pepper from your spice rack. You’ll also need flour, butter, and half-and-half, plus some orzo or wild rice from your kitchen pantry cabinet.

Chicken Soup is the epitome of comfort food. This basic recipe from Martha Stewart starts with a whole chicken, yet it can be made in less than an hour. But first, you’ll need to pull out a large stock pot from your cookware organizer. Simple and wholesome, this soup also features a healthy dose of garlic and fresh, seasonal produce like carrots and celery. Click here to get the recipe from Martha Stewart.
Sweet Potato Soup
This creamy soup from Southern Living is perfect for chilly evenings. It calls for both sweet and Yukon Gold potatoes, which are typically harvested in autumn. You can make Sweet Potato Soup in less than an hour, with warm spices like cumin, cinnamon and cayenne pepper, plus a few more basic ingredients from your refrigerator and kitchen cabinet. Topped with crunchy pecans and a dollop of plain yogurt, this soup is sure to become a fall family favorite. Click here for the recipe from Southern Living.
French Onion Soup
Like carrots, celery, potatoes and pumpkin, onions are also a cold-weather crop. This hearty soup from The Kitchn calls for three pounds of yellow onions and a must-have fall and winter small appliance — the slow cooker! While easy to make, the total cook time is about 20 hours and well worth the wait. With rich beef broth, caramelized onions, toasty bread, and melted Gruyère cheese, French Onion soup will always be a classic.

Ham And Bean Soup
This rib-sticking soup from The Spruce Eats starts with dry Great Northern or Navy beans simmered with water, seasonal vegetables and herbs, tomato sauce, and a ham bone or hock. You can speed things up by soaking the beans overnight, or bring them to a boil in a Dutch Oven, remove them from the heat, and let them sit covered for an hour before adding the remaining ingredients.
