With the brisk chill of fall settling into your bones and plenty of flavorful produce being sold at farmers’ markets and other venues, the time is just right for trying out warm, delicious soups. Now is the time to stock up on ingredients before the start of winter (and the end of farm fresh produce for another several months) as well as to test drive a few recipes before the holidays. We’ll go over six different fall soups, starting with...
Sweet Potato Peanut Bisque
This soup takes the savory taste of peanuts, sweet potatoes, and garlic and spices it up with a bit of green chili and ground pepper. Fresh ingredients you’ll want to look out for include sweet potatoes (obviously), yellow onions, garlic cloves, fresh ginger, and cilantro leaves.

Chicken and Spinach Soup with Fresh Pesto
This soup is quick and easy to prepare, using fast-cooking ingredients such as chicken and baby spinach leaves for a delicious, Italian-style taste that perks the senses on those cool autumn days. Added in at the end is a simple pesto with basil and parmesan to bring in even more flavor.
Pork, White Bean, and Kale Soup
Fast and simple, this soup combines pork tenderloin, white beans, and kale with a bit of paprika for a satisfying dish with a bit of Spanish zest to kick it up a notch. Garlic, onion, and tomatoes add the flavoring you need for this fall soup.
Cream of Turkey and Wild Rice Soup
Looking for a way to use leftover turkey this Thanksgiving? This soup is one way. It calls for savory produce such as carrots, celery, shallots, and fresh parsley. Sliced mushrooms and wild rice complete the dish with just a bit of sour cream for some extra zing.
Slow-Cooker Black Bean-Mushroom Chili
Fall is the season for chili, and this one provides a more earthy—but certainly flavorful—take on the dish. Just prepare and combine the ingredients at the start of the day and let it cook until suppertime. Enjoy with a bit of sour cream for a healthy and delicious meal.
Japanese Chicken-Scallion Rice Bowl
This one is fast and simple but is certainly nutritious and high in protein. While the recipe does call for some sugar (as any traditional Japanese dish should), it’s not strictly necessary.
With the right ingredients stewed in rich, hearty broth, you can enjoy mealtimes this fall with these soups. Looking for a nice side packed with protein? Look into Protes Protein Chips for some extra crunch.
