Fall Soups

Are you a soup lover? On a gloomy day like today who wouldn't love a hot bowl of soup for lunch? I came across these 31 recipes on Chatelaine and had to share them.

I've actually never made a big pot of soup from scratch but it's something I plan on doing this fall and winter more then once.

Here are a couple soups I'd love to tackle.

French Country Chicken Soup

Ingredients
  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs or 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
  • 2 900-mL cartons chicken broth or 8 cups (2 L) chicken bouillon
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Dijon
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) dried tarragon
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each ground nutmeg and white pepper
  • 6 baby potatoes
  • 4 carrots
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 3 leeks 


Squash Soup with Smoky Bacon

Ingredients
  • 1 large butternut squash or 5 cups squash pieces
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 plum tomatoes
  • 1 large onion
  • 5 thick slices of bacon, preferably double-smoked
  • 1/2 tsp each dried sage leave, oregano leaves and salt
  • 900 mL carton chicken broth or 2 284 mL cans undiluted chicken broth
  • 1/3 cups shredded fresh basil (optional)
