Five Fall Super Soups
A round-up of a few of my favorite soups for the fall, plus soup Internet folklore.
Even though it has been in the mid-sixties here in Denver for the last week (and for the foreseeable future), I'm still claiming we are well into soup season.
Over the years, I’ve learned a few things about soup that may or may not be interesting to you.
If a soup recipe on the Internet has the word “creamy” in the title, it’s almost a guarantee that there is an entire block of cream cheese in the recipe.
Every year people try to make Lasagna Soup a thing. I get it. You are putting lasagna noodles in soup. But lasagna soup is not a thing. (Funny TikTok)
Did you know that Lionel Messi sometimes eats soup before soccer games? For that reason my 9-year old will frequently eat chicken noodle soup for breakfast.
Okay, let’s get to the recipes. Crunch Time Kitchen has loads of good soup recipes from over the years, some more involved than others. Here are five that I’m craving this fall though. I hope you try one!
Pretty much every ingredient in this soup is in the title. The thing that shocked me when I was working on this soup was how much flavor comes from the brown butter. Pretty much any time you are working on a root vegetable soup, adding brown butter is probably a great idea. This soup very well might make it on my Thanksgiving menu this year!
This pot roast soup is a great lazy Sunday soup recipe, but cooks faster than a full-on pot roast. The flavors are deep and delicious and it’s truly comfort food in a bowl. Serve it with some garlic bread and you are in business.
If you have picky-eater kids, this ramen chicken noodle soup was a break-through for me. My kids love it because the parts are all familiar but the flavors are a bit of a reach (coconut, etc.) Using a rotisserie chicken makes this soup a sub-30-minute recipe. Definitely Crunch Time worthy!
This soup is from one of my favorite pressure cooker cookbooks. I love that it’s vegetarian and has standard ingredients. It’s a full-on veggie soup but the flavors are really interesting. I love it with some hearty bread or a side salad. Also makes great lunches as it reheats well in the microwave.
Somehow this soup doesn’t have cream cheese in it, but is also creamy. It’s potato soup at its pinnacle! This is one of my favorite snow day soups because it can simmer while you play and then you just blend it up and it’s ready to go!
