Fall Vegetable Soup

Fall Vegetable Soup

Isn’t this a pretty soup? And not only that, it’s good for you, too. And did I mention tasty? Yes, this soup is a triple threat!

I love this soup because it’s good food and I just feel good eating it. I love the hint of allspice, which is perfect for Fall. I love that I can make it anytime with whatever odds and ends of vegetables happen to be in my fridge. I think you’ll love it, too, so I wanted to share it.

Fall Vegetable Soup

My soup features carrots, parsnips, butternut squash, tomatoes, kale and mixed beans (which includes chickpeas, black, kidney and navy beans)

Cook’s Notes: This is a wonderful Fall soup that you can adapt to what vegetables you happen to have handy, so this soup is a great “fridge cleaner”. I’d really recommend the butternut squash though, as it’s lovely in this soup. Be sure to taste and add additional seasoning at the end, if necessary.

    The picture caption mentions parsnips, which I love, but I don’t see mention of them in the recipe? Not that it would need them as is it looks wonderful and quick, but would add another lovely complexity!

    I threw in a chopped parsnip into my soup, Carie that wasn’t in the original recipe. I didn’t include it in the actual recipe as the soup itself is really made for throwing extra stuff into and the list of possibilities is endless.

    My niece just made this at her fall/housewarming party (she used vegetarian bouillon cubes)…it tastes as delicious as it looks!!!!! The flavors and textures w/ the veggies and beans was incredible. Can’t wait to make it!!!

    Hello, I love vegetable soup, I am a bad cook, I tried this recipe, but my vegetables were:
    Cauliflower, butter squash, celery, baby carrots, white onion,garlic and finally 1 can of peach cream corn. The soup came out tatsting sweet :(. Help, what did I do wrong. was it the corn??

      Hi Tony, yes, I’d say the cream corn was the culprit. That stuff is surprisingly sweet! I’d just stick with the usual vegetables (even if you have just a few varieties around, just use lots of them!). If you prefer your soup a little thicker/creamier, try pureeing a bit of it and adding it back in to the soup (even a few presses with a potato masher will work) and/or, just stir in a bit of cream or milk right near the end. Hope that helps. Don’t despair. Cooking is a lifelong learning experience and trials and errors.
