It’s that time of year. Finally, Minneapolis has accepted fate and we’ve left behind October temperatures in the 80s for blustery, grey mornings and quickly darkening evenings. And just like that, my body knows what’s good for it and starts intensely craving soups (and pounds of cheese and pasta, but that’s another post altogether).
In the spirit of this season of soup I thought I would share my personal to-make list of soups, in case some of you are looking for inspiration too.
Bean and lentil soups tend to be my favourite and I’ve got quite good at remembering to soak dried beans overnight and cooking them up to use in whatever (I currently have a hefty batch of French lentils and cannelini beans sitting in the fridge). I know you’ve heard it before, but they really taste better than out of a can. Really.
So, without further ado, soup!
Cauliflower Soup with Mustard and Gruyère croûtons – from Gourmet Traveller
Twice Cooked Tuscan Bread Soup – from Saveur
African Peanut Soup – Relishing It
Kale Tortellini Soup – Running with Tweezers
Chunky Vegetable Soup – Butterfly Food
French Onion Soup – Bon Appetit
Creamy White Chicken Chili from Eat Live Run
And a few personal favourites from this site. Reading back over these posts makes me want to hide inside a sleeping bag and never come out :)
