Rain or shine, sickness or health, these soups are perfect for a chilly fall day. Try a classic, reinvention, or new favorite. Easy preparation, easy clean-up, and minimal cooking time, soups are a hit on the dinner table and in the kitchen.
Speedy Veggie Chili uses butternut squash, a great fall vegetable. Don’t usually eat vegetarian? Don’t worry, the red beans and black beans in this soup are a great source of protein. Topping this soup with cheese would add even more protein and flavor.
Chicken noodle soup is a great choice for a rainy day or if you’re feeling under the weather. The Lady’s Chicken Noodle Soup is just like Momma used to make.
Soups are a great and easy way to put a spin on your family’s favorites.
Instead of traditional taco night, try a Taco Soup night. Set up a taco bar with all of the usual fixings (sour cream, jalapenos, tortilla chips, salsa, shredded cheese), but instead of topping tacos, top this soup! It’s a great change and helps cut down on unnecessary carbs by eliminating taco shells.
Lasagna is a delicious fall favorite, but can take hours of preparation. Instead of layering your lasagna, try Tastes Like Lasagna Soup. For some added nutritional, try sneaking in some veggies for the little ones. Diced Zucchini and Carrots are great choices.
Lemon and Tarragon are staples in chicken salad. Treat yourself to a twist on this summer salad turned fall soup—Lemon Tarragon Chicken Soup. Topping with homemade crostini or croutons would add flavor and crunch.
Simple Southern Ham and Bean Soup is a great way to use leftover holiday ham, and even leftover collards and white beans. For a creamier consistency, mash or puree half of the white beans before adding to the soup. Not a fan of collards? Spinach or Kale would be great substitutions.
Carrot Soup with Blue Cheese is a delicious way to get your vegetables! It’s got potato, onion, carrot, celery, and even lettuce! Topping with blue cheese adds creaminess and a little bite.
Coconut and curry soups are great comfort food, especially on chilly days. Creamy Coconut Soup is a perfect combination of spicy pepper flakes, cooling coconut, and zesty lime. This broth would hold up well to any protein, too. Try tofu, chicken, scallops, shrimp, or even beef.

Paula, I used to watch your show on Food Network a lot when I still had the TV and cable many year ago. You weren't even that big a star back then. I always love watching you cook on Youtube after I ditched my TV and cable and read your recipes on Food Network Magazines. I hope one day you can return to Food Network and the Food Network Magazine. I stop buying the magazine since you were gone.
