4 Sweet, Salty, and Savory Soup Recipes
- Autumn Carrot & Sweet Potato Soup. This soup contains all the best ingredients of a fall harvest: carrots, apples, sweet potatoes, and honey. But the special sauce is with a touch of curry powder that gives the soup a full-bodied fall flavor. Check out this Once Upon a Chef recipe.
- Savory Pumpkin Soup. Get your serving of gourds with this savory soup. A fresh sugar pumpkin and butternut squash form the base of it, but it’s the topping of dried cranberries and roasted pistachios that pulls it all together. Check out The Organic Kitchen recipe. Bonus points for using the gutted pumpkin as a holiday decoration.
- Kimchi & Vegetable Soup. Kimchi is a fermented cabbage dish that’s incredibly healthy. It contains key bacteria and probiotics that aids the digestion process and improves your body’s ability to ward off infections. Kimchi can also help boost your metabolism to increase weight loss and keep your hair and skin healthy and radiant. Enjoy this super food along with other power vegetables in this Bon Appetit recipe. Only take note of the last suggestion and add the chilled Kimchi at the end for best effects.
- Wild Turkey Barley Soup. You might have noticed a lack of meat in the aforementioned choices. Well, this wild turkey soup is sure to satisfy all of your meat cravings. Turkey-based soups are extremely popular during the fall thanks to it being the favorite of the hunting season and the quintessential dish of Thanksgiving. This means there are a variety of recipes, but we favor this one by Jabberwocky Stew. It’ll take more effort than the other soups on our list, but it is oh so worth it.
Put Your Soups on Repeat
Soups are likewise great for their re-cookability. Simply pour excess soup into air-tight zip bags or plastic containers and then stuff them into the freezer. When you’re ready for round two, simply take out the frozen fare and reheat it in a lidded pot. Tip: Add a 1/4 cup of water to prevent the bottom from burning.
