Recipe roundup: Fall soups, #1
If I should pick just one single dish to eat throughout fall and winter months, it would definitely be soup. One of the things I love most about the cooling weather is an excuse to prepare a big batch of hearty soup and then enjoy it with fresh bread or savory croutons, both at home and at work. That's another great thing about soups in general - they are the perfect lunchbox meal that can be brought to the office and devoured in between two tedious tasks.
What I love most about soups is their versatility - the fact that I can make them as healthy or decadent as I wish. I will never tire of searching for new recipes and trying new ingredients and flavor combinations, that's for sure.
My two all-time favorites: creamy tomato and Hokkaido squash soups have been on heavy rotation in my house, but I'm willing to expand my horizons a little bit, and experiment with ingredients like beans, cauliflower, beetroot, potatoes, kohlrabi, maybe even apples and pears. These recipes are currently on top of my "must try" list, but if you have a favorite that you think I shouldn't miss, be sure to send it my way.
