We have included a wide variety of seasonal soups. There is at least one vegetarian option every month, although many soups can be easily made without meat or meat-based broth. Any Instant Pot or slowcooker recipe can also be made on the stove, just increase the cooking time and adjust the amount of water or broth accordingly.
If you have any favorite seasonal soups, please feel free to send them in. Not only will the recipe be entered in our Recipe contest, it also may be picked as our weekly soup recipe.
Autumn is a perfect time for comforting and savory soups, as the leaves and temperatures start to fall. It is also harvest time so there are lots of seasonal ingredients available, like pumpkins, potatoes and other hearty vegetables that combine well in soups and stews.
Summer soups generally take advantage the bounty of the season, using ingredients like tomatoes, peppers and fresh herbs. Some like gazpacho are served cold, a perfect light meal for a hot summer night.
Spring calls out for fresh and green ingredients in soup, like fresh new peas or greens. The weather can still be cold and rainy so a warm bowl of soup will be appreciated at the end of a busy day.
Here are all 13 weeks from the first three months of our Year of Delicious Soup. The soups focus on seasonal ingredients and appealing flavors for cold weather.
