If we were told we absolutely had to pick a favourite fall dish and that’s all we could eat the whole season, making our choice would be shockingly east for us. That’s because we’re completely obsessed with fall soups! There’s just something about a warm bowl of soup that makes us feel satisfied and comfortable in the chilly weather, and autumn comes with some particularly delicious seasonal flavours that we love to try all different combinations and versions of.
Just in case you adore fall soups just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the very best homemade autumn recipes that we’ve come across so far in this year’s search!

If you ask us, pumpkins are undoubtedly the most popular thing in fall. Whether you’re eating them, using their flavour in drinks, or using them for decor, almost everyone loves pumpkins. That’s why we were very pleased but not in the least bit surprised to find a deliciously simple and wonderfully satisfying homemade pumpkin soup first thing! See how this delicious dish is made on Chowhound.
