Butternut Squash, spinach, and miso soup

Once you’ve got the squash baked, this warming noodle soup with colorful and nutritious veggies comes together quickly. It’s as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate. Use chopsticks for “slurping” the noodles, then enjoy the rest with a spoon. Adapted from Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons.  Photos by Janet at The Taste Space.

Squash, Sweet Potato, and Corn Chowder

Squash and corn chowder

Squash, corn, and sweet potato combine to make a hearty chowder that’s especially perfect for fall. Though this admittedly involves a bit of preparation, none of it is difficult. It’s a great soup to make on a quiet Sunday — you’ll be happy to come home to it during the week! It’s delicious with fresh cornbread. It’s also the kind of soup you won’t mind making an extra effort to make for holiday meals like Thanksgiving. more→

Roasted Root Vegetable Soup

Assorted root vegetables

I make roasted vegetables at least once a week all winter. It’s so pleasant to warm the house, to make it smell good, and then to have that panful of roasted vegetables that could be boring but now are glazed with olive oil and sherry, sweetly caramelized, dark brown around the edges. If possible, use homemade broth for this soup, one that is not too sweet. The roasted vegetables will provide plenty of sweetness. Recipe from Love Soup* by Anna Thomas. more→

Kale, Yellow Squash, and Sweet Potato Stew

Curly green kale

As everyone knows, greens are good for you, but with its high calcium content, kale is a standout. Its deep green color and elaborately ruffled leaves, contrasted with the yellow of the squash and the orange of the sweet potato, makes this an attractive and nourishing dish for the early autumn harvest.
