10 easy fall soups to keep you warm as the weather gets cooler

SALT LAKE CITY — Fall is a great season with great produce and great weather. It's easier to be outside during the middle of the day but gets pretty cool at night. This makes it a good time to whip out our favorite blankets and sweatshirts and cook stews and soups to warm up through the fall and winter.

Instead of cooking up any old soup, try out soups with fall produce like squash, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and carrots. Since these vegetables are in season, they'll be tastier and usually less expensive.

So cozy up and enjoy these 10 fall soup recipes from registered dietitians. They all take about 30 minutes or less to make, so you won't be left hungry after a long day. You can even pair them with your favorite protein and crusty bread.

GIVE ME ALL THE PUMPKIN THINGS! 🎃⠀ This time of year I have been know to hoard cans and cans of pumpkin. Remember the pumpkin shortage scare of 2015? Well, the shortage never really happened, but I still find myself hoarding copious amounts of my favorite fall vegetable, just in case. Double tap if you too have multiple cans of the orange stuff in your pantry right now!⠀ So what's a girl to do with all that pumpkin? 🤷 I'm sharing a pumpkin recipe each week during October on my blog, and today I shared this Easy Pumpkin Soup. It's rich and creamy, but with less fat than many creamy soups (you'll have to click over to the recipe to see what I used in place of heavy cream). Enjoy with crusty bread and salad for a light fall dinner, or top with crispy kale chips like I did here. Recipe link in bio ⠀ ⠀
