Fall Harvest Soup

The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions and to ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required as well as understand the steps and timings involved.

If you are looking for a new recipe for soup that is full of flavor and comforting, this is the soup for you! If you can use ingredients harvested from your kitchen garden, then it will truly be a fall harvest soup!

This soup is made with butternut squash, apples, and onions and flavored with a variety of spices.

Now, if you saw my butternut squash soup recipe a few days back you might be thinking “what’s different about this soup?”. Well, let me tell you!

That soup was made in the slow cooker and flavored with curry spices. This one has more of a pumpkin pie spice flavor profile.

What really sets this soup apart though, is that the vegetables and fruit are roasted BEFORE you blend them into the broth.

Slow roasting them first with the spices really enables the flavors to marry and come together.

Once cooked, top with toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds), croutons, pecans or even a swirl of cream.

And for fall dinner parties why not serve it in a hollowed out squash instead of a bowl?
