There’s nothing like a bowl of soup to warm you up on a chilly autumn day. Time to get cozy!

Easy Butternut Squash Soup — (pictured above) This butternut squash soup is silky, slightly sweet and full of flavor. It’s got to be the easiest soup recipe ever — you basically throw everything in a pot, simmer it, purée it and you’re done.

French Lentil and Vegetable Soup with Bacon – The smokiness of the bacon, earthiness of the lentils, mild sweetness of the onions and acidity of the tomatoes gives this soup many layers of flavor. It’s made with French green lentils, which hold their shape when cooked, and thicken the soup without turning it to sludge.

Autumn Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup — Curry powder gives this savory soup a hint of sweetness and spice, which makes it taste like fall in a bowl.

Black Bean Soup — Here’s a healthy Southwestern-flavored bean soup that’s as simple as it is delicious. What makes it so good is the high proportion of vegetables to beans – lots of onions, garlic and even some carrots in the mix.

Classic Tomato Soup – This delicious tomato soup is surprisingly easy to make. The only chopping involves some onions, garlic and basil, and the rest comes out of cartons and jars.
