Fall is all about enjoying the wonderful autumn air and basking in nature’s beauty. However, there’s also something to be said for curling up inside on a crisp, fall day with a bowl of piping hot soup. Am I right?
Arguably one of the best parts about this well-loved season is the availability of fresh and locally-grown vegetables. Soup just happens to be a great way to showcase these veggies, while also getting in a nutrient-packed meal when you may not feel like a salad. One of the best things about soup is that it can be made in large batches, making it an ideal meal to freeze for a later occasion or eat daily throughout the week for lunch. It’s also generally incredibly simple and easy to make.
