Autumn means we’re moving into warm and cozy comfort food. We have to build up some body fat to keep us warm through the winter, right?! So that means we need to eat lots of pot pie, mashed potatoes with gravy, stroganoff, and hot soup. I’m a little obsessed with soup due to the fact that it’s usually super easy to put together, and it’s almost always inexpensive, too! And if you have a crock pot, you just throw everything inside and and you’re all done!
Most of the ingredients in these soups are things you’ll find in your house already (no crazy exotic spices that will cost you $5 and an extra frantic trip to Whole Foods). And they’re all fairly inexpensive as well.
My first favorite is actually the first soup I ever made on my own. In my tender middle-school years I found this recipe online, tried it out, and loved it! If a 14 year old with zero cooking experience can do it, I assure you that you can do it, too!
Here is the recipe for Cuban Black Bean Potato Soup. While any thing with potatoes in it screams comfort food, it’s actually pretty healthy for you. There is so much protein from the beans, and the flavor is fantastic.
The second soup I just have to share with you is a Butternut Squash Soup. Since we’re already talking about my middle-school self, I have to mention that I used to hate Butternut Squash Soup. My taste buds changed over the years for sure, but I’d honestly have to say that I probably wasn’t exposed to the best Butternut Squash soup, and if I had tasted this one, I’m sure that I never would’ve thought I disliked it. So even if you’re not so sure you love butternut squash, give this recipe a try. It’s so creamy and delicious!
So that’s it! Two delicious and inexpensive soup recipes perfect for September (and October and November and forever) that you’re sure to love!
