What is the difference between summer and autumn soup?
For our family, soup is definitely something we don’t eat often during the summer. However, I know a lot of people who enjoy a big bowl of soup no matter the temperature. Others satisfy these cravings by eating a cold soup like gazpacho or chilled cucumber, both great when summer gardens are overflowing with veggies!
When fall comes, our soups tend to include fall vegetables like squash, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin. It’s thick and hearty to keep us warm. From chilies and powder to soups and stews, when we think of soups for fall, the possibilities are endless.
