the season of soup

October 26, 2011

It’s that time of year. Finally, Minneapolis has accepted fate and we’ve left behind October temperatures in the 80s for blustery, grey mornings and quickly darkening evenings. And just like that, my body knows what’s good for it and starts intensely craving soups (and pounds of cheese and pasta, but that’s another post altogether).

In the spirit of this season of soup I thought I would share my personal to-make list of soups, in case some of you are looking for inspiration too.

Bean and lentil soups tend to be my favourite and I’ve got quite good at remembering to soak dried beans overnight and cooking them up to use in whatever (I currently have a hefty batch of French lentils and cannelini beans sitting in the fridge). I know you’ve heard it before, but they really taste better than out of a can. Really.

So, without further ado, soup!
