Celebrate back-to-school season with soups you can enjoy all autumn long.
Back to school. Football parties. Harvest bounties. September is a great time to start making soups, stews and chilies again.
Stir up some soup
Make the most of harvest season by making soups featuring your fall favorites.
- Cream of Turkey & Wild Rice Soup: Wild rice is only harvested in August and September, so why not try a healthy twist on wild rice soup—a Minnesota specialty.
- Fall Harvest Soup: Apples, carrots, pumpkins, peppers and more—this soup puts many of the fall foods you crave in one place.
- Golden Squash Bisque: A tasteful, creamy soup that won’t wreck your diet and is ready in 20 minutes.
- Pumpkin Soup: You make this soup with canned pumpkin all year, but it’s even better when pumpkins are in season.
Serve up some chili
Spice up your next football party or fall get together with one these chili recipes (even if it’s not chilly outside yet).
- Firehouse Station 2 Healthy Chili: This turkey-based chili—created by firefighters in Wisconsin—is easy to make and gets rave reviews.
- Spicy White Chili: Green chilies, garlic and a blend of herbs and spices give the right amount of flavor to this white chicken chili.
- Zesty Wheat Berry-Black Bean Chili A mix of wheat berries, beans, peppers and onion—this one-pot chili is a hearty fall treat.
Put `em in a bread bowl
September is also Whole Grains Month. So whichever soup or chili you choose, serve it in a healthy whole grain bread bowl. Make your own whole wheat bread bowl from scratch or simply buy large whole grain rolls from your local market.
