Celebrate back-to-school season with soups you can enjoy all autumn long.

Time to fall for soup again

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).

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.
