To celebrate, we’ve rounded up some of the best healthy soup recipes from around the web, perfect for those nights when you need a little somethin’ extra soothing. From pumpkin soup to beef and barley, we’ve got soups aplenty—so grab a spoon and pick your poison!

Chipotle Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkin soups are a dime a dozen during the fall season, but this unique version really shines above the rest. Creamy and soothing, with just enough chipotle to give it a smooth kick, this soup from blogger Emily Jacobs achieves the perfect balance of spicy and sweet. For a truly show-stopping meal, garnish with roasted pumpkin seeds and a generous swirl of cooling Greek yogurt.

Crockpot Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Catz in the Kitchen

The best part about slow cookers? They’re incredibly low-maintenance and user-friendly. Assemble this heavenly combination of ground turkey, pumpkin puree and chili spices in the morning for a hearty fall meal that will be ready by day’s end. A side of cornbread is optional but highly encouraged, of course.

Slow-Cooker Quinoa Soup

Contrary to popular misconception, eating healthy doesn’t have to burn a hole in your wallet. Case in point: Thrifty Below’s lovely slow-cooker vegetable and quinoa soup, which is packed with a colorful combination of nourishing veggies and enough fiber-rich beans and grains to make it a meal in itself.

Curried Coconut Cauliflower Soup

Happy Healthy Life

Curry and cauliflower go together like peas in a pod. This creamy soup, which is bursting with aromatic Indian spices and sweetened with a hint of maple syrup, achieves a nice flavor balance of spicy and sweet. Blended cauliflower provides the rich base and a slight hint of coconut milk makes things extra creamy. Round out the meal with a hunk of warm Naan bread and some delicate salad greens.

Crockpot Hearty Beef Stew

SassyEats.com

Beef and barley soup is a longtime favorite, and blogger Sassy Eats serves up a healthy tribute to this time-honored combination. Tailor the recipe according to your whims.

Hearty Chicken Pumpkin Soup

WishesNDishes.com

A crowd-pleaser that comes together in less than 30 minutes, this hassle-free soup combines canned pumpkin, shredded chicken (use a Rotisserie chicken to shave off even more prepwork), and a touch of heavy cream.

Hearty Italian Chicken and Autumn Veggie Soup With Gnocchi

This soup, you guys. This soup! It’s too good not to pass along. Chock-full of shredded chicken, a host of veggies, and a smattering of gnocchi (!!!), this delectable soup is best served warm with a loaf of rustic Italian bread.

Leek Apple Cheddar Soup

Running To The Kitchen

Don’t be deterred by this soup’s vibrant green color—it tastes nothing like a spinach smoothie! Fresh Granny Smith apples and white cheddar take center stage in this fall-centric soup, which is sweet, creamy, and topped with walnuts and cranberries. What’s not to love?

Pilgrim Stew

Wholehearted Eats

On blustery fall nights, give your body some much-needed TLC with Wholehearted Eat’s Pilgrim Stew. As the recipe name suggests, this stew is simple and nourishing—but far from boring. Blending chunky potatoes, squash, and plenty of winter veggies, this vegetarian soup is hearty enough to please meat-eaters and herbivores alike.
