Eight heartwarming soup recipes

Stay in and warm up by cooking up a batch or two of our delicious soups.

Hello October, and welcome back warm and toasty soups. When the weather starts to cool, it’s the perfect time to dig through your repertoire of soup and stew recipes, and start making a batch or two.

Keeping with this theme, an event that I’ll be attending this weekend is Soupalicious (Oct 1-2, from 11am-4pm), a soup-tasting and harvest celebration. Over 60 restaurants, caterers, cookbook authors, chefs and celebrities are set to stir up their pots and ladle out delicious soups to support the veggie-gardening and food-sharing program, Plant a Row • Grow a Row.

If you’re not in the Toronto area, don’t fret. Today, we are kicking off our new 31 days of soups, stews and slow-cooker recipes. Also, here are eight delicious and heartwarming soups to get you through the chilly weekend:

*Hearty quinoa and bean soup

*Green pea and white bean soup

*Creamy celery and fennel soup

*Tom yum soup with chicken and shrimp

*Cilantro lime chicken soup 

*Tomato fennel fish stew

*Lentil, kale and sausage soup

*Smoky corn chowder with bacon
