Fall is here–the leaves are changing, the weather is cooler and the food is delicious!  Fall is by far my favorite time of year, especially for the food! Nothing excites me more than finding new recipes to try!  Check out these recipes, courtesy of delish.com, that are perfect for this Fall season:


Pumpkin Soup

What’s better than cozying up on the couch, putting on a movie you love and warming up to a nice bowl of soup. 

 

INGREDIENTS

1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 lb. pumpkin (any kind but preferably sugar pie)
4 c. low-sodium chicken broth
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 c. heavy cream, plus more for garnish

 

DIRECTIONS

  • In a heavy soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and garlic and cook until golden. 
  • Meanwhile, halve, peel, and scrape out seeds of the pumpkin. Cut into chunks.
  • Add pumpkin chunks and broth to pot. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, uncovered, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer until pumpkin is fork-tender, about 30 minutes. 
  • Remove pot from heat and, using an immersion blender, blend mixture until smooth. (Alternatively, let soup cool, then blend in a blender.) Stir in cream and season to taste. 
  • To serve, ladle soup into bowls, add a swirl of cream, and garnish with pepper.

INGREDIENTS

Cooking spray, for pan

2/3 c. heavy cream
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
FOR THE TOPPING

1 1/2 c. dark brown sugar
Pinch kosher salt
3/4 c. cold butter, in 1/2" cubes
1 c. chopped pecans
Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, for garnish
