Sep 22, 2015

Warm up this fall with one of Timbercreek Communities’ top picks for delicious, nutritious and easy-to-make fall-inspired soups. Timbercreek’s Guelph apartments are located throughout the city’s most vibrant areas, including downtown Guelph and near the University of Guelph and its various campuses.

Autumn Minestrone Soup

Enjoy this healthy Autumn Minestrone Soup or freeze it for nutritious make-ahead TC Guelph Soupmeals. This soup is full of delicious and in-season vegetables and makes for a wonderful light lunch or accompaniment to dinner. For this recipe you can pick and choose your favourite vegetables to include, such as kale, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, zucchini and more. We recommend picking up some fresh and in-season vegetables to make your soup as delicious as possible. The Guelph Farmers’ Market is only a 15-minute transit ride from Timbercreek’s 27 Vanier Drive Community in Guelph and is the perfect place to pick up local and in-season produce.

Autumn Chowder

For an equally delicious but more hearty soup than the Autumn Minestrone, try this Autumn Chowder. This recipe is full of vegetables but has a creamy twist thanks to a bit of milk, bacon and cheddar cheese. Autumn Chowder is essentially comfort in a bowl and perfect for those cooler fall nights.

Kale White Bean and Sausage Soup

Try this recipe for Kale White Bean and Sausage Soup for a healthy, hearty and easy autumn lunch or dinner. This soup is destined to be a crowd pleaser and your little ones won’t even complain about the kale. This soup is also packed with protein and nutrients thanks to all of the kale and cannellini beans. For a vegetarian twist, simple take out the sausage and enjoy.

Thai Spiced Pumpkin Soup

Spice things up a little bit this fall with this recipe for Thai Spiced Pumpkin Soup. This pumpkin soup recipe is perfect for the autumn season and simple to make. It’s also less than five ingredients, takes only a couple minutes of active cooking time and requires only a blender and a pot to create. Keep in mind that different Thai curry pastes have differing strengths, and to start with a small amount and build from there until you reach your desired level of spice.

Five-Onion Soup with Scallion Crostini

This Five-Onion Soup with Scallion Crostini may sound fancy, but it’s a simple and delicious soup that is good for you too. It only requires approximately 15 minutes of hands-on time (the rest is just cooking time) and includes delicious onions such as shallots, white onions, red onions and scallions. Serve the soup with a toasted garlic and cheese baguette (or crostini) for an extra special twist.
