Autumn equals soup. Soup equals Autumn. You get the idea; soup is a staple during the colder months. This warming bowl of loveliness is perfect because it's silky smooth, but yet has quite the spicy edge. Perfect if you have the sniffles and want a big hit of flavour. It's also pretty great if you're perfectly healthy and well. Either way, everyone knows that wholesome soup is good for the body, as well as the soul.
