Foodie Friday: Delicious soup recipes that will warm you this winter

Foodie Friday: Delicious soup recipes that will warm you this winter

Good soup is a treat on any day of the year, but there is something about the onset of autumn, with its brisk early-morning temperatures hinting at the bone-cold weather to come, that get the belly yearning for a bowlful of warming comfort.

So come October, Front Range cooks — whether amateur or professional — start thinking about hauling out their pots and loading up the larder with vegetables and meats that evoke the season.

At Vert Kitchen, a popular sandwich shop at 704 S. Pearl St., chef-owner Noah Stephens routinely has two soups on his menu. Right now he has rotated between cool-weather favorites: a curried carrot soup and another that combines corn and winter squash.

“I like a little bit of spice and warmth in the mouth that makes your whole body warm up,” Stephens says. “I also like a sort of citrus bite, which is why I enjoy using curry and coriander.”

Stephens is also an advocate of seasonal color in his soups. Come autumn, that means yellow, reds, golds and oranges. In short, the color of turning leaves on hardwood trees.

“Color is important,” he says. “Squash and corn kind of look like fall.”

During cooler months, he also enjoys making seasonal garnishes for his soups. One he’s using now is a mix of shaved and pickled apples and beets.

We asked some Mile High chefs to share some of their favorite cold-weather soup recipes from their restaurants.
