Fall is in full swing and everyone has soup on the brain. Whether you’re looking for a chicken soup to help stop the cold you’re afraid you're coming down with or a pumpkin soup to serve at Thanksgiving, it’s time to break out your favorite Dutch oven or soup pot and get cooking.

Soup: it’s what you reach for during the coldest days of winter to warm up from the inside out, and where you put excess fresh tomatoes during the summer. While sometimes it’s easier to open up a can and heat it up, there’s nothing better than the scent of aromatics like onions, celery, and carrots stewing away with whatever else you have on hand. And honestly, you don’t need much time or many ingredients.

At its simplest, soup is water boiled with stuff. The stuff can be anything, from vegetable scraps to high-quality meat, and it flavors the water enough to make it taste good.

Because it’s so simple, soup is universal to every culture and almost every time period. The word “broth” first appeared around the year 1000.

Soup is one of the easiest things to perfect in the kitchen, especially when you use store-bought stock (though stock is also super easy to make). Click here to see a few basic rules for making all different types of stocks. Almost every hot soup starts out with sautéed aromatics like onions, garlic, carrots, and celery. After that it’s up to you to decide what to add. Season your soup as it cooks and continually taste to check on the flavor.

It’s hard to think about when you’re wearing sweaters every day, but chilled soups are even easier to make than the hot varieties. Gazpacho — a Spanish cold blended soup of tomatoes, a bit of old bread, and some sherry vinegar — is a summertime staple, but there are many other chilled soups to cool you down throughout the summer.

There’s a soup for every season in these 101 recipes, so find the soup that fits your mood and enjoy!
