Quiz: What Cozy Season Soup Should You Make?

I used to avoid telling people how much of a soup lover I am. Like, if someone asked me what my favorite food was I would get anxious about having to defend soup — and most of the time I didn’t have the energy, so I’d say tacos or Thai. But soup is so comforting! I know it sounds corny, but eating a bowl of soup feels like a full body hug. It’s also fairly easy to make, there are endless options, and you’ll have leftovers! Even if you don’t love soup as much as I do, you can probably agree that Fall and Winter — Cozy Season — is the perfect time for a hot bowl of soup. Take the quiz for cozy season soup recommendations, and your results will include a recipe! All the recipes I’ve included are vegetarian or vegan with easy substitutions, and all soups feature a cozy season vegetable. Please give them a try!

  1. I just wrote “make soup” on my to do list for next week and then found this quiz minutes late!! I love cookie + kate she is so reliable for amazing veggie recipes and I haven’t tried this cauliflower one! Thank you xxx

  2. This is so great. I wasn’t sure about my first result (PUMPKIN BEER CHEESE SOUP WITH ROSEMARY CROUTONS) but my second result is definitely my kind of soup – Kale White Bean Orzo Soup

  3. Ohh, potatoe leek sounds yummy. I like pumpkin and lentils too. Or simple mixed veggies in broth. Split pea soup. My dads tomato soup.

    I generally like all of the soups. And I like the classics, this quiz was very right about that :)
