Fabulous Fall Flavors are Here

Riverscape Blog, Odenton, MD  Fall is here, and along with leaves turning crimson, and a nip in the air, a host of fall flavors from the kitchen awaits.

It’s that time of year when summer’s barbecues and picnics give way to the changing weather. As temperatures dip, the thought of a hearty stew or soup begins to sound like the perfect meal, and today, the Riverscape blog is prepared with some fall-themed recipes that are sure to hit the spot. Head on over to the one of the the Odenton, MA area’s farmers markets and pick up the fixins for some of these dishes*.

Creamy Potato Soup

This soup is made up  of potatoes, carrots, onions, and celery, awash in a creamy, cheesy, buttery sauce, with a splash of shredded carrots for a touch of color and a burst of flavor.

 

Cauliflower Soup

Combining the heartiness of a potato soup (without potatoes and their calories) this amazing cauliflower soup blends a variety of vegetables, simmered in chicken broth with a cream-based sauce for utter deliciousness.

 

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Taking fresh-steamed broccoli a step further, this recipe immerses it not only in a cheese sauce, but adds other veggies too. Filling and tasty, this soup will become a household favorite.

 

Clam Chowder

Follow the recipe as is for a basic chowder. If possible, use fresh clams instead of canned. For variety, we suggest adding crumbled bacon (about five strips), a can of creamed corn, and a dash of tabasco sauce, to heat things up.

 

Chicken Noodle Soup for a change from the cream-based soups, give this easy-to-make, homemade (including the noodles) chicken-noodle soup a try. The blend of flavors, combined with thick, hearty noodles, makes this a favorite on a crisp fall day.

 

And how could we write a blog about fall flavors without including that October staple, pumpkin, but in a soup?  Yes. Invite friends from our apartment community over for a fun evening of good food and conversation, and serve this creamy, savory, Pumpkin Soup** in small, hollowed-out pumpkins (or bread bowls if you are in a time crunch). However you serve it, enjoy!
