Prepare yourself for fall with some of our new healthy and hearty fall recipes and meals.

Cabbage and Carrot Soup
You can make this soup with crinkly Savoy cabbage, which is rich in beta-carotene.

Cabbage Patch Chili
Cabbage adds a slightly sweet note to conventional chili.

Classic Chili Con Carne (with Cornbread)
Slow-cooked beef and beans in a rich tomato sauce spiced with chilis and cumin make this an inviting meal on a cool autumn day. Warm, crumbly, moist cornbread studded with corn kernels and mild green chilis makes the perfect accompaniment.

Danish Potato Soup
Other vegetables and cream make this potato soup rich in flavour and texture.

Golden Autumn Soup
This soup uses the freshest, most beautiful fall produce.

Hearty Italian Chili
Here’s a traditional chili with Italian touches—spaghetti sauce, mushrooms and pepperoni.

Mediterranean Roasted Vegetable Soup
Roasting the onions, garlic, peppers, potatoes and zucchini caramelizes their natural sugars to bring out tantalizing sweetness. The pan juices, which contain minimal fat, are added to the soup so you won’t lose a drop of flavour.

Peppery Corn Soup
Hot Mexican jalapeños add bite to what otherwise would be a humdrum corn soup.

Tomato-Garlic Soup
Grandmothers often said garlic was good for what ails you, and we now know they were right. This soup uses 10 cloves, but because garlic mellows as it cooks, it has a mild, slightly sweet flavour.

Vegetable Soup with Dumplings
This is a scrumptious old-fashioned vegetable soup that will stick to the ribs and healthfully satisfy the biggest appetite.

Add some fresh bread to complete your hearty meal. Try our Crusty French Loaves, Multigrain Seeded Bread or Winter Squash Bread.
