Welcoming Soup Season with 8 Must-Make Fall Soups

Hello, fellow ghee lovers! Summer is officially winding down and fall is just around the corner, which means cooler days, chillier nights, and heartier meals. Let us be the first to officially welcome the beginning of soup season! It’s truly one of the best times of year, and we couldn’t be more excited to round up some incredible recipes for you to utilize all fall and winter long. 

Get out your sweaters, big pots, and ladles -- we’re doing a deep dive into some truly delicious soups! Enjoy, and happy cooking! 


Turmeric Chicken Soup by @castiron_keto 

The first thing that typically comes to mind when people think of soup is Chicken Noodle. This recipe isn’t quite that (it doesn’t contain noodles), but what it lacks in pastaful goodness it makes up for in flavor! This recipe calls for ghee (so it’s already a winner), but we thought we’d up the turmeric ante by using 4th & Heart Turmeric ghee for added nutritional value and flavor! This soup is packed with nutrients, yummy aromatics, and hearty chicken that will keep you full and happy all season long. 


Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Soup by @rachaelsgoodeats

Traditional tomato soup just got an adrenaline shot to the sternum with this flavor-packed, updated version! Roasting red peppers alongside tomatoes and other aromatics turns the volume WAY up, giving us a truly amazing, new and improved tomato soup. This recipe calls for olive or avocado oil, but we recommend using our ghee oil or ghee to give this soup a buttery flavor note. No tomato soup is complete without grilled cheese, so save a little extra ghee for that, too! 


Creamy Whole30 Asparagus Soup by @whatgreatgrandmaate 

Asparagus sometimes gets a bad rap, but we at 4th & Heart are totally crazy about it! It’s delicious, packed with vitamins and nutrients, and available all year round. What’s not to love? This soup is not only absolutely delicious and super easy to put together, but it’s also (deep breath) Whole30, Paleo, Low-Carb, AIP, and Vegan-friendly! The recipe calls for ghee, but we’re always proponents of upping the flavor by subbing in any of our flavored ghees, like Garlic, Turmeric, and Himalayan Salt. If you’re not an asparagus fan, you’re about to be! 


Thai Shrimp Soup by @paleorunningmomma 

Thai curry is (unofficially) the eighth wonder of the world, so combining that with shrimp and turning it into a soup is, to us, a slam dunk. Like most Thai food, this soup is immensely flavorful -- once you make it, it’ll become your new favorite! Instead of avocado or olive oil (like the recipe calls for), we recommend using melted ghee or ghee oil. The recipe (which is Paleo, Whole30, and Keto, by the way) also calls for red curry paste; you can make your own, but you can also find it pre-made in most grocery stores or Asian markets. 


The Easiest Veggie-Loaded Lentil Soup by @rachlmansfield

Eating lentil soup on a chilly day feels like one big, warm hug. Lentils are a great source of fiber and potassium, and combined with soup and other vegetables, make for a healthy and delicious meal that’ll fill you right up! This recipe gets extra bonus points because it’s Vegan-friendly, too! You’ll want to sub in 4th & Heart ghee or ghee oil instead of the called-for olive or avocado oil, which will only make this recipe that much more yummy. 


Asian Chicken Soup by @thecleaneatingcouple

We know that we already have a chicken soup recipe on this roundup, but we simply can’t get enough of chicken soup! This soup is overflowing with vitamins and nutrients from a plethora of delicious vegetables, plus an incredible flavor profile thanks to all of the Asian ingredients. You can make it spicy or leave it mild, and the best part is that it’s Paleo, Keto, and Whole30 friendly. We recommend using 4th & Heart ghee oil in lieu of olive oil (our melted ghee might be too strong for this soup, but dealer’s choice!) This soup will become your newest obsession! 


Ribollita (Tuscan White Bean Soup) by @themediterraneandish

If you’ve never had ribollita before, your mind is about to be blown. It’s a classic Italian comfort food loaded with white beans, leafy greens, and other amazing veggies, making it as healthy as it is delizioso. The only change we’d make to this soup is to sub in some melted ghee (Garlic works really well here!) or ghee oil, and you’re off to the races! This soup also keeps really well, so feel free to double the batch and eat it all week long. 


Roasted Butternut Squash Soup by @cookieandkate

We couldn’t finish our recipe roundup without at least one butternut squash soup recipe, so here it is! This recipe prides itself on using butter instead of cream to achieve a silky, creamy texture, so we thought it’d be a perfect vehicle for 4th & Heart ghee! Feel free to use any of our ghee flavors for this recipe (Garlic and Turmeric ghee would go especially well), because the buttery, lactose-free flavor will propel this soup from great to excellent. What are you waiting for? Get cookin’!
