The weather has dropped a bit around here and I've got soups, stews and comfort foods on the brain. So I'm looking for some suggestions on the most tasty soups to make. So far my favorite is the AFR Arabian Lentil & Rice Soup, but I'm looking to mix it up, what are your favorites?

I love the Cauliflower Pesto Soup from AFR! Perfect for "almost" fall but not quite, with all that delicious basil.

Here's an old thread on this very subject; maybe it can be revived and this one can just be bundled in with it.

The ultimate in comfort food, IMHO. I feel happy just thinking about it.

Also, Three Sisters Corn Chowder from Robin Robertson's Vegetarian Meat and Potatoes Cookbook.

There's a sweet potato spinach soup made with peanut butter and canned tomatoes in Quick Fix Vegan that I love. It's perfect for cold weather. A variation can be found here:

http://www.happyhealthylonglife.com/happy_healthy_long_life/sweet-potato-spinach-soup.html

I usually make it with regular canned diced tomatoes and more chopped peanuts, though.

I cook a lot of soups and stews in this cold climate, so I have lots of favorites!

Parsnip soup from Color Me Vegan.
Glam chowder and meaty beany chili from Isa Does It.
Corn chowder from Vegan with a Vengeance.
Leek cassoulet with biscuits from Veganomicon.
Potato leek soup from 500 Vegan Dishes.
Roasted vegetable soup (made with rutabaga and with maple syrup added) and three-lentil dal from 1000 Vegan Recipes.
Onion soup from A Vegan Taste of France.
Jerusalem artichoke soup from A Vegan Taste of the Middle East.
Parsnip, coconut and cardamom soup from French-language Coco by Marie Laforêt.
Curry rice and sukiyaki from Japanese Cooking: Contemporary and Traditional.
Butternut squash soup from The Happy Cow Cookbook.
Creole red beans from The Inspired Vegan.
Hoppin' Jean Creole (I make it with wild rice) from Vegan Soul Kitchen.
Cashew curry from The Urban Vegan.
Polenta rancheros from Vegan Brunch (I say it counts as stew).
Cauliflower and parsley soup and Italian lentils from Vegan Italiano.
African curried black-eyed pea and coconut soup, Canadian split pea soup, Nigerian black-eyed pea stew and Colombian red beans from Vegan Beans from Around the World.
Chickpea curry and Tuscan bean stew from The Forks over Knives Cookbook.

I love this (unfortunately French-language and omni) book of soup recipes, easily veganized (note there exists another one with the same title and author, but different, not-so-good recipes):

I got the book "Soups On" by Mark Reinfeld for Christmas last year and although I probably never would have bought myself a soup book, it's actually alright and there's some nice recipes.

There's a "Mid East Chickpea Soup" which uses lots of chickpeas, spices, and tahini and it's so creamy and warming.

and a "Himalayan Dal" which has crunchy curried chickpeas on top as "croutons" which is lovely


I also love Vegan Richa's African Peanut Lentil Soup - the flavours go so well!

I made this "Samosa" soup the other day and the coconut milk is a great addition to make it super creamy.

And this is my recipe, but it's totally my go to "something quick and warming" recipe Borlotti Bean Soup.

This Baked Potato Soup with The Works is sooo easy and good.

I am obsessed with soup, so I am in love with this thread already.

I make tons of the porcini stew and also the pesto gnocchi soup from the PPK recipes section--they're absolute go-tos for delicious and satisfying.

I also love to make my own take on ramen--I get the rice noodle soup bowls from Trader Joe's but make them differently. I boil a cup of veg broth and a cup of soy milk, along with the flavoring packets, in a pot. Once it's boiling, I add the noodles and cook them for three minutes, then toss in some handfuls of corn and spinach to quickly soften. Pour it back in the bowl, mix in sambal oelek to taste, and top with chopped green onion. It's SUPER quick and easy, and comes out to be really cheap. I'll sometimes dice in some silken tofu (or non-silken, if I don't have silken in the cupboard). I find it really satisfying and filling too. It's a favorite on nights when I'm feeling overwhelmed, eating late, worn out, etc.

The Jamba Stew from Appetite for Reduction is so good! It's probably my favorite thing to do with butternut squash.

Also, Joanna's Lentil Soup from Yellow Rose Recipes is almost always in our freezer. I think she was working on putting all her recipes online so I hope it can still be found. It's so good!

I'm definitely feeling the soup-making urge for this weekend. Make loads of soup to eat for meals over the next week or two!

I've also been craving the cassoulet stew with biscuits cooked in from Veganomicon. I am pretty certain that's getting cooked tonight or tomorrow night!

Leek and bean cassoulet - one of my first recipes and one I still go back to semi regularly. Not as often since I started making the dilly stew from IDI because it is faster, but often enough. Also one of those recipes I'm not afraid to feed omnis.

So many excellent suggestions in this thread !

My new fav fall stew is the Celery, Chilli and Apple Stew by Olia Hercules. The recipe comes together fast with basic pantry items. You simmer celery, apple and new potatoes in a tomato broth spiced with cinnamon, chilli, molasses and tarragon. And don't forget to have a side of crusty bread to scoop the broth.

Tart, smooth apples work best - eg Granny Smith, Paula Red. And I usually go with 1 small mild red chilli instead of "2 large".

While the recipe recommends that you boil the potatoes separately, I just add a cup of water and steam them in the stew.

The recipe is on the Guardian website. It is in the middle of a bunch of non-vegan chilli recipes, so I won't post the actual link.

I wonder if celery can be subbed out of that? I don't like celery, do you think another vegetable, like fennel or a yellow pepper perhaps, would work?

This recipe is totally adaptable.

Both fennel and pepper would work. If you do use the pepper, just add it in later in the cooking process so it doesn't get too mushy.

I think what works in this recipe is the flavour combos of tomato, chilli, apple, cinnamon, molasses and tarragon.

Quick Red Posole, from Viva Vegan! because I can pick up a couple of peppers on my way home from work, chop everything, let the soup cook while I change out of my work clothes and switch my contact lenses out for glasses, eat dinner, and then have more delicious soup for lunch at work the next day. This soup never fails me.

I love the Potpie Stew with Sweet Potato Biscuits from AFR. Sometimes I add chickpeas or seitan to make it extra hearty and serve it with some roasted veggies on the side. It made me go buy a bunch of yellow split peas, which I'd never eaten before, and now I love adding them to all kinds of meals like curries and soups.

I keep getting hyperexcited at the local farmers market and buying too much corn, so I made a batch of this chowder last night. Which has only encouraged me to continue buying too much corn while it lasts.

I'm really into AFR's Arabian Lentil Rice Soup. Like. It's probably my favorite meal. I sometimes add tiny ribbons of kale if I'm feeling particularly "healthy."

The pesto gnocchi soup from the blog/IDI is magical, but expensive. It doesn't get made as much as I would like but it's SO YUMMY. I would grow my own damn basil plant if I didn't kill everything I touched. I haven't bothered making the pesto soup in AFR because it seems to be the same thing, but without the heartiness that makes the soup a meal.

I'm not a big stew person. Does chili count? (As the sandwich debate threads have shown, I have kind of weird views, but I usually see chili listed in stew sections. . .?) I love the chili from the Vegan Diner. So simple. So delicious. MMMMM.

I'm waiting for it to not be hot as balls and I will be all over these.
