As a season, fall has a lot going for it: Sweaters, scarves and colorful leaves are just a few autumnal delights we look forward to every year. But everyone knows that the most important thing about fall is that it marks the beginning of the best time of year: soup season. We don’t care if it’s meaty, noodle-y, creamy or full of veggies—if it can be eaten with a spoon, we’re all in. Here are 45 fall soup recipes to inspire your own soup season.

It doesn’t get cuter (or more autumnal) than this. The itty-bitty pumpkins are just as easy to cook as any old squash, and their seeds do double-duty in the crunchy topping.
