Hello Fall! I am so ready to cozy up with a warm bowl of soup and enjoy hot cocoa. I need my favorite throw blanket and a good book, and I ready to enjoy fall. It is time to relax after a busy summer and before the busyness of the holidays.

Serve an easy dessert for the perfect ending.

You can use a blender if you like to puree the soup instead of the immersion blender. However, the mixture has to be cool before using a blender.

Garnished Soup 

This soup is delicious plain, but I like to serve it with a selection of garnishes. My favorite garnishes (toppings) for this soup are pepitas, sour cream, cracked black pepper, and fresh parsley. 

The perfect accompaniment to serving the soup is fresh garlic bread (this is my favorite recipe).
