Every year, as Summer ends, I sit down and start creating soup ideas for Fall. Is there anything easier and more comforting that a meal in one bowl. Throw all of your ingredients in a big pot, simmer and enjoy. I took a couple steps for this baby, but it was so worth it! Full of flavor and crazy healthy ingredients like ginger and bone broth and for a extra treat I added candied pumpkin seeds for a little sweetness and crunch.

I loved the way this turned out so much, I ate it for breakfast all week long. You can easily cook this in a stock pot on the stove top, but I have been having this obsession with my Instant Pot so I just couldn’t help myself. My advice is to start making some bone broth now and make your easy weeknight meals so simple. Who said healthy had to be hard? If you are a big fan of soup as much as I am, try out these recipes Tomato Basil soup or Spiced Butternut Squash soup perfect for Fall.
