Fall Soups Are Now In Season — Here Are Our 7 Favorites To Make

You know it’s autumn when you start craving a nice, steaming bowl of soup. We adore soup and might even go so far as to call ourselves connoi-soupers. Okay, maybe not that far, but you get the point. Here are some of our favorite soups that will have you cozy all fall long.


Pressure Cooker Sausage Soup 

Thanks to Typical Mom for this recipe!

fall soup


  • 1 lb. of sausage

  • ½ an onion (diced)

  • 16 oz. of Northern beans (dry or canned)

  • 6 cups of water 

  • 4 cups of chicken broth

  • 28 oz. of crushed tomatoes

  • 1 Tbsp of garlic

  • 1 tsp of oregano

  • ¼ tsp of salt

  • ½ cup of parmesan cheese

  • 3 cups of kale


1. If you’re using the dry Northern beans, put them in your Instant Pot with 6 cups of water and set it to the bean setting for 60 minutes. “Quick release,” drain, and set aside. If you’re using canned beans you can skip this step.

2. Set your pressure cooker to “sauté” and add some olive oil, sausage, and diced onion to the pot. Cook until the sausage is no longer pink, then turn the pot off. 

3. Add spices and stir everything together, then pour in the can of crushed tomatoes, beans, and chicken broth. Continue to stir the mixture.  

4. Cut the stems off the fresh kale and cut them into chunks. Add them to the mixture as well.  

5. Put the mixture into the pressure cooker and push it down into the liquid. Gently mix it until it’s submerged. Close the lid and steam valve. 

6. Set the Instant Pot to high pressure for 10 minutes. 

7. “Quick release” and serve with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
