Few things are as comforting on a chilly fall day than a hot bowl of soup. From classic chicken noodle soup to creamy lentils, it makes for the ultimate warming, satisfying meal. We've rounded up our favorite hearty fall soup recipes to help you weather the colder months.

When it comes to comforting, warming soup, one dish instantly rises above the rest: chicken noodle soup. Good for more than just chasing away a cold, this simple classic is one of our cold-weather standbys. We like to cook wide, flat egg noodles straight in the aromatic broth—doing so both flavors the noodles and thickens the soup slightly as starch is released.

Other noodle soups make for great fall meals. Try our thick, stew-like chickpea and pasta soup with celery, carrot, and onion or rich beef broth with cheese-filled tortellini. For something extra meaty, try a light beef soup with hefty beef marrow dumplings.

Packed with fiber and protein, lentils give you the sustenance needed to make it through a cold fall. Our quick lentil soup with caraway and minted yogurt is an easy weeknight dinner. Combine lentils with butternut squash, a fall staple, to make a smooth, fragrant Middle Eastern staple to sop up with flatbread.
