Fall and Winter: There's no better time to warm the heart, home, and belly with hearty and delicious soups. Vegetarian, or have vegetarians in your life? With more of us staying home this season, we've rounded up some of our favorite recipes from City Lifestyle's contributing editors coast to coast.

Jarrahdale Pumpkin Soup

"I like the ingredients in this soup, especially the Jarrahdale pumpkins. They have an unexpected melon aroma and flavor. And when it comes to Thanksgiving dishes, so many people think about pumpkins for sweets—this soup is a great savory option." —Vaughn Good, co-owner/chef, James Beard semifinalist, Fox and Pearl

"Cheesy" Broccoli Soup

"Fall in Bend means brisk and colorful walks through Drake or Shevlin Park that hopefully lead to a cozy soup waiting for you at home. Broccoli cheddar soup is an easy to prepare, one-pot type of soup. It has become a staple for my family during the colder months. You add all the ingredients and forget about it. It is homey, comforting, and the perfect healthy and reinvigorating meal for a cold or rainy day. I like chopping up crusty French bread into cubes and toasting them with a little bit of olive oil for fresh croutons to add on top."

Hearty Beef(less) Stew

"Hearty and healthy is the best combo. When my husband was craving a classic comfort stew, this recipe hit the spot and he didn’t miss the beef! It tastes unbelievably like a traditional beef stew but is entirely plant-based. At first, I was unsure how to get that deep beef flavor but was inspired to try and experimented until it came out just right. The combination of portobello mushrooms and liquid aminos (or soy sauce) had the effect I was seeking. Your kitchen and the whole house will smell amazing. May your family enjoy this 'beef' stew as much as mine does. (It goes perfectly with some crusty French bread.)"

Autumn Harvest Soup

"This comforting soup is perfect for a chilly fall day. The sweetness of the carrots and apple nicely balance the rich, earthy flavor of the beets. Roasting the vegetables first caramelizes them, bringing out their complex flavors. Curry and smoked paprika gives the soup a little kick. I also added miso for umami undertones and a dollop of Beaujolais wine for color and depth, but you can leave them out if you’d like. Feel free to try different root vegetables and adjust the seasonings to your taste. This is a healthy, nourishing soup."

Mushroom Soup with Marsala

"This is a mushroom lover's dream and is elegant enough to serve at a dinner party and the holidays. I used Portobello mushrooms instead of the button, but feel free to use both if you wish."

Hearty Minestrone Soup

"When the weather cools down, there is nothing quite like a nice warm bowl of soup to comfort the soul. These savory and hearty options serve as complete meals. Or pair them with a piece of crusty bread or a classic grilled cheese for the ultimate fall treat."

She said to give this hearty soup a unique touch by topping it with black pumpkin seed oil. Not only is it immensely delicious, but she said it also has countless health benefits!

Squash Bread Dumplings

"This dish is a delicious way to use squash in the fall, and it is such a comforting, yet different addition to any dinner. It's also great because it's easy to make, can be made ahead of time, and you can use up dry bread. Dumplings are a popular addition to many meals in Germany. This recipe allows for a lot of variation and creativity. Using squash makes this a delicious fall treat." —Chef Martin Heuser
