As the weather comes to a steady cool, we can’t think of a better way to warm up, than with a hearty bowl of soup. So we rounded up a few of our favorite blends (plus the mouthwatering toppings that go along!) to inspire your next dinner party or fete. Take a look!

AT THE BAR – THE BASE

tomato soup An elevated take on a classic favorite, with savory touches of basil and roasted tomatoes.

rye’s red chili An inspired version of a Kansas City-style, pulled-pork chili, with bacon, ale, and plenty of spice.

moroccan butternut squash and goat cheese soup A hearty blend of sweet butternut squash with the exotic flavors of Morocco, and a mouthwatering coconut cream garnish you won’t want to miss.

celery root and carrot soup This veggie-friendly dish is light and creamy, with a refreshing hint of sweet ginger.
