There are so many things to love about this time of year. Yes, there are cozy blankets and flickering fires, but there are also the flavors of Fall: the crunch of toasted nuts, the smell of warming spices, the cornucopia of end-of-year gourd vegetables. Since there's so much we love about Autumn eats, we've compiled all of our favorites from this time of year into one place, so you can enjoy them as much as we do. Sit down with a pumpkin spice latte [1], then keep clicking to come up with the perfect combo for tonight's dinner. Jump ahead to:

Spiced Carrot Soup

For loads of texture and flavor contrast, garnish this creamy carrot soup [6] with spiced chickpeas, tahini-lemon sauce, dukkah, and parsley.

Curried Pumpkin Soup

This particular pumpkin soup [17] has an Indian twist with the addition of ginger, curry powder, and coconut milk; however, it is not overwhelmingly spicy or palate-burning. Add toasted pumpkin seeds for a crunchy topping.
