It was the first week of Autumn-like weather here in LA, and I’ve obviously got soups on the brain, because the majority of the recipes I’ve been craving the last few weeks have all been of the bowl-and-spoon variety. So, have a quick peek into my soup-obsessed recipe box:

- I’m always looking for budget conscious recipes that are still tasty, since eating low-carb can be pretty expensive. I think this spicy coconut and pumpkin soup recipe fits the bill! (Budget Bytes)

- On top of that one, I’ve also got my eye on several other pumpkin soups: Pumpkin and Shrimp Bisque and Roasted Pumpkin, Pancetta and Sage Soup (Closet Cooking), this hearty looking Spicy Pumpkin Soup (Simply Recipes)

- This Easy Cream of Mushroom soup caught my eye, because not only is it going to be easy to convert to low carb, but it’s easily my favorite soup from childhood. Plus it’ll be a quick and easy fix for a rainy weeknight!(The Family Kitchen)

- Oktoberfest isn’t over yet, so this Cheddar Ale and Bratwurst soup got a star in my recipe folder. The fact that it’s a crockpot recipe gives it extra stars! I think I would try to thicken this naturally (without flour), or add flaxseed meal. Plus I’ll swap turnips for potatoes to give it some bulk.(Baked By Rachel via FoodGawker)

- Roasted Cauliflower and Aged White Cheddar Soup gets points for being super low carb already! Plus I still have some of that lovely Aged Vermont White Cheddar from Cheese of the Week(ish) that I can use! (Closet Cooking)
