This soup is filling enough for my husband, and it’s vegetarian, which I love. The couple who introduced us made it for us on a freezing night and we’ve been hooked ever since. —Cara McDonald, Winter Park, Colorado
Meet the Cook: Anytime you're looking for a way to use up your zucchini and squash, this recipe gives a different taste sensation. My husband really enjoys it -and, except for the zucchini, our two daughters, ages 7 and 3, do as well!

After reading the “Stone Soup” story, our Test Kitchen enjoyed concocting this version of the folktale classic. It’s chock-full of veggies and lots more ingredients…enough for everyone to bring something to add to the fun and flavor!
This squash soup is nicely flavored and tastes wonderful on cool October days. The combination of chili powder, cumin and cayenne pepper gives it just enough kick. You can make different kinds of spooky Halloween images with the sour cream! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Hannah Barringer of Loudon, Tennessee suggests serving this delicious and satisfying recipe with corn chips, cheese, sour cream, and a small salad. “To save time, purchase vegetables that have already been diced,” she adds.
This special recipe from my mother-in-law is one that I enjoy making as part of our fall meals. The soup is so pretty that it dresses up the table. We think it hits the spot on crisp evenings.
