The aroma of soup simmering on the stove is always welcome as fall weather officially becomes crisp & cool. It’s called “comfort food” for a reason, and fall is the perfect time to warm up with a bowl of brewed goodness. Your Heinen’s Deli Department is full of seasonal favorites combining veggies, meat, and (occasionally) fruit.
Try these great pairing recommendations, as well as a recipe for a made-from-scratch soup:
