When fall rolls around, I'm always so ready--ready for the clothes, the blustering leaves and crispness in the air, and last but not least, the food. And vegan soup is always top of my list. After all, it's been three whole months since I've had it as a dinner option! So, the second the temperature drops below 65 degrees, it's soup city at my place.

Here are a handful of my favorite vegan soup recipes that are ready in an hour or less. (And for the record, the better part of those hours are just letting that pot o' yum heat up while you breathe in the savory aroma--not a bad way to spend an hour, right?)

1. Black Bean Taco Soup

Ready in 15 minutes. I always say that this is soup to cook when you don't feel like cooking. It's crazy easy and can be whipped up in a hurry.

2. Carrot Chile and Cilantro Soup

Ready in 1 hour. Garlic, cilantro, and chile paste are blended with cooked potatoes and carrots in this easy-to-make soup.

3. Creamy Poblano Chile and Red Pepper Soup

Ready in 40 minutes. Dried poblanos give this soup just enough heat, blended cashews give it its creaminess, and cooked potatoes give it a little umph.

4. Red Lentil Soup

Ready in 55 minutes. Coconut milk, peanut oil, and a handful of savory spices come together to make this top-rated vegan soup recipe.

5. Coconut Curry Soup

Ready in 1 hour. Cauliflower is cooked and blended with red curry, coconut milk, and cashews to make this creamy, hearty soup.

6. Creamy Corn Chowder

Ready in 1 hour. This low-fat, vegan version of a classic comfort food dish is great for a meal starter or as the main meal itself.

7. Celery and Carrot Soup

Ready in 35 minutes. This light, delicate soup with is seasoned with tarragon and onion, and makes a great first course to a fall meal.
