Seasonal Soup & Salad Recipes ♥ October

Seasonal Soups & Salads for October, a monthly feature ♥ A Veggie Venture, now for autumn, with fresh vegetables and our favorite pantry ingredients.
Seasonal Soup and Salad recipes, ideas perfect for the month of October, all from A Veggie Venture's decade+ collection of 1000+ vegetable recipes. October's recipes are mostly veg(etari)an and call for easy-to-find ingredients. Find your October salad (and soup!) inspiration here ... (Readers from the Southern Hemisphere? Look for your spring vegetable soup and salad recipes in the April collection! I suspect you're the reason that the asparagus recipes are trending!)

About October's Recipe Collection

Have I told you about my nephew's not-yet-sent birth announcements? He's 27.
Have I told you that I still have a to-do list from 2008? I still plan hope to get to it, I really do. Seriously.
Anyone notice that October's soup and salad recipes are arriving in late October rather than the much-more-sensible early October as planned? Please forgive me. #RealLife

I'm working more hours than ever on A Veggie Venture and Kitchen Parade but somehow, each and every day, October's Soups & Salads only recently rose to the very top of my much-too-long priority list. Sigh. More #RealLife

So I might have just skipped October's recipes or even waited until next October. But there's a super-important reason to put out this seasonal list, even late in the month.

It's because ... this year-long effort is done!

An Entire Year of Seasonal Soup & Salad Recipes? It's COMPLETE!
