No Croutons Required - The Winner and October's Challenge

The winning entry for the September fruit soup and salad challenge is a feast for the eyes and palate. Srimathi of Five Minute Wonders came out ahead of some tough competition with this delightful and unique Spicy Fruit Salad. Congratulations to Srimathi!

I will be hosting the October edition of No Croutons Required. Undecided until the last day of this month what the challenge should be, I found my thoughts kept returning to the idea of a warming bowl of soup to ease the Fall chills. So, with the soup season upon us, I'm asking for hearty vegetarian soups. The idea is to make a bowl of soup that would essentially be filling and satisfying enough to serve as a meal in itself. For a recap of the submission guidelines, see here.

Congrats to Srimathi for that beautiful entry last month! Meal-in-a-bowl soups suit me just fine with this cooler weather coming on. Now, on to the soup!
