Cream of Mushroom Soup in a Bowl

They’re the ultimate hug in a mug (or boost in a bowl). From dreamy sweet potato to thick lentil, each is a nourishing yet tasty meal. 

Vegetarians will love the complex flavors of spinach and artichoke soup, 15 bean soup, or Irish parsnips.

Carnivores can sink their spoon into lobster bisque, chicken gnocchi, or the ridiculously tempting creamy Reuben soup.

And just because these are creamy doesn’t mean they’re dangerous for your diet.

There are plenty of dairy-free options (using potatoes, cauliflower, or non-dairy milk) and some low-fat broths, too.

Whatever you’re feeling, there’s a soup to match your mood on this list of 30 crazy good dishes.

Chicken Gnocchi Soup

1. Chicken Gnocchi Soup 

Bring Olive Garden’s yummy chicken gnocchi soup right to your own kitchen with this amazing copycat recipe.

It’s full of restaurant flavor but made with healthy homemade ingredients. 

Chunks of carrot, celery, spinach, and tender chicken are simmered in a creamy broth.

The magic ingredient, however, is the soft pillowy potato gnocchi. You might make a mess slurping these up, but it’s well worth a few spills.

2. Creamy Tomato Soup

You won’t believe this decadent and creamy tomato soup is vegan, but it is!

Made with tomatoes, garlic, onion, red pepper, and fresh thyme, you won’t even miss the dairy.

Why? Because chickpeas do the work instead! Blended into the tomato puree, they add a thick texture and creamy taste.

3. Cream of Mushroom Soup

5. Creamy Onion Soup

Some people like their onion soup in a clear broth. Those people have clearly never tried this mind-blowing creamy version.

Yellow onions are sauteed in white wine before being simmered in broth and thickened with a flour roux. 

Worcestershire sauce and thyme add plenty of amazing flavor while heavy cream brings a subtle richness to this hearty bowl.

Clam Chowder

6. New England Clam Chowder

Salty, savory, and creamy, there’s nothing like a bowl of clam chowder on a cold night.

A dash of tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne add tangy notes that save it from becoming too rich.

I could eat this delectable dish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

It’s also gluten-free, and you can easily make it dairy-free for vegan friends by replacing the butter with cashew paste.

If you had a ham roast for your Sunday dinner, keep the leftovers and dump them in the pot for this tasty Monday meal.

Popular in Asia, lentil soups are extremely nourishing and economical.

This chunky stew is a little like a lentil minestrone. It’s packed with vegetables, beans, herbs, and spices.

21. Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

This recipe is a lighter version of classic chicken noodle soup, made with zero cream but packed with flavor.

You may not be hitting all the food groups, but what’s life without a little dietary hiccup once in a while?!

27. Creamy Reuben Soup
