Nothing says comfort food like a big pot of soup.

And while there are endless stove-top recipes, there’s something especially satisfying about Dutch oven soups. 

Perhaps it’s the fresh and filling ingredients or the fact they’re slow-cooked, allowing the flavors to marry.

Whatever the reason, these Dutch oven soup recipes hit the spot every time.

So, let’s get right into it because I’m hungry already!

40 Heart Dutch Oven Soups to Try in 2022

1. Vegetable Beef Soup

There’s nothing quite like a hearty bowl of soup on a cold winter day. And this vegetable beef soup is the perfect way to warm up from the inside out.

The key to this soup is in the combination of flavors. I’m talking onions, garlic, Italian seasonings, thyme, beef broth, and more.

2. Dutch Oven Tortellini Soup with Sausage

Thanks to the combination of Italian sausage, garlic, diced tomatoes, and tortellini, this soup is a whole meal in one.

The sausage adds a touch of spice, while the garlic and tomatoes provide refreshing acidity.

Serve it with a side of crusty bread for dipping. Yum!

3. Lemon Orzo Chicken Soup

This soup is hearty enough to enjoy for dinner but light enough that you don’t have to unbutton your pants after eating it. 

The bright lemon flavor cuts through the rich chicken broth beautifully, while the orzo adds a much-needed bite.

Meanwhile, there’s satisfying chunks of carrot and shredded chicken in every spoonful!

4. Classic Minestrone Soup

Looking for a hearty yet healthy soup recipe? You just found it!

Packed with veggies, beans, and pasta, it’s a terrific meal for a cold winter day. And there are endless variations to choose from.

Just mix and match your favorite veggies, beans, and pasta until you find the perfect combination. 

5. Loaded Potato Soup

As the name suggests, this dish is loaded with good stuff! I’m talking potatoes, bacon, cheese, and green onions.

It’s super filling, with a light and luxuriously creamy texture.

You’ll need to use starchy potatoes, so they break down and thicken the soup as it cooks.

Try adding some smoked cheese for a little extra flavor. Delish!

6. Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

Tomatoes and basil go hand in hand. But then you add thyme? It’s a whole new ball game!

This soup is herby, fragrant, bright, and wonderfully refreshing.

In fact, it’s so good, you’ll want to make a double batch so you can have leftovers for lunch the next day.

Serve it with some crusty bread for dipping. Or, better yet, a crunchy grilled cheese sandwich!

7. Olive Garden Chicken Gnocchi Soup

Flavored with a blend of herbs, including thyme, this Olive Garden copycat is savory and slightly earthy.

It’s also creamy, hearty, and jam-packed with tender and chewy gnocchi.

Try roasting or pan-frying the gnocchi in garlic butter to make this extra special. That way, they get a nice golden edge.

8. Italian Sausage and Ravioli Soup

Wonderfully warming and deeply satisfying, this Italian sausage and ravioli soup is just what you need after a long day out in the cold.

It’s rich and savory, with plenty of delicious sausage and chewy ravioli.

Plus, there’s a touch of garlic and oregano in the mix for a tantalizing Mediterranean flavor. 

9. Chipotle Black Bean Soup

Black bean soup may not be a looker, but you can’t deny those flavors.

Black beans are packed with protein and fiber, and they bring an excellent earthy base to the dish.

But it’s the smoky paprika and warming cumin and chili powder that’ll leave you wanting more.

Add a dash of lime juice to cut through the richness, and you’ll soon be in soup heaven.

10. Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Like tomato soup, roasted red pepper soup is incredibly vibrant and packs quite a punch in the flavor department.

It’s a little smoky and slightly less acidic than tomato soup, but it’s just as warm and addictive with grilled cheese on the side.

For an extra-special touch, garnish it with a sprig of rosemary or thyme, and serve it with a crusty baguette.

11. Julia Child’s French Onion Soup

Are you in the mood for a delicious, comforting soup that is sure to please? Then look no further than this recipe.

The Dutch oven was practically made for French onion soup!

You’ll need to caramelize the onions, then make the soup in the same pot. That way, you don’t miss out on any of that flavor.

Beef broth is essential for the depth of flavor here, and you’ll also need two kinds of cheese on top.

This combination creates a perfect balance of flavors that will make you weak in the knees.

12. Lasagna Soup

Lasagna soup. It’s like lasagna… but in soup form!

And in my opinion, it’s even better than the traditional dish because it takes half the time to prep!

So instead of making a bunch of layers and painstakingly stacking them in a baking dish, just toss them in a Dutch oven and watch the magic happen.

Homemade 15 Bean Soup with Cornbread

13. Ham 15 Bean Soup

Featuring 15 different beans and smoky, meaty ham hocks, this soup is the stuff of legends.

Before you panic, you don’t need to hunt down 15 kinds of beans. Instead, you’ll just need to buy 15 bean soup mix (or Cajun 15 bean soup mix if you like it spicy).

From there, it just needs a little patience.

The beans need at least an hour in the pot. Then the ham hocks need about two hours until they’re tender.

It’s more than worth it, though – I swear!

14. Cream of Asparagus Soup (with Milk)

This soup is a fabulous way to show off the unique flavor of asparagus.

It’s got a subtle bitterness with plenty of green goodness, but it’s offset just right by the creamy milk.

You’ll love the silky texture. And the fact it’s basically a whole portion (if not two!) of veggies is just a bonus!

15. Lemon Rice and Chicken Soup (Avgolemono Soup)

Bring the fresh flavors of Greece to your dinner table with this fantastic lemon and chicken soup.

Avgolemono is a tasty Greek dish that combines the tartness of lemon with the savory flavors of chicken and rice.

It’s simple to make and offers a beautiful balance of sweet, sour, and savory.

16. Dutch Oven Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken noodle soup can often be a little lackluster. But this one is overflowing with hearty ingredients.

The broth is bold and rich in flavor, and the vegetables add a nice touch of sweetness.

As for the rest? There’s enough noodles and chicken to keep you going all day long.

Garnish the soup with fresh parsley for a beautiful touch of color. 

17. Cabbage Soup

Cabbage soup is one of those recipes that sounds kind of meh but turns out ah-mazing!

One bowl is enough to fill you up, but you won’t feel weighed down and sluggish when you’re done.

Better yet, you can pretty much throw whatever you want into the pot, and it’ll taste good.

That makes it ideal for any leftovers you have hanging around!

18. Cream of Mushroom Soup

Something about a steaming bowl of creamy mushroom soup on a cold winter day just hits the spot.

And this recipe is the perfect blend of earthy, savory, and rich flavors.

Plus, you can add any protein you like if you want some extra energy. I like cooked chicken, but pork and tofu are super tasty too.

19. The Yummiest Vegetable Soup

This really is the yummiest vegetable soup recipe you’ll ever try. I’m not exaggerating – it’s seriously good.

Easy to make, bright, fresh, and flavorful, it’s the whole package.

There’s sweet carrots, creamy potatoes, acidic tomatoes, and more, all in one flawlessly balanced dish.

And you can go ahead and throw in any veggies you like. I think root veggies work really well, as do peppers and mushrooms.

20. Thai Chicken Soup with Coconut Milk (Tom Kha Gai)

What do you get when you combine sweet and creamy coconut milk with spicy red curry paste and zesty lime juice?

A rich, luxurious, and silky broth that’s simply to die for.

So forget the usual chicken noodle and try this stunning Thai soup. It won’t disappoint.

21. Carrot Ginger Soup

Carrot soup might not sound like the most exciting dish in the world, but this particular recipe is a notch above the rest.

You’ll add ginger to the mix, giving it a fuller flavor with a nice bit of heat.

It’s sweet, creamy, and begging for some bread on the side.

22. Vegetable and Lamb Soup

Lamb is an incredibly unique meat with plenty of grassy notes and robust flavor. And in this soup, it’s tender, juicy, and melt-in-your-mouth amazing.

Between the simple vegetable broth, fork-tender lamb, and herby goodness, this one is a bit indulgent and best served for Sunday lunch.

That said, it’s so good, you’ll want it every day.

23. Italian Sausage Butternut Squash Soup

Nutrient-rich and brimming with fresh veggies, salty sausage, and a touch of sweetness, this soup is a must-make.

I like to roast the squash first to add a nice caramelized note to the soup. But that’s optional.

It’ll be just as yummy either way.

24. Italian White Bean Soup – Gluten & Dairy Free

This Italian soup is the perfect combination of healthy and flavorful.

It’s packed with protein and fiber, but it’s also got a delicious Tuscan flavor that’ll send your tastebuds on a European vacation.

Aromatic rosemary takes everything up a notch, creating a truly delightful gastronomic experience.

25. Houston’s Canadian Cheese Soup

I know what you’re thinking: that’s not soup – that’s queso dip!

And to be honest, you’re not far off. This soup is overflowing with cheese, and it’s insanely rich and thick.

But it’s lightened up with chicken broth and half and half to ensure it’s not too thick.

It starts with the holy trinity of soup-making: carrots, onions, and celery. And there’s a generous portion of cheese.

This isn’t for anyone who’s watching their waist. But it sure is dreamy.

26. Hearty Ground Turkey Soup with Vegetables

A lot of these soups feature beef, sausage, and chicken. But what about the other light meat: turkey!

Turkey is super lean but just as tasty as chicken. And in this soup, you’ll use ground turkey for a hearty protein boost.

Gluten- and dairy-free, this is great for anyone with allergies. And hey, leave out the turkey and add some tofu crumbles if you want it totally vegan.

It’s up to you!

27. Potato and Salmon Soup

With only a few simple ingredients, this meal is effortless to whip up on a busy weeknight.

The key to making it extra flavorful is to cook the potatoes until they’re nice and creamy. This gives the soup body and depth of flavor.

You better write this recipe down because I guarantee you’ll want it again.

28. Pumpkin Soup with Sausage and Black Beans

Pumpkin soup bursting with fall flavor and it’s gluten and dairy free? Sign me up!

From the sausage and black beans to the cumin and curry powder, this soup is textural, warming, and deliciously meaty.

In fact, it’s more like pumpkin and sausage chili, and I’m so here for it!

29. Thai Coconut Curry Chicken Soup

If you’re in the mood for something comforting and flavorful, this Thai coconut curry soup is just the ticket.

It’s rich and creamy with just enough fresh and zesty flavor to ensure it’s not too spicy.

Though you can always adjust the spice levels if you want to clear out your sinuses.

30. Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken tortilla soup is like the grown-up version of chicken noodle.

The latter is excellent for kids and when you’re sick, but if you want something with a kick, you gotta make chicken tortilla soup.

Cumin and chili powder add an extra kick of flavor that will wake up your taste buds, while the crunchy corn helps to balance out the spice.

31. Rustic Tofu Wild Rice Soup

Packed with protein-rich tofu, hearty wild rice, and plenty of vegetables, this soup is sure to stick to your ribs.

The wild rice provides a nutty flavor, while the tofu adds a creamy texture.

Meanwhile, the mushrooms are wonderfully earthy and meaty. Feel free to add chicken, but honestly, you won’t miss it one bit!

32. Split Pea Soup with Ham

Here’s another soup that’s not a stunner in the looks department. That green hue leaves a lot to be desired.

But even if you think you hate split pea soup, I can’t recommend this recipe enough!

It’s nothing like the version we had as kids. Instead, it’s bright, tasty, and deliciously meaty.

Add some bread on the side, and you might just reach for seconds.

33. Zucchini Soup

There’s so much zucchini in this soup, you can feel good about each and every spoonful.

It’s slightly sweet with a nice note of nutty, salty goodness from the Parmesan cheese.

Want it vegan? Use dairy-free butter and milk, and add nutritional yeast instead of cheese. Pretty easy, huh?

34. Creamy Roasted Pumpkin Soup

On the hunt for a show-stopping soup loaded with autumn flavors? You can’t beat this roasted pumpkin dish!

Roasting the veg gives it a slightly smoky flavor while also drawing out the natural sweetness.

You’ll also add maple syrup and coconut milk to keep things creamy and balanced.

35. Loaded Cauliflower Soup

Great as a main course or side dish, this low-carb soup is just like the loaded potato soup above.

Of course, the only real difference is the use of keto-approved cauliflower!

It’s still creamy, hearty, and addictive, thanks to the bacon, chicken broth, and cheddar cheese.

It’s just a little lighter. Not bad, amirite?

Thai Shrimp Soup

36. Thai Shrimp Soup

The best part about this soup is that it can be easily adapted to your tastes.

So, if you like soups a little spicy, go ahead and add some chili peppers. And if you prefer a more mellow flavor, reduce the amount of curry paste.

However you make it, this yummy and unique soup is sure to please. 

37. Curried Carrot Soup

Did you like the idea of carrot and ginger soup but found yourself wishing it had more oomph? Then this recipe is for you!

It’s bright and sweet, like the recipe above. But it’s also got a kick of heat from the curry spices.

And don’t worry, there’s still coconut milk to mellow it out.

38. Beer Cheese Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Tired of the same old chicken noodle and veggie-beef soups? Then this dish is just what you need!

The beer is vibrant, refreshing, and not boozy at all. Instead, it only provides flavor, which can be bitter or mellow, depending on what you choose.

And the roasted broccoli is such a nice touch with the cheddar cheese.

Trust me, this soup is so good, you’ll be craving it all winter long! 

39. Leftover Turkey Tortilla Soup

Need an easy way to use those holiday leftovers? Try this turkey soup!

It’s herby, meaty, and full of bold flavors.

Serve with a side of bread for dipping, and you’ve got a delicious and satisfying meal. Bon appetite!

40. Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Chicken and wild rice soup is one of my all-time faves, and what I always order when it’s on the menu at Panera.

It’s creamy, chewy, meaty, and oh-so-comforting. Plus, it’s packed with vegetables, so it’s one helluva nutrient-rich meal.

This soup can be served as a main course or a side dish. Either way, you’ll want seconds.
