A Dutch oven never goes out of style, whether you’re making mom’s chicken soup or that green goddess immune boosting soup you saw on TikTok. This classic pot not only accommodates gallons of broth, it maintains a constant heat to allow it to bubble away gently for hours. And its tight fitting lid keeps all that flavor inside. With my comprehensive collection of cozy soup recipes your Dutch oven will never cool down!

THE RIGHT PAN

My choice for a Dutch oven is enamel coated cast iron. You’ll want a pot that holds 5-7 quarts for a family of four. Light-colored interiors make it easier to monitor the browning or caramelization of food. When you’re sautéing or browning ingredients, it’s important to see the color changes, which can be challenging in a dark-colored pot.

Romanian Bacon Soup

Once sour cream is added to a soup it has to be treated gently and the Dutch oven is able to keep it at an even warm temperature so the cream doesn’t curdle.

Creamy Wild Rice Soup

The soup is easy to make, and actually improves overnight, so it’s convenient for those busy chilly nights. I let it cool, then pop the whole Dutch oven in the refrigerator and gently reheat on the stove the next day.
