Rich, creamy soups are a meal on their own, and this Ale, Caulifower, and White Cheddar Soup  from Catz in the Kitchen doesn’t disappoint. Serve it with beer, in a bread bowl — and this recipe makes enough for leftovers.

Perpetually Hungry brings us Three Onion French Onion Soup, and it’s absolutely bursting with flavor. Remember to take your time properly caramelizing the onions in order to maximize the richness of their flavor. (We’re not going to lie, we can never wait to taste that crusty, cheesy top.)

Butternut Squash and Red Lentil Curry soup from Season with Spice brings a bit of spice to your soup, and the lentils provide a punch of protein, making this soup a complete meal.

Tomato Basil Soup is a nutrient-dense soup that capitalizes on the flavor of summer tomatoes at any time of year. Clean Eats, Fast Feets adds a twist — Savory Parmesan Rosemary Granola, which adds a crunchy burst of flavor into each bite.

Apple, Parsnip, and Chestnut soup from Acorns & Custard is chockfull of holiday flavors, and it’s delicious served with a crusty bread. Chestnuts roasted on an open fire optional — canned and pre-peeled taste just as good!

Eat Drink Cook knows nothing says comfort food like warm, cozy chicken soup. This Chicken and Vegetable Broth is filled with veggies, chunks of chicken, and winter cheer.

Bite Me More offers Butternut Squash Soup with Crunchy Maple Croutons, a satisfying soup that combines the flavors of squash and apples with just a touch of maple. You’ll be surprised at how simple — and delicious — the maple croutons are, and they really add something special to the soup.

Culinary Therapy suggests Fall Harvest Carrot soup for chilly fall and winter months. Carrots deliver a healthy dose of Vitamin A, and the spices and coconut aid in digestion, keeping your tummy healthy all winter long.

Start this Potato Leek Soup from Just a Little Bit of Bacon in your slow cooker in the morning, and dinner will cook itself. A quick spin with a stick blender — or a regular blender if you prefer — and this thick, cheesy homestyle soup will be amazing on a winter night.

It might be getting closer to winter, but Yolo-Sole doesn’t want you to neglect your greens. Try the Healthy & Spicy Leafy Greens Soup; not only does it provide the nutrition from the leafy greens, it’s a fabulous way to use up the produce in your crisper before it goes bad.

My Bare Cupboard adapted a recipe for Dandan Noodles to add a little kick to the original recipe. We love that she explains her modifications but includes the original recipe in case you want to try both.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Cumin soup from Curry Trail is one of those amazing recipes we’d never be able to dream up ourselves. It’s comfort and spice and a warm way to fight against the cold, all in one bowl.

Not only does Fresh Fit Foodie offer a delicious recipe for Winter Squash Soup, she adds instructions about how to properly cut butternut squash. There’s nothing more frustrating than bringing something home from the grocery store and not being sure exactly how to get to all the tastiness inside the thick skin.

The Broccoli Soup with Crunchy Seed and Nut Topping from What Makes Great is amazing, in part because of the combination of flavors, and in part because its a soup that offers the health benefits of broccoli without depending on cream. Comfort foods can be dairy-free, too!

Miss Hangrypants gives classic tomato soup a kick with her Spicy Tomato Soup. Whether you’re serving it with your favorite grilled cheese or on its own, this soup will warm up your day.

If you want to change up your Taco Tuesday routine — or add more Mexican flavor to your weekly menu, try the Chicken Enchilada Soup from Holly’s Cheat Day. The simple recipe can be adjusted for more or less spice, depending on how your family likes it.
