Soup & Stew Recipes for Fall and Winter

One thing you'll notice throughout these recipes is a theme about preparing them in specific items. Three kitchen tools are handy with making soups and stews, and while they aren't necessary, they are a great addition to your kitchen.

  1. A quality Dutch oven is a perfect investment in your kitchen for many meals, but soups and stews specifically. I stand behind Lodge cast iron Dutch ovens and Amazon Basics Dutch ovens. You might also appreciate a bit higher priced option of the best of the best, Le Creuset Dutch oven.
  2. A slow cooker is a must in every kitchen. The Crock-Pot is the most common brand and the one I recommend, but you may find other options at more affordable prices.
  3. The last item is a bit more popular in recent years and is the Instant Pot. This counter top electric pressure cooker is handy for many reasons but is especially ideal for making soups and stews easier to prepare.
