Soup season has officially started. The chill outside brings sweaters and soup pots to the fore, and there is arguably nothing more comforting than a big vat of soup simmering on the stove. Simple or complicated, creamy or spicy, you just can't go wrong with soup for autumn.

Here are 15 essential soups you should be making right now, from miso soup, to Italian wedding soup, and creamy curried cauliflower soup. You better believe you're going to put your Dutch oven to good use this season.
