I don’t know about you, but soup has a standing place at the top of my list of cold-weather comfort foods. And the creamier the soup, the better! I pull out my Dutch oven and make every creamy soup I can find — brothy puréed sweet potato chowder, chicken pot pie soup, and even some luxuriously creamy vegan soups are all fair game. Here are 20 of my favorite creamy soups to cozy up with this time of year. I hope they bring you comfort and warmth, too.
