Living on an off-grid homestead can be challenging, especially when you rely on solar power and the sun seems to hide during most of the winter. Because we have an electric stove, there are many times during the dark winter months that I turn to cooking on our woodstove in my trusty cast iron dutch oven.
While that may sound horrible to those of you who live on the grid, honestly it’s pretty awesome and kind of reminiscent of camping.
Because of my unique cooking situation, I am always looking for new dutch oven recipes, especially soups (because soups are awesome for those cold dark winter months). I decided that I couldn’t keep these recipes to myself, and that I wanted to share the best of the best with all of you, in case you are looking for some new dutch oven soup recipes to make on your stove this winter, or even to try out on your next camping trip!

Best Dutch Oven Chili
Chili is a staple in my household. My husband absolutely LOVES chili, however, I am NOT a spicy fan (my husband once fed me a jalapeno as a joke, and I spent ten minutes hurling in the nearest bathroom).
So I have gone through many a chili recipe trying to find one that would work for both of us. I love how this recipe cooks down a chuck roast, and I can customize the original recipe to be not-so-spicy.
If you’re looking for a new chili recipe, I definitely encourage you to give this dutch oven chili recipe a try.
Dutch Oven Chicken and Dumplings Soup
Chicken and dumplings is a family favorite comfort food. My original chicken and dumplings recipe used canned biscuit dough, which to say the least, was not entirely healthy. It is also pretty inconvenient when you’re living off grid far from a grocery store.
I love this dutch oven chicken and dumplings soup recipe because it is made entirely from scratch, and it comes out AMAZING.
The first time my family tried this recipe, it quickly replace that old processed biscuit dough one. So if you’re looking for a chicken and dumplings recipe, give this one a try.
