I use [1] dnscrypt-proxy which is a daemon listening on localhost port 53 and 
encrypting all DNS queries in HTTPS.

FIY there is also DoT (DNS over TLS) which also encrypts the DNS queries though 
directly using TLS not within an HTTPS protocol.

Both solutions have their pros and cons. Duckduckgo is your friend.

Hope it helps,
