SEVEN SECRETS FOR MAKING SOUPS
1-Make it Healthy not Heavy –
Soups are mostly water, don’t add too much butter or cream for texture, and use homemade stocks or fresh dairy products.
2- Add Aromatic Spices –
3-Salt in Layers –
Add salt less while cooking, taste before serving and add more if required.
4-Make it interesting by adding some Freshness –
Add a bit of something fresh right at the end like fresh herbs, fresh citrus juice, a dollop of cream or yogurt. A hit of something un-cooked and un-simmered will highlight the deep, delicious, melded flavors in the rest of the soup.
5–Garnish like a Pro
Think beyond chopped parsley and freshly ground black pepper, although they both make great but the best soup garnishes offer a contrasting flavor or texture to both compliment and highlight the soup. Sometimes grated vegetable or micro herbs are also brilliant.
6-Use the right pan or pot –
A large and heavy bottom pan is perfect for making soup. Powerful hand blender is also useful for mixing.
7-Boost up soup-
Add flex seeds or oats or grounded almonds for extra richness for soup. It may be tiny, but it’s mighty and full of Nutrition.
