3 Steps for Simple Soups
February 4 is National Soup Day!  I LOVE soups and enjoy making them.  My family likes the recipes I create, which inspires me even more. Homemade soup, oranges, herbal tea and lots of water were my diet as I fought off an icky cold.  Let me share some tips with you because soup is a simple fast food and oh so healthy for your body and soul.

1.  Start with a good broth.  I make bone broth from turkey, ham, chicken or most recently a prime rib bone.  I freeze the broth and it is my liquid for soups.  I typically add water at a ratio of 2 broth to 1 water.  This give me a nice balance of nutrition and taste.

2.  Veggies, beans, rice, noodles.  Next I determine what veggies go well together.  I always add onions, garlic and carrots.  Cook until tender.

  • Poultry broth:  I love rice or noodles, celery, leeks, sweet potato, butternut squash
  • Ham broth:  I love beans!  Black beans, black eye peas, lentils, leeks, cabbage
  • Beef broth:  Veggies and barley is my go to here.  

3.  Spices, herbs & greens.  Have fun trying different flavors.  Cracked pepper, thyme, basil, turmeric, cumin, curry, are some of my basics.  Coriander, fennel, oregano are good to try.  Get creative and have fun!

Soup is so easy and quick.  No homemade bone broth?  Use broth from the store.  No time for prepping veggies?  Open a bag of frozen mixed veggies.  Add your favorite noodle, grain or bean to finish it off.  Let it simmer while you dust off the day’s activities and you’ll have dinner in just a few minutes.
