Tips for Making The Perfect Soup
I make a lot of soup and I’ve learned a few helpful tips and tricks along the way!
- Choose a flavorful vegetable broth. I like to use Edward & Son’s “Not-chicken” boullion cubes which have a lot more flavor than typical boxed vegetable broth. You can also make homemade vegetable stock, if you prefer!
- Immersion blenders are extremely helpful when making blended soups. An immersion blender allows you to blend the soup right in the pot so you don’t have to transfer hot soup to a blender. I love using it for my tomato soup, butternut squash soup, and broccoli cheddar soup. It also allows you to blend it as much or as little as you like.
- I like using a large dutch oven which holds heat well and makes it easy to keep the soup warm on the stovetop.
Tips for Storing Leftover Soup
Here are a few tips for storing soup:
- Cool it down first: Before storing your soup, make sure it has cooled down to room temperature. If you try to put hot soup in the fridge or freezer, it can raise the temperature inside and compromise the safety of other food.
- Use airtight containers: Use containers with tight-fitting lids to store your soup. This will help to keep it fresh and prevent any spills or leaks. Glass or plastic containers with snap-on lids work well.
- Reheat properly: When you’re ready to eat your soup, be sure to reheat it thoroughly. Bring it to a rolling boil if it’s been stored in the fridge, or thaw it completely if it’s been stored in the freezer, before serving.
- Avoid freezing cream-based soup: it is not recommended freezing soup that has heavy cream in it because it will cause the soup to separate when it is reheated and could change the texture. For this recipe, I don’t recommending freezing the soups in this list.
