Preparing homemade soup, of any kind, is a simple process.

If you are able to boil water, and chop veggies, you are a budding soup chef.

I mean it. It is that simple.

Cooking soup requires some very basic ingredients:

  • Soup stock (ready-made, or homemade)
  • Your favorite vegetables
  • Your favorite herbs
  • Pasta, rice , or other favorite grains
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Some soups might need additional flavor enhancers:

  • tomato paste
  • cheese
  • eggs
  • heavy cream, or milk
  • vinegar
  • lemon juice
  • wine

The reason soup is easy to prepare, is that you are able to alter its taste and texture, throughout the entire cooking process; unlike baking breads and pastries, or preparing main course dishes.

Did I convince you yet that you ARE able to prepare some yummy soup?

Next time I will show you how to make some soup stock, since it is very easy to prepare, and much cheaper than buying it ready-made.
