Soups,

Soups

A good soup is filling, warming and is economical to make. Some soups take some time to cook while others are quick to cook.

Barley is used to thicken mutton broth and goes well with a beef soup. While rice goes well with chicken soups as does noodles, spaghetti and macaroni.

When tender vegetables are used the stock should be light then cooked for only 20 minutes.

Use cream to enrich seafood and tomato soups. In deed a little dash of cream or sour cream can lift many soups. While a dash of sherry in other soups enhances the flavour.

Not all soups are made from previously prepared stock.
