The best way to keep yourself warm and healthy is have a bowl of soup. Here we tell you how to make the perfect soup.
1 Not too thick: Take care not to use excess of the thickening agent while preparing soup. Use it sparingly as this will improve the nutrition levels of the soup
2 Cook and serve: Serve the soup immediately once it is cooked. Reheating is not a great idea with soups.
3 Flavour matters: Use fresh seasonal ingredients to make great nourishing soups. In winters, you can use a dash of beet to add some flavour. Do not neglect the bread — a good combination can enhance the soup. Go for garlic-flavoured bread or a bread with cinnamon seasoning for the winters.
4 Tangy dash: A teaspoon of vinegar added to your soup can give it a strong flavour. But make sure to use white vinegar only and do not over do it.
5 Stock surprise: Adding stock to your soup will enhance its taste. If you are preparing a vegetarian soup, go for vegetable stock. While preparing non-vegetarian, prepare a stock that compliments the prime seasoning of your soup.
