Sara Solomon the Feisty Foodie.

In the last hour, as we do on a Tuesday the Feisty Foodie (Sara Solomon) joins us for a chat about food. Today the art of a good soup.

I love making soups for my kids because it’s a great way to get them to eat veggies!

  • It’s souper easy!
  • Use whatever vegetables you have on hand
    • TIP: Make sure you cut them to be around the same size, so they cook evenly
    • Take a shortcut and use a pre-made broth (ideally low sodium)
  • Making broth is easy, just use your veggie scraps!
  • Stocks and broths can be frozen
  • Great tip: stocks can be frozen in ice cube trays and be used for baby food or to make sauces
  • A great risotto starts off with a great broth!
  • Use a hand emersion blender, cuisinart or blender
  • Don’t blend everything too much, always reserve some liquid and some veggies for texture, otherwise it was end up too smooth and eat like baby food
  • Depth of flavour, layers or flavour
  • Texture – of the soup, plus think about garnish! (something crunchy, creamy?, gooey?)
