• Did you know that if you want to add vegetables to the soup you are making, they will taste so much better if you sauté them first in a little butter. Even though it's a little bit more work, it's worth the extra effort. shopping list
  • What happens when you boil the soup too long? The soup ends up losing its color. shopping list
  • I burned my soup once. Have you ever done that? Here's a great tip to fix that. Take the liquid part of your soup and pour it into a new, clean pan. Then, add these ingredients: mustard, curry powder, chutney, or your one other of your favorite flavors. Quantities are always to taste and you'll be amazed at how this tip really works! shopping list
  • Here's one of my all time favorite soup tips. Every made soup that was too salty tasting? All you need to do is place a raw potato into your soup pot and simmer it with the soup for about 15 minutes. Not only does the potato slice absorb the extra salt, but as an added snack for the cook, it also absorbs all that flavor and becomes a fantastic taste treat! shopping list
  • Need your soup to be thicker? - Just sprinkle a little bit of instant mashed potato and stir in to thicken the soup. Carefully continue adding the instant potatoes until you get the consistency that makes you happy. shopping list
  • In a hurry and need to use canned broth instead of homemade? Give it a little extra flavor by taking your leftover chicken or meat bones and simmering it in the broth. Simmer for about 15 minutes. Then, strain the liquid and use the newly-flavored broth for your soup. This is a fantastic way to spice up the tinny flavor of canned broth and make it taste like its homemade. shopping list
  • Guess what a great resource a grocery store is for ready-to-use ingredients! Simply make a visit to the salad bar (most large grocery chains have them now,) and gather up some of the pre-cut vegetables, cooked shrimp, and chicken or meat. How easy is that? shopping list
  • If you have any leftovers of the pasta you cooked the night before, or even meat and vegetables - use them for instant nutritious substance for your soup. If your left over vegetables have already been cooked, simply puree them and use it as a thickener. Deeeelish! shopping list
