A great vegetarian soup recipe not only helps you feel good, but it also increases your appetite for the main meal.
It’s not really difficult to make vegetarian soups, you just need to follow a few basic steps to make them. To start you just have to use garlic, onion, other vegetables like spinach, beans, peas, cabbage. Now add vegetable broth or soup broth and other spices that can help you add your desired flavors. If you want to make a cold soup, add fruits like watermelon or tomatoes.
Sometimes if green onions are also added, celery along with onions, it will make a big difference in taste. If you add a little more herbs and spices like bell peppers, with oregano and rosemary blends, you get such a flavorful flavor that everyone in your home will enjoy. It is recommended to add an adequate amount of spices, as too many are not good for health.
The secret behind making a tasty vegetarian soup recipe includes one with good texture. However, the texture of a soup can be improved simply by thickening the soup. Oriental cooks generally use a secret item in their soup recipes which is flour or cornstarch which thickens the recipe without using milk.
The addition of cornstarch adds more texture or thickness to your soup. You just need to mix the cornstarch with some warm water and then pour the mixture while constantly stirring it into the soup, this process helps to thicken it.
The great thing about soups is that they can be made very well ahead of time and stored in the freezer and served the other day. One thing to keep in mind is that the soup should be allowed to cool properly first and then it should only be stored in the freezer. It should also be chilled so that excess oil from the soup is properly removed before freezing. Note that the container in which you will keep the soup has enough space so that the liquid inside the soup can easily expand.
However, non-vegetarian soups are made differently, meat is added here to make them more flavorful. Apart from using spices, soy sauce with pepper and onion is also added to give it an extra touch of flavor.
The much needed protein content in vegetarian soups are beans, chickpeas, green peas which help add flavor to your vegetarian soup recipe and are also a good substitute for meat.
