soup-recipeOne of the most convenient means to please everyone is to spend a Saturday making two or three simple soup dishes. Portion the soups in individual or household size servings to freeze up for future quick-to-fix and tasty meals.

Below are a couple of very easy soup recipes to get you started. They are common dishes. Alternatives offer a different texture and body, as well as different flavors. Suggestion for alternative ingredients are okay for each of these simple soup dishes.

One uses a cream base while the various other utilizes a broth. You’ll be stunned to find exactly how a couple of small adjustments to each dish can offer lots of distinctly variations for these simple soup dishes.

EASY CLAM CHOWDER SOUP

Butter
Flour
Milk
Large potatoes
Clams with juice
Can corn
Large mushrooms, sliced
Large onion, diced
Green onions, sliced
Thyme

Melt the butter in a big saucepan. Utilize a whisk to blend in the flour. Cook over low till the roux progresses. Slowly add the milk, stirring regularly. Include the remaining ingredients and cook until done, mixing occasionally, for 30-45 minutes, or until soup obtains the thickness you choose. Be sure not to overcook. You don’t want it to end up tasting like furniture upholstery. Garnish with fresh parsley if you like.

Rather than, or in addition to clams, try any other type of seafood, like shrimp or perch (cut up in small pieces). For any of the veggies, put water chestnut or celery in its place. Chives are good instead of onions. Utilize cilantro instead of the thyme.

EASY CHICKEN VEGETABLE SOUP

Chicken broth
Chicken breasts
Can green beans
Can corn
Large red bell pepper, diced
Large onion, diced
Celery, sliced thinly
Sage
Minced garlic
Cayenne

Drain the canned vegetables. Incorporate all ingredients in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir periodically. Cook for 45 minutes.

Any other lean meat can be used instead of the chicken breast. Instead of the green beans, fresh, sliced zucchini is a good substitute. Just be sure to cook the soup an extra five minutes before serving. Replace a bright colorful (yellow, orange) bell pepper in place of the corn to give the soup some different texture or taste. Replace the sage with thyme.
