Quick soup making tips

  • For a complete meal make sure to add some protein if the soup contains none – hard boiled eggs, sliced grilled chicken, tinned fish, sliced turkey or ham, beef jerky, etc.
  • Use good quality stock, either homemade or store purchased.
  • Soups are great for using cheaper cuts of meat and leftover vegetables.
  • Soups can be eaten for breakfast.
  • Make a big batch to freeze for later.
  • Add winter herbs such as thyme and rosemary at the start and fresh herbs such as basil and parsley at the end.
  • Add texture with raw ingredients, crispy bacon, sharp Parmesan, seeds and nuts.
  • Use bone broth in soups to make them extra nutritious.
  • Don’t add too much salt at the beginning, just enough to season the meat or veggies when starting out. The liquid will reduce during cooking and you might end up with saltier soup than desired. Taste for salt towards the end and add more than. Also remember that adding things like Parmesan cheese, bacon, anchovies, capers and store bought stock will add saltiness.
  • If heating up canned or boxed soup, add the following to freshen and spice them up: freshly chopped spinach, kale or spring onion, fresh arugula (rocket), sliced grilled chicken or crumbled bacon, sliced hard boiled egg or poached egg, caramelised onions, grated sharp cheddar or Parmesan, spoonful of ricotta or yogurt, fresh herbs like parsley or basil, cracked pepper, chilli and fresh lime, grated carrot or beetroot, finely diced red peppers and tomatoes.
  • Freeze homemade stock in ice-cube trays or small containers.

  1. HI,
    I don’t understand why many of these are called “Paleo” soups since they have cheese in them and dairy is not a Paleo food. Can you explain?
