This time of year is perfect for making homemade soup. Soup out of a can can be great in a pinch, but there is something so much more satisfying about making soup from scratch. This weekend, I made homemade soup… well, half way homemade soup.
I had these gluten free soup packs in my cabinet… you have probably seen them before… a package of spices that you just add meat and chicken stock to on the stove. A little heat, and about 20 minutes later you have soup. I wanted to try the Tomato Basil mix I had, but wanted to add some umph to it. So, I found “Soup Mix” at Whole Foods… a package of pre cut veggies just for soup! Carrots, celery, parsnips, butternut squash, onion.
I took the spice mix, a box of gluten free chicken broth, the pre cut veggies, and put them in a soup pan over medium heat for 20-30 minutes (until the veggies were tender). Ta-da! Halfway homemade soup! It definitely tasted better than canned soup, but wasn’t as much work as doing every step from scratch.
Happy Allergy Free Souping!
