BASIC SOUP RECIPE-A Ski Day Quick Pick

BASIC SOUP RECIPE-A Ski Day Quick Pick

My husband is the soup maker in our house, and never uses a recipe, he just uses what he finds in the fridge, or he buys a specific type of meat to make a soup with-but still without a recipe. But, there is a starting point for every soup he makes, that is quick and easy and can be adapted to everyone's favourite soup.

  • In your soup pot, brown 2 chopped onions in olive oil-NB-if your kid hates onions, cut them into big chunks so they're easily removed-don't chop them into little pieces, because they'll always find them
  • Add 3 or more cloves of garlic and saute for just a minute or two
  • Fill pot half to three quarters full of broth or water-we usually use water but be sure to add a good amount of salt
  • For broth soup add chopped vegetable: carrots are good to start with because the take a little longer to cook. I love broccoli so most soups include that for me, a couple potatoes cut into cubes, and even a handful of your favourite pasta.
  • For creamy soups add 2-4 potatoes, and when they're soft separate a couple then blend the rest up with a hand blender, then add: carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, white navy beans are a good addition
  • When the vegetables are soft, add back separated potatoes-check for taste-potato soups may need more salt.


*You can see theses are vegetable soup recipes, but can easily be adapted to chicken or beef, with the addition of stock and some cut up cooked chunks of your favourite meat.
*You could throw this in the crock pot overnight, and put it straight into a thermos in the morning ready to go.
Or even better, throw it together before you leave in the morning and have it ready when you get home.
