The amount of different soup flavors are endless; however I use the same soup base recipe for most of my non-cream soups. I start with my base and then add different ingredients, depending on the type of soup that I am making. It is a simple combination of ingredients, but produces a flavorful soup base to build upon.
Basic Soup Base Recipe Ingredients:
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 5 cloves garlic
- 5 celery sticks
- 4 medium carrots
- 1 white onion
Basic Soup Base Recipe Instructions:
Mince the garlic and chop the celery, carrots, and onion. Add the vegetables to the soup pot with olive oil and fry on medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring every minute. This will help draw out the flavors from the vegetables, which will later infuse into the soup.
