Let what's fresh and local inspire your soup this winter. Keep this simple method in mind and you can make a soup from any vegetable you have on hand!
-Prep Main Ingredient (i.e. Squash, Potatoes, Carrots, etc.)
- Choose some aromatics (i.e. garlic, onion, leeks, etc.)
- Sauté the vegetables and aromatics in fat of choice (We usually like a mix of butter and olive oil for a rich, flavorful soup)
-Add extras like spices, tomato paste, or keep it simple and season with just salt and pepper.
- Cover with cooking liquid of choice by one inch (you could use stock or water here) and simmer until main ingredient is cooked through.
-Finish the soup. Puree or mash by hand to desired consistency and finish with a touch of cream or coconut milk for a creamy consistency!
Note: Alternatively you could roast your main ingredients and aromatics rather than sauté them for extra flavor, then just proceed by adding them to a pot, adding 'extras' and simmering with liquid of choice.
