Secret Cooking Tips Files: Soup

It’s that time of year again — when a not-so-young girl’s fancy turns to making soups and stews. I briefly flirted with millet last year — good for you, high in protein, etc. — so I have some left over I need to use up.

Go here to find my millet soup recipe.

Here’s the secret tip you were promised, however:

–When making soup, if the end product is shva (Yiddish for “meh”), try putting the whole thing into the blender (or food processor, if you have a much bigger kitchen than me). I find that a boring vegetable soup will have added body and a sudden interesting creaminess, post puréeing, that just can’t be beat.

I like to chop and add whatever is in the fridge. Remember to use the leaves too if you are including celery, for a more vivid flavor. But soup is so fool proof. Don’t be afraid to go for it. If you have a leftover bottle of wine or beer you aren’t planning to drink, you have to make soup — or stew! It’s illegal not to in some states.

Don’t forget to vote, by the way. Apparently, if Florida is any measure, every single vote does actually count.

    Your millet soup looks quite delicious, but I’ll have to trust you on the blender operation. Don’t own one. Keith has a good processor but God knows how you operate that.
