5 Comforting Soups that will Keep you Warm

Comforting soup

When temperatures plunge, nothing is more comforting than a piping hot bowl of soup. Here are five original soup ideas that will revitalize you.


Preparing the broth

​No matter what kind of soup you plan to make, the first step is to create an aromatic base by browning some chopped onions, garlic, leeks or scallions in oil, butter or margarine. Next, add the liquid base of your choice: chicken broth, vegetable juice diluted in water or milk or coconut milk for Asian-inspired recipes. 8 cups (2 L)
