How to Make Delicious and Nourishing Soups

Nov 09, 2020

Soup certainly doesn’t sound like any special life-changing superfood. It’s soup, you’ve eaten it all your life. Yet it has massive potential that often gets hidden behind nasty preservatives and less-than-ideal flavoring agents. The true beauty and nourishment happen with whole food ingredients and high-quality homemade bone broth. This is where the magic happens.

Benefits of Soup

A daily soup made from local, seasonal ingredients and high-quality broth is better than any superfood or supplement out there. It’s a wholesome way to nourish your skin, immune system, joints, digestion, and gut health.

Homemade bone broth is rich in natural gelatin which is anti-aging and great for rebuilding damaged intestinal lining. Making bone broth from scratch is as easy as throwing your leftover chicken carcass in a large pot of water and letting it simmer for 24 hours. This gets all the good stuff out of the bones and into the liquid.

Go to your local farmer’s market and get the freshest seasonal produce you can find. In the summer I love cooking fresh garlic, beets, and carrot in a homemade stock and blending with fresh dill. Served cold on a hot day with a drizzle of plain yogurt, this soup is refreshingly tangy and packed with nutrients.

In the Fall and Winter, soups made with root vegetables and hearty herbs like sage and rosemary are ideal. It’s all about sourcing local, pesticide-free vegetables for the most nutrient-dense soups. Nothing you can buy from the store compares to what you can make at home with relatively little effort. 

The flavor base of every good soup should be sauteed onions, garlic, and herbs. This is what all those flavor packs are trying to emulate. It doesn’t take long to cut up an onion and throw it in a hot pan with some olive oil, but it makes all the difference.
