Transforming the idea of soup


Poor man’s food, a reason to use leftovers, or the dish for the sick: For a long time, soups were neither very popular nor considered favorite dishes. Even today, soup is unfortunately still not considered a true delicacy. However, the general outlook on it has improved significantly in recent years. Online, you can find newly created soup recipes every day as well as numerous sources of inspiration from other countries and cultures. Soups are increasingly becoming part of an eating culture that values quality and healthiness. They are no longer served only as comforting winter soups, but also as summer soups for cozy meals with family and friends. Nowadays, soups are no longer boring or colorless: Instead, they’re lively, original and delicious!


Why soups are so healthy


Everyone knows that when you’re sick, you long for a warm and soothing chicken soup to quickly get back on your feet and strengthen your immune system. The invigorating effect of chicken soup has even been scientifically proven. A summery alternative to chicken soup is the Thai coconut soup Tom Kha Gai. With ginger as one of its ingredients, it is also a good immune booster. Soups provide us with plenty of important vitamins and minerals. Depending on which ingredients are chosen, they can also be very healthy. If you prepare the soup yourself instead of getting a ready-made soup from the supermarket, you can also be sure what’s in it: no hydrogenated fats, extra sugar, or additives.


If you cook soups with lots of vegetables, you’ve got a guaranteed vitamin supplier. The high proportion of vegetables in soups fills us up through their dietary fibers. Our digestion also gets stimulated while the body’s detoxified. If you’d rather cut out a few calories, you should go for clear soups. And if you prefer something heartier now and then, light cream soups are ideal. We have a tasty recipe for you further down in this blog post.

Soup preparation is quick and easy as can be: You can even let the soup simmer on its own for a few minutes once you’ve thrown all the ingredients into the pot.
