Making Homemade Soup

Soup is just a combination of a bunch of things you like that are simmered together to make a yummy dinner. There are no right or wrong things to put in soup. Just be sure to add slower cooking vegetables later in the simmering stage so they do not overcook. Soup is a good way to clean out your refrigerator.


 Cooking Oil
 Aromatic Vegetables
 Meat or Poultry
 Water, Stock or Wine
 Salt and Pepper
 Cream or Butter


Sauté the aromatic vegetables such as onions, celery, and carrots in butter or oil to make the soup base. Brown meat if desired.

Use a small amount of stock, water or wine to the pan to deglaze the pan. You can also add butter or oil and flour to make a roux if you want a thicker soup.

Add other ingredients such as potatoes, corn, vegetables, etc. and start simmering. Simmer until the vegetables are done to your liking.

Adjust the seasoning to your taste. You can also add butter or cream at this point to make a richer soup.

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
