Wednesday’s Helping: Handy Ingredients for Quick Soups & Chowders
Other substitutes in a pinch
If you need to make a rich soup, such as a bisque or chowder, in a matter of minutes instead of hours then we suggest stocking up on canned essentials. Store-bought stock, broth, or soup bullion can work wonders in quickly adding flavor. Keep a can or two of evaporated milk on hand to make creamy dairy-based soups. We suggest doing the same with canned stewed tomatoes for tomato-based soups. If canned crab doesn’t make the grade, we suggest keeping 1lb of frozen shrimp in the freezer at all times. These are all little steps toward making a rich and hearty soup in a flash. Can you think of other suggestions?
