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?
