Creamy Soups To Make If You’re Tired Of Plain Sabaw
Serve these with crackers on the side!
Soups are a cook's way of showing you they care for you. The piping hot bowls of comforting liquid that you can easily sip are meant to not take any toll on you. Even eating chewing might be too much effort so when you're presented with soup, be grateful to the one who serves it.
That's why soup is the common dish served to those who are feeling less than perfect. However, sometimes soup can be less than filling. When this is the case and you want something more substantial to fill your tummy, a heftier, creamier soup is just what the doctor could have ordered!
If you want more than sabaw to ease your hunger pangs, here are creamy soups to help you do just that:
1 Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipes
Fresh mushrooms make flavorful soups, but it's not the only kind of mushroom that can deliver on flavor. Fresh mushrooms will need to be cooked down before these release their flavor. That's where dried mushrooms can be the surprise as well as the secret ingredient. Drying mushrooms actually concentrates their flavor which is why you not only need to rehydrate them but you also want to save the water it was in. Once dried mushrooms are reconstituted, you get more flavorful, aromatic mushrooms, plus an umami-packed mushroom broth to use as a base for your soup.
2 Cream of Pea Soup Recipe
Green peas may not have a great reputation as a vegetable but that's probably because the green peas we have are commonly frozen peas. While these should be almost good as fresh, few take the time to really cook these until softened. If you want to change people's minds about the green pea, this recipe is sure to make that effort worth it.
Try it with some potatoes and bacon to give it a neven bigger fighting chance to win anyone's taste buds over!
3 Cream of Zucchini Soup
It's not always apparent when you take a look at a vegetable whether it will make a great-tasting soup or not. In the case of the zucchini, its green body hides a delicate flavor that when cooked, can be made into a delicious soup, especially when paired with a creamy chicken soup base.
Top with a swirl of cream and a dash of pepper for a kick with every spoonful.
4 Creamy Tomato Soup Recipe
When you think of a soup to pair with a grilled cheese sandwich, the automatic response is tomato soup. This is actually a great recipe because the soup recipe only needs a few ingredients and minimal effort to make. The rest of your efforts can go to perfecting that melty grilled cheese sammy!
You can add some appetizing chunks like shrimp and corn to make it extra hearty!
5 Cream of Sayote Soup Recipe
You probably know sayote because it's the vegetable you commonly use for tinolang manok. If you're tired of simple tinolang manok as your soup dish of the day, why not still make it with similar ingredients but make the veggie the star? This sayote soup is creamy but delivers on the chicken (as boneless chunks) and ginger pairing that you love in the original comforting soup.
6 Cream Of Asparagus Soup Recipe
Asparagus is another one of those ingredients that you might not think to make into soup. That's why when made into one, it makes for a delightful surprise. This makes for an elegant side dish to serve with steak and roast meat dishes instead of relying on just plain roasted veggies.
7 Sweet Potato Soup Recipe
It's not always the cream that makes a soup creamy! In this case, the sweet potatoes create a silky soup when pureed. The result is this elegant soup that is basically sweet potato puree made extra delicious.
