Liver and warm soup for the winter: try 3 recipes | Food

As Vilma Juodkazienė, a food expert from the shopping network “Iki”, quoted in the press release, said, soup is not only a simple dish, but also a useful dish. Actually, even to prepare a simple dish, you need to know some preparation rules.

“Before cooking the soup, don’t forget to fry the vegetables, especially the onions and garlic. When fried, this vegetable becomes a real flavor bomb that gives every soup a unique flavor and aroma. If you only have time, you should also make homemade broth,” said the food expert and shared some other reasons why you should make homemade soup.

Why make and eat soup?

Lots of vegetables. Soup is a great dish to add vegetables to your diet. You can taste the soup not only with traditional vegetables, but also with things such as parsnips, fennel, even various green vegetables, such as spinach. In addition, not only fresh but also frozen vegetables are perfect for soup.

It doesn’t take much time. Soup is a dish that doesn’t take much time. And if you also use a pressure cooker, you can prepare a savory soup in just a few minutes. When preparing to cook the broth, it is worth making another. The broth is also perfect for preparing other dishes, such as homemade stews or even complex dishes like risotto.

It can be frozen. Soups and stews are the best dishes if you want to prepare food for several days in advance. However, if you have cooked the soup too much, you can safely freeze it. In addition, frozen soup or broth does not lose its flavor and is perfect for days when you do not have time to cook lunch or dinner.

Maintain water content in the body. Since winter is a cold season, it is not uncommon to drink less fluid than necessary. But even if we don’t sweat because of the heat, we still lose fluids during our daily activities. Since the base of the soup is water, this dish is a good way not only to fill up, but also to maintain the amount of fluid in the body.

V. Juodkazienė offers to make soup at home and shares 3 different soup recipes.
