How To Liven Up Your Soup's Bland Flavor
By Camryn Teder
Soup is a winter staple for a reason, and while the idea of a warm, hearty bowl of chicken noodle soup is beautiful, the result doesn't always come out as perfectly as planned. Here are some tricks you can use to ensure your next batch of soup is tasty and sure to please.
It would be best if you simmered your soup instead of boiling it to avoid spoiling the texture, per Good Housekeeping. Additionally, you can add ingredients at different times based on their consistency, like adding firm potatoes first and soft peas last, while adding salt and other seasons to taste throughout the process.
Adding an acidic ingredient like lemon juice or vinegar can also be a great addition to your soup to give it an especially smooth taste and bring out other flavors. Other acidic options include white wine, buttermilk, or even tomato purée for a dash of something sour to bring much-needed balance to a dish.
