Healing Power of Soup

Soup is such a magical thing. We have soup in our home, at minimum, two nights a week. It is a great way to get broth and the nutrients that come with the use of homemade broth, use up all those veggies in your fridge, incorporate culture and spice.

Spices for health, so many to list but most importably for my family:

tumeric

garlic

onion

cumin

tomato paste

Gochujang paste

curries

coconut milk, cream, oil

rosemary

lemon

lime

Adding in fermented foods or cultured foods is a great way to add a one two punch. These should be added when the soup is done cooking and about to eat. They should not be boiled to reap the best benefits.

kimchi

sauerkraut

Gochujang paste

fermented veggies

fermented hot sauce

fermented jalapeños

Other sources of spice that can  be added as a topper :

homemade yogurt

homemade sour cream

pickled onions or veggies
