There’s a chill in the air. You’ve got a nice, toasty sweater on as your mind drifts to thoughts of ice skating, snow and…soup. Yep, that’s right, soup. Who doesn’t appreciate a bowl of steaming, hot soup, loaded to the brim with vegetables, broth and other goodness? While soup is delicious, it can also be incredibly nutritious too. For example, basil used in soup provides anti-viral, anti-oxidant and anti-microbial properties. Combine it with tomatoes and you are serving up a potently healthy meal chock full of dietary fiber, minerals and vitamins.
If you like soup, you’ll find plenty of recipes here at gourmetrecipe.com. Let’s start with the winter staple in the American diet. A cup of Chicken Vegetable Soup brings warmth to the bones and a smile to your mouth. It is also rumored to be a miracle cure for a cold. Yet have you considered a more creative take to this favorite? How about a bowl of Chicken and Spinach Tortellini Soup or a cup of Chicken Leek Soup instead of the traditional favorite?
If you are feeling real adventurous and ready to try something new in the world of soup, knock out the meat completely and serve up African Peanut Soup, Butternut Squash Soupor Cabbage and Corn Soup. These web site favorites are sure to please, while offering your taste buds an exciting dining experience.
