The Most Common Mistakes You Make When Cooking Soup

A bowl of hot chicken soup is more than just a meal. It’s the ultimate comfort food, something you eat when you feel sick, and something that reminds many of us of our homes. But if you tried to make it yourself and it turned out disappointing, here are some mistakes you may be making.

Using Instant Bouillon

If you can, it’s best to make your own bouillon using bones and vegetables. You can freeze it in the ice cube mold and use it whenever needed.

Too Hot Temperature

Your soup should simmer on medium heat for the best result. This will allow all the flavors to blend in gradually.

Adding Noodles

If you add noodles too early in the process, they will overcook and fall apart. They only need 5-10 minutes to cook so add them in the end.

Adding the Ingredients

Not all the ingredients have the same cooking time, so you should never add them all at once. Carrots and potatoes need longer to cook than some soft veggies or mushrooms.
