Soup & Casserole Recipes

Excellent as sides, appetizers, or even entrees on their own, soups and casseroles add a delicious touch to any meal. The beauty lies in the ability to combine any number of veggies with any number of proteins for a myriad of flavors and textures.

  1. Always boil with cold water, never warm or hot. Cold water has the fewest minerals from your plumbing and water heater, so it has the least effect on taste.
  2. Don't let the soup boil. It should simmer very gently or the meat will become tough and the broth cloudy.
  3. If you've made a soup meant to be cold, recheck seasonings just before serving as chilled foods tend to dull the taste buds and will need more seasoning than hot soups.
  4. For casseroles, cut your ingredients, such as meat, potatoes and parsnips, into similar-sized pieces to ensure they cook evenly.
  5. A tight-fitting lid on your casserole dish ensures the dish doesn't lose moisture during the long cooking process.
