Most people will make a soup by boiling items in a pot and letting them stew. To gain the maximum flavour you need to cook the ingredients to release the flavours for a tastier soup base. It is like a foundation when you cook. Create the base while cooking and then add from there. Here is a video for our Fridge Feast Series where we show you how. Video
