Some Soup Thickening Tips
How can you thicken soup that’s thin? We have a few good tricks up our sleeves for you! 1. Use pieces of bread (sprouted whole grain bread, of course). Let the break soak up the soup, and then mash the soggy bread into the broth. This old European trick works very well, and it’s one great way to make thick tastier and thicker at the same time. 2. Try using some pasta to thicken your soup. Pasta will soak up some of the liquid, so it’s an ideal addition to any thin soup. 3. Add some arrowroot powder to the mix. Arrowroot is a vegetarian friendly plant that’s an ideal thickener. 4. Brown some flour, and add the flour to the stew – first, mix the flour with water, though, to form a paste or “roux.” 5. Sometimes, agar flakes can be used. 6. Add some vegetables from the soup to a blender, and add a bit of the soup broth as well. Blend the two together, and then add the mixture back into the soup for a thicker base. It’s easy to thicken soups that have become a bit too thin, and any one of the tips listed above will work perfectly if a thicker soup is what you’re looking for.
