Anyone who knows me knows that I am passionate about soup. There is no better food to warm the heart and restore the soul. Whether smooth and silky, rustic and chunky, or light and bubbly, soup evokes feelings of comfort and care.
When I was a kid, my mom always had a casserole of chicken or turkey broth on the go, ready to work its magic in one of her excellent soups. He not only fed our bellies, he fed our hearts.
Soup is the first thing I offer our children if they feel bad; it helps soothe everything from a cold to a tired body.
Almost all countries and cultures have soup at their heart. In Morocco, many Muslims eat fragrant and nourishing harira to break Ramadan. Chicken soup is taken very seriously in millions of Jewish homes and is administered for everything from mild heart aches to the flu (hence its nickname “Jewish penicillin”). Even arguments between lovers and family quarrels calmed down because of gazpacho in Spain and borscht in Russia. Soup is the ultimate fixer.
Soup is so ingrained into the fabric of my family’s life that I roast a chicken at least once a week, partly as part of the ritual of making fresh broth. There’s no better way to squeeze all the goodness out of leftover bones than by boiling them with nourishing vegetables and aromatic herbs. Nutrients can help boost our immune system, gut, brain, hormones, skin, and of course, our mood. Join me on this soup adventure.
