Secret #6. Use Spices and Flavor-Packed Meats & Cheeses to Add Depth
Add depth of flavor to quick-cooking soups by using ingredients like herbs, spices, strong cheeses and flavorful meats, a 1/2 cup of diced pepperoni adds spicy, complex flavor to minestrone. Adding 2 teaspoons of dried tarragon to Salmon Chowder gives the soup a unique character. Grated Parmesan, ground allspice, caraway seeds and even peanut butter are all great ingredients to add a slow-cooked feel to a quick-cooking soup.
