This Week in Soup (7/21/2017)

If you’re pretty much anywhere in the United States today, it’s hot. Maybe you’re in your air conditioned office or home, so you needed a reminder. But it is about to get straight up disgusting out. Don’t believe me? Let’s ask a pro, specifically my pal Mr. Map.  See. I told you. That shade of…

#tbt: Cream

If you want soups to be thicker AND creamier, add cream. Seems pretty straightforward. I’m not a huge cream guy, cuz honestly, heating up dairy (besides melting cheese) seems kinda weird to me from a food safety standpoint. But love a good, creamy soup. It’s a real struggle. But if you’re a crossroads, maybe in a…

This Week in Soup (4/21/2017)

It’s finally Friday, and we’re here with your soup-centric recap of the last week. Passover has come and gone, and with it many enjoyed delicious bowls of matzoh-ball soup. Any holiday basically mandating the consumption of soup is good in my book. And for those Gentiles out there (you know who you are!), Easter ham…

#tbt: Yogurt!

A lot of soups call for cream, from your clam chowders to your creamy chicken noodle soups. However, for some other soups cream just doesn’t quite seem right, so I like to call up it’s breakfast cousin, yogurt, from the farm team to the major leagues. Also, I’m considerably more likely to have yogurt in…

#tbt: Blend it!

Welcome back to Soup & Society’s version of #tbt! This week we’re going to talk about a little known way to thicken soups that is almost so obvious once you hear it you’ll wonder why you haven’t thought of it before: just take a couple of cups of the soup, blend it, and stir it…

Cheers to National Beer Day!

We did it! It’s beer day! Even though it seems like just about every other day is a “national something day,” but National Beer Day is different. It has a history that goes back to FDR. For a little while, here in America we decided that alcohol was not so good and we shouldn’t have…

#tbt: Coconut Milk

This is the first edition in a weekly series called #tbt or “Thicker Broth Thursday.” Have you ever made a soup and it was just a little too, well, soupy? I know I have. Fortunately, there are a lot of different ways to remedy the situation without jeopardizing the flavor of your soup. Each Thursday,…

This Week In Soup (3/31/2017)

This Week In Soup is back at long last. And let me tell you, it’s coming back strong. Each week has seven days, but this week the soup gods smiled down and said, “Give them more soup news then they can handle.  How much can we pack in seven days to let them know we…

BREAKING: Migos Loves Soup Too!

Soup just picked up a celebrity endorsement, and it’s a big one. Hot off their smash hit “Bad and Boujee (feat. Lil Uzi Vert),” Migos came out to say that soup is underrated. Well guys, if you’re reading this, we’d have to say we agree. They’d mentioned Crock-Pots in their song, but they just took…
