I am aiming to make all my soups gluten free. I am a label reader and most prepared soups, especially creamed ones, are not gluten free. Making from scratch means I can control what goes into the soup. I use ingredients that are naturally gluten free and if I want to thicken the soup I use gluten free flour or cornstarch.

*** Hint: Waste not want not.

I frequently save the liquid from cooking veggies and potatoes to use as stock for my soups. I also poach chicken in water and save the liquid to use as a base for my chicken soups.

One of my favourite cookery books is The Essential Vegetarian Cookbook and I’ve found lots of my favourite soup recipes in here. This was a bargain $2 book from a Seedy Saturday visit a few years ago.

Another favourite cookery book I have is The English Kitchen, where I found some of my soup recipes.

Hint: If your pot bubbles over, try putting a wooden spoon across it to stop the bubbles.
