Chef’s Tips

Adapt to Your Taste: Use the vegetables to adjust the flavor to your taste.  Adding more carrot will highlight the sweetness, while onions and garlic will add savory flavors.  Tomato paste adds richness and depth.  For an extra kick, add a splash of hot sauce after the soup is done cooking.
