This week we are talking about "stone soups" — surprisingly tasty, satisfying soups that makes the most of a handful of unpromising ingredients — and asking some of our favorite food writers for their go-to recipes. Today, Catherine McCord of Weelicious shares the comforting, veggie-packed soup that she and her daughter are happy to eat for days on end.
What is your favorite kid-friendly "stone soup" to make?
My Spiced Carrot Cauliflower Soup.
What makes this soup so special?
Most people wouldn't think that blending up two seemingly unexciting ingredients would give you a warm and comforting soup that is bursting with flavor in every bite. Whenever I make this soup, my daughter Chloe and I eat it for days in a row! I often make several batches at a time.
What is your best piece of advice for making a great soup?
Let it simmer! When you let soup simmer, all the ingredients and flavors have time to join together and the soup just becomes more and more flavorful.
Thank you, Catherine!
