Three Chile Tortilla Soup

from

Tortilla soup tastes good year round and is a great soup to menu during warmer months starting around Cinco de Mayo. It can easily be tweaked to meet any taste buds— from those who like their soup a little spicy, to vegetarian options, and more. It’s perfect served alongside an appetizer for lunch or as a light dinner option. Chips and guacamole, queso fundido, empanadas or a chile relleno all make a nice accompaniment any time of day.

Truffled Potato Soup

from

It was a no-brainer for me to create a pairing between potato and truffle. Not only are the flavors complementary, but the humble potato creates a nice juxtaposition with one of the world’s most exclusive ingredients. I love the idea of pairing silky potato soups with ingredients that will really elevate the natural earthiness of the potato. Potatoes, leeks, truffles and onions all spend the majority of their time growing underground. I think that’s why they pair so well with the potato.

Butternut Squash Bisque

from

I believe in always starting vegetable bisque with a great, well-rounded stock. That’s what will give your soup its backbone. For my recipe I started with a sesame sauce. The sauce, butternut squash and banana all play off each other perfectly. The primary squash flavor is elevated with a touch of nuttiness from the sesame sauce and the subtle yet unexpected flavor of the banana.

Roasted Garlic & Sun Dried Tomato Minestrone Soup

from

I used the bold flavors found in MINOR’S® Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Flavor Concentrate alongside the deep, umami-rich flavors of MINOR’S Roasted Garlic Flavor Concentrate to take my soup to the next level. Up front you get the sun dried tomato flavor and the meatiness of the broth with the vegetable and roasted garlic notes that carry all the way through. Hints of Parmesan (similar to a brodo or an Italian broth)add a delicious twist to familiar minestrone flavor.

Chicken Ramen Soup

from

The key to creating good ramen is the broth—it has to be great. No matter what type you are making, the broth has to be the star. I kept this in mind with my own recipe and started with umami rich ingredients including kombu, smoky MINOR’S® Ham Base NAMSG and dried shitake. These flavors added a lot of depth and body of the broth for a truly delicious take on this Japanese classic.

Thai Style Lobster Bisque

from

Using MINOR’S® Red Thai-Style Curry Sauce to liven up my lobster bisque was a no brainer. Red peppers, ginger, tomatoes and coconut with the authentic Thai herbs and flavors of red curry, lemongrass, kaffir lime and spicy chili pepper blended perfectly with classic lobster bisque to create a creamy, flavorful combination.

With classic chowder, you start by sautéing smoked pork and then adding flavorful clam stock. In this soup you start by making dashi, which brings a smoky element from the bonito and umami from the kombu. White miso adds another layer of umami.
