If you would like to make your soups and chili’s more flavorful, here are two simple things you can do that really make a huge difference:
- Finely chop any vegetables. When vegetables are cut into small, uniform pieces, they cook more quickly and evenly, and also release a good deal more flavor, than large irregular cuts.
- Prepare the day ahead. The nice thing about this is that you can plan ahead and make a soup or chili ahead of time for one of those nights (or breakfasts) that you don’t have the time to cook. In addition, by allowing time, the flavors will have a change to integrate and become richer.
