Soups are Souper!


Pureed soups, such as cream of asparagus may sound exotic, but they are quite simple to make. Even a novice in the kitchen can be successful. A hand held immersion blender is a good appliance to invest in for making pureed soups hassle-free. This appliance is placed right into the soup pot, move it around, and viola – pureed soup!

Don’t overlook fruit soups. They are sweet, healthy and refreshing. Most fruit soups require no cooking. You simply put ingredients in a blender and whirl away. Fruits soups are a huge hit with toddlers.

Create a “Soup Bar” to make it family fun! Prepare a simple soup recipe and spoon it into bowls or cups. Line up a series of topping choices and let the kids sprinkle their own toppings on the soup! Here are some suggestions:


  • Thinly sliced green onions
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Cubes of avocado
  • Wedges of lemon or lime
  • Sour cream
  • Bacon bits
  • Diced Ham or chicken
  • Shredded cheese
  • Croutons or broiled cheese toasts
