You can use these soup seasoning recipes liberally with any beef, vegetable or chicken soup. They are also great for improving bland commercial soups. If you don’t have a specific herb simply omit it. You can make the dried blend ahead of time.
Dried soup seasoning recipe:
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon dried marjoram
½ tablespoon celery seed
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon dried winter savory
Use about 1 level tablespoon of the dried blend for every 2 cups of soup. This can go in right from the start.
Fresh soup seasoning recipe for every 2 cups of soup:
1-2 teaspoons flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
1-2 teaspoon chervil, finely chopped
1-2 teaspoons basil, finely chopped
1 teaspoon lemon zest
Add the fresh blend about 10 minutes before serving. The lemon zest may seem like an odd ingredient but it enhances the other flavours without actually being detectable.
