soup

Backstory

This soup is very flexible and can be made with any firm veggies in any season.

Some kids are soup kids, and some are not such fans. But soup is worth serving and getting into your family’s rhythm. It is a great way to use all the veggies in your fridge, and a strategy to make easy yummy meals. So if you are not big fans, it is something I encourage you to put some time into and make a big effort to embrace!

Soup night can have fun things to dip: Garlic bread, quesadilla, and plain toast sticks. Sometimes that is a way to draw in skeptics. That said, in our house you have to also be willing to eat your soup with a spoon!

Picky to Adventurous

  1. Start with simple purées
  2. Add more tastes to the purées
  3. Make soups where the veggies are diced super fine, start simple, and always have a component your kid loves
  4. Add more veggies
