Soup garnish and toppings

-Herbs: Use fresh, roughly chopped basil, parsley, cilantro.

-Cheese: Shredded mozzarella and parmesan are best! Gouda cheese is also a classic choice.

Tips and Techniques

-Use nonstick pot to prevent sticking and burning.

-Use low sodium broth and unsalted butter to prevent soup from becoming too salty.

-If you don’t have vegetable broth, you can replace it with chicken broth.

-Adjust the amount of seasonings, based on your preference.

-Jarred roasted red peppers or homemade roasted red peppers can be used.

-Sriracha sauce is optional but highly recommended since it adds a subtle spicy kick. You can also replace it with 1/2 test red chili flakes OR even omit it altogether if you don’t like spice.

-All-purpose flour yields the best results. Don’t replace it with any other flour.

-If soup looks too thin at the end, cook without lid on medium heat until liquid is reduced and soup thickens to your desired consistency.

-If soup is too thick, thin it by adding some more broth or water at the end.
