The Best Spices for Soup

The best spices for soup this winter include the following:

Garlic Powder

Garlic powder will add an instant burst of flavour to vegetable, seafood, meat, and chicken soups. Add to butternut soup, lentil soup, minestrone, chunky vegetable soup, Italian soup, tomato soup, and any other soup that needs a dose of garlicky goodness. Although fresh garlic or garlic flakes can also work, powdered garlic is quick and easy, and also easy to use sparingly in small doses to avoid overpowering other ingredients with too much garlic.

Turmeric Powder

Turmeric is another incredibly versatile spice that can be used in a huge variety of dishes. In soups, turmeric powder can add flavour and aroma to butternut soup, pumpkin soup, carrot soup, chicken soup, curry soup, red lentil soup, sweet potato soup, chicken soup, and other soups. It works well when paired with other spices such as curry powder, coriander powder, cinnamon powder, ginger powder, and cumin powder. 

Coriander Powder

Coriander powder is also a good staple for your soup spice collection. This spice has many forms - fresh, whole seeds and ground powder. Each gives a different variation of the flavour. Ground coriander has plenty of taste without being overpowering. It is spicy yet mild, working well in just about every type of soup. It enhances the flavour of chicken, meat, and vegetables.
