• Do not have time to remove the foam and broth dimmed? Do not worry, add some cold water, the broth will boil again and you can remove the foam.
• Turmeric, curry or grated carrots fried in butter, will add beautiful color to the dish.
• If melted cheese is part of the soup, be sure to pay attention to the purchase of this ingredient, that this is a cheese, not a cheese product. Otherwise, instead of a delicious creamy soup, you will get something with floating pieces.
• Want your soup to be thicker? Add some flour or semolina.
