Soupiness – Soup to Nuts is a 1930 film that was the first feature film for the Three Stooges. It’s also an adaptation of a Rube Goldberg novel.
From soup to nuts is a phrase that means “from beginning to end” or “from A to Z.” It was used in English from the 1500s on. It was initially used to describe actual fancy formal dinners but later it became a metaphorical one.
How to make a soup
Soup is a simple, nutritious, and tasty meal that can be made with just about any ingredient. You can make a soup with just vegetables, or add other ingredients to the mix like meat and pasta.
To start making a soup, you need to figure out what kind of soup you want to make and how thick it should be. A thick soup will be defined by its thickening agent, such as a puree (blended vegetable paste).
Once you have decided on your base, choose aromatics that you enjoy. Saute a few basic vegetables, such as onions, leeks, garlic and carrots in some fat like butter or olive oil until softened.
Season with salt and pepper as you go. Then introduce your desired veggies and aromatics and let them cook through, giving your soup the time it needs to absorb flavour.
How to make a stew
Beef stew is a hearty meal that’s comforting and easy to make. It’s made with cubed beef mixed with vegetables in a rich broth. It’s perfect for weeknight meals or a hearty dinner when you have a long day ahead.
Traditionally, beef stew is made with chuck roast, but you can also use more tender cuts of meat like sirloin. These are less expensive and more flavorful than chuck because they’re well marbled with fat.
Stew is often seasoned with dried spices, but you can also add fresh herbs at the end to give it a bit more kick. Some classics include thyme, paprika and celery or fennel seeds.
Browning the beef before adding it to the stew is key, as it caramelizes the exterior and gives it a deep, flavorful crust. It’s also important to remove any extra fat and connective tissue before searing so that the stew doesn’t dry out too much.
How to make a chowder
A chowder is a thick and creamy soup with a variety of ingredients. It typically has a base of stock or milk and may also include vegetables such as onions, celery, and potatoes.
Clam chowder is the classic, but you can also try corn chowder or fish chowder. These are both delicious and perfect for summer.
If you want to add texture to your chowder, consider using a roux and/or potato. Russet potatoes are naturally starchy and will help your chowder thicken as they cook.
If you don’t like the texture of a roux, you can also use a mixture of fat-free half-and-half and flour to make a slurry. This prevents clumping, and the taste of the flour will be cooked out of the soup.
