National Soup Month

National Soup Month

January is National Soup month, so we at Matthew’s Kitchen, asked our fellow bloggers for help to come up with the best soup recipes they had to share. They certainly came through. However, while we were sorting through the recipes, we noticed that many of these bloggers (nothing but love to them) are confused on what is defined as Soup. They also gave us stew and chili recipes, which, firstly thank you to all of them for helping out, but secondly, we realize that we should clarify the differences between the 3 as it can be confusing.

Soup is a liquid-based dish where ingredients like vegetables, meats or legumes (or any combination of the three) are boiled in water, stock or broth to meld and enhance the dish’s favors. There are many types of soups, from creamy chowder to pureed butternut squash, but the main characteristic of soup is that there’s a lot of liquid.

Stew is a dish where larger pieces of meat and vegetables are partially covered, but not floating, in a cooking liquid and then simmered until the ingredients are tender and the liquid has thickened. The cooking liquid can be broth or stock, like a soup, or something richer like wine, beer or tomato juice. And, while most stews include chunks of meat, it can be vegetarian, too. Moststews are served with a starchy side like mashed potatoes, noodles, polenta or rice, but you can certainly eat it on its own.

Chili is a type of spicy stew that typically contains ground meat and chili powder, plus beans and tomato. There’s a multitude of Chili types, but you can tell it apart from other stews by its heavy use of fresh chilis and/or chili powder. When we say chili has a lot of variation, we mean it. Chili can be made with pretty much any meat (or made vegetarian), with or without beans, be tomato- or broth-based, stuffed with veggies or made with pretty much just meat, which is how we make ours here at Matthew’s Kitchen.

With that being clarified now, lets see all those amazing recipes.
