Thick and lovely

An elegantly thin soup is wonderful to start a meal, but if you are hankering for the warming comfort of a lovely thick soup, you might like to know a few options to thicken your soup :

  • A purée of a vegetable included in the soup.
  • Lentils, which will break down and thicken the soup.
  • A slurry of cornflour slackened with a little of the soup before stirring in.
  • A roux making the base of the soup.
  • Rice.
  • Breadcrumbs.
  • Egg yolks.
  • Yoghurt.
  • Ground nuts.
