Background on Soups
Essentially a liquid food that is made by combining ingredients such as tofu and vegetables with stock, water or another liquid, soups are popular in nearly every cuisine the world over. They have been around for about 20,000 years and ever since man invented waterproof cooking containers. The English word comes from the French word 'soupe', an extension of the word 'sop' - to soak up liquid with a bread.
The range of soups is quite staggering. They can be both hot or cold, spicy or mild, savoury or sweet, clear or broth (like a stew). They can even be bought pre-made in a can, or in a packet in instant powder form. They are often served as a starter/appetiser but can also be used as a main course. Common classifications include broths, chowders, bouillon, consommés, purées and bisques.
Some of the most popular vegetarian and vegan soups from around the world include Ezogelin (Turkish), Revithia, Bourou-Bourou, Faki and Fasolada (Greek), Onion soup and Chestnut bisque (French), Gazpacho, Sopa de Gato and Salmorejo (Spanish or Portuguese), Vegetable gumbo (Creole), Leek soup (Welsh), Lentil soup (Middle Eastern or Mediterranean), bean, aushroom, celery, asparagus, broccoli, cucumber, pumpkin and tomato soups (universal), Minestrone, Acquacotta, Maccu and Zuppa Toscana (Italian), Mulligatawny and Rasam (Indian), Noodle soup (Asian), Sayur asem, Soto and Sayur tumpang (Indonesian), Sorrel soup and Cold borscht (East European), Shchi (Russian), Binignit, Munggo guisado, Ginataan and Sinigang (Philippino), Split peas soup and Callaloo (Caribbean), Tom yum (Thai), Kwati (Nepalese), Corn chowder (USA), and Ärtsoppa and Fruktsoppa (Swedish).
