Tips for flavorful vegetable soups
One of the best ways to get the most flavor out of vegetables is to roast them. Roasting carrots is easy. Simple cut them into even chunks, toss with olive oil and salt, then roast. You’ll get so much more flavor from roasting the carrots rather than simply boiling them.
Another tip for flavorful soup is to use vegetable or chicken stock in place of water for the liquid. You can use vegetable stock if you want to keep this soup vegan.
