3 ways to dress up soups


3 ways to dress up soups
Cool weather calls for hearty soups, and with our easy but impressive presentation tips and tricks, you can transform what would otherwise be a simple dish into something special.

1. BREAD BOWL

Preheat oven to 200°C. Cut the tops from large crusty bread rolls and remove most of the bread inside, leaving a shell about 2cm thick. Place rolls and tops on a baking tray. Bake until crispy. Place rolls on serving plates and fill with hot chunky soup. Place the tops on the side and serve.
2. MAKE A SWIRL

Place two varieties of different-coloured yet complementary smooth soups in two separate heatproof jugs - try potato and leek soup in one and mushroom soup in the other. Holding one jug over one side of the serving bowl and the second jug on the opposite side, pour the soups simultaneously into the bowl and watch them swirl. Serve.

3. RIBBON FINISH

Use a vegetable peeler to slice sweet potato or parsnip lengthways into thin ribbons. Deep-fry the vegetable ribbons in hot oil until golden. Drain on paper towel, then serve on top of hot soup.
