softening vegetables
    #3778691 - 02/14/05 04:06 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I'm making some tomato soup, and I'm just wondering about the directions. They want you to cook the celery onions and carrots over low heat until softened. Why is that when they'll soften when I add the tomatoes and chicken stock and bring to a boil?

because they are quite hard vegetables and if you were to add them afterwards, then you'd have crunchy tomato soup. does the instructions only say to boil all that? is there no pureeing to be done?

sauteeing them first caramelizes them and adds more flavor. this mir poix is almost always added to soups and serves as a flavor base upon which other flavors can be added to build depth.

but on low heat it won't carmelize. The recipe just says to soften the vegetables for 10 minutes.

well, after the softening, you add all the liquid and simmer for like 20 minutes, then throw it all in the blender.
