4 Easy Soup Toppings To Try
Sprinkle vegetables on soups to add texture and visual interest. Both cooked and raw vegetables work, but if you’re using raw veggies, slice them thinly so they don’t overpower the flavor or sink into the soup. Some vegetables that are great for garnishes include:
- Thinly sliced radish or cucumber
- Julienned carrot, cabbage or jicama
- Chopped tomato
- Asparagus tips
- Corn or Peas
Swirls And Dollops
Sauces and spreads like pesto and plant-based yogurt can be a great addition. These toppings add additional body and flavor to a soup. Other toppings you can dollop and swirl in include:
- Salsa, gremolata, or caponata
- Aioli, tzatziki or hummus
- Extra-virgin olive oil, sesame oil, or other nut oils
- Hot sauces
- Asian condiments like hoisin sauce, fish sauce, or soy sauce
Add crunch to your soup for a boost in texture. From croutons to coconuts, the possibilities seem endless. Some crunchy toppings include:
- Croutons or breadcrumbs
- Toasted nuts like almonds or hazelnuts
- Crumbled tortilla chips or crackers
- Toasted pumpkin or sunflower seeds
- Toasted coconut
