Soup is the perfect multi-purpose food. You can dress it up or down, eat it for comfort and nourishment or to excite the palate. The most versatile dish in our diet, it is welcome in all seasons, popular with all generations. It is great for single people, who can make a big pot and sip it all through the week, and it is suitable for feeding a crowd, as it can easily be stretched. Soup can give new life to leftovers, which provide a convenient springboard to soupmaking.
