Spring time means light rains, new gardens and warmer weather but with a bit of a chill still in the air. So what better way to welcome spring than by making a pot of warm spring soup made with the fresh veggies of the season.

What is Spring Soup?
Spring soup is a soup made with ingredients that are
only in season for a short period during spring. Although
asparagus largely characterizes spring soup, spring
soup may include just about any spring vegetable
added to a broth, chowder, or bisque. Spring soup is
popular largely because it includes fresh ingredients
not seen for a while by the consumer..

Characterization
Where winter soups are hearty to "warm and fortify",
spring soups aim to celebrate "new skies and freshness"
by being "delicate and light, pretty and promising."
Spring soups need lighter, brighter tastes and textures
than their winter counterparts. A reason for this is that
spring soups "capture the essence of the season in a
clean-tasting, refreshing broth that showcases the
pure flavors" of its ingredients.

Ingredients used in spring soup
Ingredients used in spring soup include a purée of pea,
asparagus, rapini, and fennel, with asparagus being
considered the quintessential spring vegetable to largely
characterize spring soup. Spring soups typically show
a subtle green color to reflect spring.

Origin of Soup
Soup can be dated back to about 6,000 B.C. and was
first made of hippopotamus.
• Boiling was not a common cooking technique until the
invention of waterproof containers (which most likely
came in the form of pouches made of clay or animal skin)
about 9,000 years ago.
• Soup was first known as “sop,” which was a piece of
bread served with some type of broth. People used to
pour sop over the bread, allowing it to soak up the broth
before eating. As time went by, sop was placed in
deeper bowls and the liquid became the focal point
instead of the bread. “Sop” soon became “soup” and
bread was dipped in soup or thick stew.
