What Flavors Do Herbs Add In Soups?

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, herbs that are heated or crushed to flavor and aroma to a dish are called aromatics. Each herb not only provides unique flavors but also various health benefits. Most spices have a complex flavor combination.

  • Bitter flavors: The bitter bite in soups can be created with herbs such as celery, clove, juniper, lavender, oregano, marjoram, thyme, and turmeric.
  • Sulfury flavors: Some herbs with slightly sulfur scent rather than flavor include garlic, chives, and onion.
  • Floral (flowery) flavors: The flavors of spring, tea, and fruits are often found in herbs such as lavender, thyme, saffron, sweet basil, rose petals, coriander, and lemongrass.
  • Spicy flavors: Herbs with flavors that can be described as spicy include chili, nutmeg, coriander, bay leaf, cassia cinnamon, marjoram, ginger, curry leaf, cloves, cumin, and bay leaf.
  • Pungent flavors: Herbs with strong scents and flavors include garlic, onion, horseradish, ginger, anise, marjoram, mustard, paprika, anise, wasabi, dill seeds, and spearmint.

How Do You Use Herbs in Soups?

Beef, Eggs and Fish Soups

Herbs are plant parts that can be used to add flavor, color, or thickness to soups. Whether you buy or grow herbs, whether you use them fresh, dried, or powdered, you can use them in different ways.

  • Toppings of herbs such as oregano, parsley, chives, or basil can be added to hot or cold soups, either chopped, minced, sliced, or crushed.
  • Garnishes of herbs are used to add a decorative touch to dishes, but they can also be consumed. Examples are rosemary, parsley, thyme or basil. A sprig or leaf is often enough to garnish.
  • Herb purees are added as thickener or served alongside soup dishes. Examples are pesto (garlic, parmesan, pine nuts, dill, chives) and stir-in-cubes, which are frozen herb purees (usually leaves such as cilantro, parsley, etc) in ice trays.

PRO TIP: Soft herbs (such as parsley, basil, coriander) can be used in raw or uncooked soups but can also be used as garnish or toppings in hot or cold soup.

Herb blends

are pre-mixed combinations of herbs. These can be tied together or wrapped in muslin or cheesecloth for ease of removal before serving. Here are some examples:

Bouquet garni: Tie with a string or wrap in cheesecloth any fresh herbs (e.g., basil, marjoram, thyme, rosemary, bay leaf, sage, peppercorns). Use to infuse flavor in any soup, stew, or stock. Remove before serving.

Buttered herb: Combine with a stick of unsalted butter or margarine about 3 tablespoons of dried herbs 6 tablespoons fresh herbs, white pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice. This can be used to thicken soups.

Carribean herbal blend: This can be used as a marinade or a seasoning for any soup or meat dishes. The blend is a combination of thyme, hot pepper, allspice, cloves, garlic, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Chinese five spice: This blend is spicy with a bit of sweetness: cloves, star anise, cinnamon, fennel seeds, and Sichuan peppers. Use to season soups, stir-fries, or meat before grilling or roasting.

Curry herb blend: You can use different blends such as cumin, green curry, coriander, red curry, turmeric, and red pepper. There are no rules. Use it as a table seasoning or to season vegetable, meat, or poultry soups, stews, and the like.

Fines herbes: This is a blend of delicate herbs (chervil, parsley, fennel, chives, oregano, basil, sage, tarragon, and saffron) that can be used with lighter soups, usually added just before serving or removing from the fire.

Herb coating: Coat fish or meat with a blend of garlic, paprika, peppers (white, black, red), thyme, and oregano. This can be used for making soups and stews.

Herbes de provence: This herb mix includes basil, thyme, lavender, and fennel. This can be used to add a light flavor to any kind of soup.

Italian herbal blend: This is a generic blend of basil, red pepper, oregano, rosemary, garlic, and thyme. Use this to season any kind of soup, stew, even pizza or bread.

Old bay herbal blend: This historic seasoning for all dishes includes cinnamon, paprika, cardamom, celery seed, ginger, bay leaf, mustard, pepper, mace, cloves, and nutmeg.

Poultry seasoning: This is a light blend of herbs such as marjoram, parsley, rosemary and sage. It is used to season poultry soups, but is also used for pork or fish soups and dishes.

Quatre epices (four spice blend): The blend of cloves, pepper, ginger, and nutmeg is perfect for stews and soups but also works with vegetables, pates, and sausages.

Vinegared herb: Heat (don’t boil) a quart of vinegar, let cool, and pour into a bottle or jar. Then, add about 4 ounces of fresh sage, thyme, tarragon or marjoram) Use to flavor any stock, stew, or soup.

PRO TIP: Woody herbs (such as thyme, rosemary, savory) are often too strong for uncooked soups. When using in cooked soups, first gently bruise or crush with your fingers and remove larger pieces before serving. For a stronger taste, chop and add just before removing the dish from the fire.

The 5 Types Of Soups You Must Know

Soup can be a dish by itself, or a part of a dish. Evidence of the oldest hot soup ever served was found in a cave in China dating back to 20,000 B.C. Since then, humans have created soups for its medicinal, religious, and nutritional values.

Did you know that there are thousands of different soup recipes from cultures around the world? To describe these types of soup, we can use five categories: clear, thick, cold, specialty, and ethnic.

1. Clear Soups

Definition: Clear soups are delicate, clear, with no thickeners or solids. To make a clear soup, simmer ingredients in liquid until all flavors are released.

Examples: The simplest versions of clear soups do not have any solids, spices, starch, oil, fats or additional flavorings. In addition, there are clear soups that include solids, such as onion soup and chicken noodle soup. Other examples are:

  • Stock: Broth, bouillon or fumets (fish stock) that can be served as is or used in other dishes.
  • Consomme: A stock soup rich in flavor. Egg whites are used to remove sediments or solids.

Use of herbs: Herbs used to flavor clear soups are removed before serving. For elegant presentation (plating) of soups, herbs may be used as a side garnish. In many cases, however, herbs are often used as toppings such as sliced chives sprinkled over chicken noodle soup. In this case, thin soup is best defined as transparent soup.

Common herbs used: The most common herbs used in clear soups include parsley, leeks, chives, lovage, celery seeds, dill, and chervil, to mention a few. Try out different herb combinations.

2. Thick Soups

Definition: Any soup that uses cream, vegetables, milk, wine, or starch (rice, potato, or taro root flour) to thicken the soup into velvety-like smoothness is called a thick soup. Thick soup is opaque compared to thin soup which is transparent.

Examples: Thick soups can be categorized into seven groups.

  • Bisque: After crushed crustacean shells (crabs, crayfish, langoustine, lobsters, shrimps, etc.) are boiled, strained and removed, the soup is seasoned and thickened. The crustacean meat is served as part of the soup.
  • Chowder: This is a thick soup or stew using either fish or clams and thickened with onions, potatoes, cream or milk, crushed biscuits or crackers, cornstarch slurry, or a roux (flour and fat cooked to thicken soups or sauces).
  • Cream soup: A cream soup can use any meat combinations. Before that, however, the soup itself is created by using stock, cream, milk, butter, salt and lard as well as herbs such as garlic, celery, pepper, and paprika.
  • Potage: The name comes from the French for “food cooked in a pot” and is its simplest definition. To create a potage-type of soup, stew, or porridge, boil any combination of meat or seafood, vegetables, fruits, and/or grains until a slurry or mush is formed. Flavor or season with salt, oil, and available herbs and spices.
  • Puree soup (potages purées): The main ingredient is broth or stock plus a pureed ingredient (meat, fruit, vegetable, etc.). You can use an electric blender, grinder, food press, or sieve until a creamy paste or liquid is created (examples: hummus, applesauce). For extra flavor, add herbs or spices.
  • Stew: Tough meats can be boiled with vegetables, herbs, and spices until the meat becomes tender and the other ingredients turn into gravy. The slow-cooking of meat can include seafood, beef, sausages, poultry, or any combination. Since herbs are thoroughly incorporated, an herb garnish may be used for plating.
How To Make Thick Soup

Thickeners: Aside from those mentioned, you should also know two common soup thickeners:

  • Veloute: The name comes from the French word for “velvety” and is simply a blend of roux and clear stock of chicken, veal or fish. The result is a sauce with butter, cream, fat, and flour. It is used to thicken a soup or a dish.
  • Bechamel: This is like a veloute, except that milk is used instead of clear stock.

Use of herbs: Herbs can be sliced, chopped, or pureed to flavor thick soups. The herbs are not removed before serving the soup. When used as garnish, an herb’s leaf can help identify the soup’s key herbal ingredient.

Common herbs used: The most popular herbs used in thick soups include spinach, watercress, parsley, dill, basil, winter savory, bay leaf, celery, cloves, and marjoram, to mention a few. Feel free to experiment.

3. Cold Soups

Definition: A cold soup can be the cooked or the uncooked type. Any soup that is served chilled or below room temperature is a cold soup. There are at least six types of cold soups.

  • Sweet soups: These are dessert soups made of fruit syrup or fruit purees. Sweet soups can be served as a snack or to end a meal. Examples are:
    • Chè (Vietnam): This is a cold dessert soup with sugar and coconut milk. Varieties include adzuki bean, cassava, durian, mung bean, jackfruit, and taro. Some versions include mint, lemongrass, or ginger.
    • Ginataan (Philippines): This hot or cold sweet soup includes coconut milk, fruits and tapioca pearls. Some recipes call for mint or ginger.
    • Shiruko (Japan): This is a cold bean and mochi soup that can be flavored with mugwort.
  • Semi-sweet soup: These are similar to sweet soups except that they have little or no sugar, and are enhanced with citrus or acidic elements from lemon, lime, or vinegar. Semi-sweet soups are often served as appetizers to start a meal. Example: tomato soup.
  • Savoury soups: Either cooked and raw, these are highly textured soups that are served as appetizers. Examples are gazpacho (a chilled soup made from raw vegetables blended together), consommé, pepper and fennel purée, vichyssoise (a chilled puree of leeks, potatoes, and cream), chilled roasted tomato soup, chilled minted pea purée, and cold curried carrot soup.
  • Fruit-and-vegetable soups: These are cold soups made from a blend of crushed or pureed vegetable and fruits.
  • Cream soups: These are cold soups that begin with a soup base thickened with velouté, béchamel, or a tuber such as potato, turnip, beet, yam, or taro purée.
  • Clear soups – These are cold soups made from a rich broth that is clarified by straining. It can also be thickened gelatin. Example: jellied consommé.

Use of herbs: When served in more formal or elegant settings, cold soups often include a topping or garnish of fresh herbs.

Common herbs used: Many cold soup recipes call for dill, celery, scallion, garlic, onion, shallot, parsley, tarragon, arugula, or ginger.

4. Specialty Soups

This is a category based on personal viewpoint, and not on soup ingredients.

Definition: Any soup that’s made by using unusual ingredients or methods is called a “specialty” soup.

Common herbs used: Here are some of the most common herbs used in specialty soups:

  • Cold cucumber cream soup: onion, garlic, dill, sumac, parsley
  • African peanut soup: chili, chard, curry, parsley, cilantro, garlic, ginger
  • Singapore turtle soup: bell pepper (red or green), packaged herbs
    including chervil, basil, lemon balm, marjoram, rosemary, sage, savoury, and thyme.
  • Louisiana gumbo: chard, kale, collards, mustard, watercress, dandelion, bell pepper, onion, celery
  • Cantonese snake soup: ginger, chrysanthemum, lemongrass, mushroom

5. Cultural or Ethnic Soups

Any soup that’s made with ingredients and cooking methods that are specific to a culture or country is called a cultural or ethnic soup. Again, this grouping is based on origin and not on ingredients.

You can find most of the main ingredients in cookbooks, but if you want to prepare a set of herbs before you start cooking or before you go shopping, ere are some examples:

  • Goulash (Hungary): bay leaves, caraway, garlic, oregano, onion, paprika, black pepper
  • Minestrone (Italy): chard, red onion, sage, garlic, celery, rosemary, paprika, bay leaf, basil, kale, red pepper
  • Soto Ayam (Indonesia): chili, basil, turmeric, lemongrass, lime leaves, cardamom, white pepper, ginger, coriander, candlenuts, bay leaves, garlic, cloves

  • Caldo Verde (Portugal): kale, black or white pepper, garlic cloves, onion
  • Zuppa di Ceci e Riso (Italy): onion, celery, garlic

Fresh Herbs or Dried Herbs?

When using herbs in soups, keep in mind that dried herbs are generally concentrated than fresh herbs.

  • Fresh herbs: I generally recommend adding fresh herbs as a garnish, about 20 minutes before serving. This will keep the original color.
  • Dried herbs: Dried herbs are more intense (sometimes slightly bitter) compared to fresh herbs. Use dried herbs at the start of cooking a recipe with long cooking time. This will intensify their flavor as well as allow other ingredients to absorb the flavor. The best flavor-retaining dried herbs are woody: rosemary, oregano, thyme, etc.
  • Delicate herbs: Basil, cilantro, parsley, dill, tarragon, and marjoram are examples of delicate herbs that should be added at the end of cooking time. When dried, they provide less flavor than when fresh.
  • Robust herbs: Sage, rosemary, parsley, oregano, and thyme are examples of herbs that should be added at the start of cooking a dish with long cooking time.
  • Substitution: According to Martha Stewart, a tablespoon of fresh herbs is equivalent to about one teaspoon of dried herbs. In other words, for 3 tsp of fresh herb is equivalent to about 1 tsp of dried herb. Add in small increments rather than too much, too soon.
