Quick tip: What to do after over-salting a pot of soup?


(Photo: Internet)

Soups are one of the best treats, warm and comfy foods in cold winter days. They’re flavorful, nutritious and simple to do, that’s the reason why I’ve craved for them since the beginning of the winter ^^ But have you ever over-salted your pot of soup? Instead of adding more broth or fresh water in your pot which I don’t like at all because it will reduce the sweetness of the original soup, today I will present to you a super fast tip to solve that problem.

So here’s the tip: drop in your pot of soup a peeled potato, it will absorb the excess salt and your soup won’t come out too salty (and the dropped potato tastes great anw ^^). And when it comes to Caramelized Braised Pork or any braised dish, my Asian tip is dropping in some chunks of white radish, they will not only reduce the saltiness of the dish but also match really well in flavors, in my country, we even have a dish called Caramelized Pork Belly with White Radish 😉

I hope you will find this tip helpful and happy cooking,

See you in the next post,

Love, Trang Quynh

    I would’ve thought you’d dilute it with water. I suppose that dilutes the flavours, too, though. Thanks for a great tip! 🙂
