You are here: dishsoupsthickened soups




Cream soups are thickened soups. Just like velouté soups they are made from a liason sweated in fat, stock and a cooked main ingredient that is responsible for the flavour. Real cream soups are always finished with cream only. See also Preparation of velouté soups.

Where the thickener of a soup is also the flavour-imparting main ingredient, the typical taste is maintained best when the soup is finished with cream. Thickening and at the same time flavour-imparting are oats, barley, Grünkern (unripe spelt), semolina and pearl barley.
