Whenever I make a pureed soup my significant other's feedback is "it needs substance" after some "it feels substantial" frustrations on my part, I realized that he meant - for lack of better terms - chunks. In the past I have dumped some pieces of rotisserie chicken, roasted potatoes, random roasted veggies in his soups and it has worked well. I don't cook - or eat - meat. And he eats what I cook or what he can order for delivery.
I want to make a roasted red pepper soup. Found a recipe I like, ready to go. Then I realize that this one, too, is pureed. No chunks.
If I want to add chunks ... for him ... easily ... any thoughts? Homemade croutons? Some sort of veggie?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts. Silly boys.
