How do you make your own soup?

Once you've decided on what ingredients to use, making soup is very simple:
  1. Heat a large soup pot over medium heat.
  2. Sauté your aromatic vegetables (onion, garlic, celery, carrot) in your fat.
  3. Cook your meat if necessary (for example, stew beef)
  4. Add your base (except milk or cream), veggies, meat, and spices.
