Apocalypse Soup Ideas
How to make soup more interesting during the apocalypse

How to Make Apocalypse Soup:
The prepper "soup of the day" can get a happy lift with savory
and sweet garnishes and toppings that are shelf stable. We've
also included a bonus list of topping ideas for preppers who are
lucky enough to have a garden.

Remember, too, that leftovers always make great soup toppings.
You may have cold potatoes, scraps of cheese, or boiled pasta or
leftover rice in your refrigerator, and thereby have the makings of
a wonderful new soup combination.

The time to prepare your garnishes is while your soup simmers.
Enjoy your apocalypse soup in wide-brimming bowls, which allow
your soup toppings to scatter in an appetizing array.



















Above, Irish Pub Cheddar Soup by Valley Food storage just needs a little
garnish of real bacon bits, cheddar shreds (stock freeze dried cheese) and
green onions or chives from your herb garden. It's thick and hearty.

Apocalypse Soup Combinations to Try...
Below are some soup toppings and garnish ideas are with
preppers in mind. They are shelf-stable ingredients that will add
variety to the prepper's pantry. You'll get bowled over with
excitement by these creative soup combinations:

  • Butternut squash soup topped with pinenuts and raisins.
    Or if you're lucky enough to have pomegranites growing, a
    tablespoon of seeds gives your butternut squash soup a
    healthy fall flavor.
  • Clam Chowder gets a mysterious boost from a topping of
    bacon bits!
  • Roasted Red Pepper soup gets a lift with Croutons and
    shaved Parmesan cheese.
  • Tomato soup pairs well with canned garbanzo beans. (See
    the Soup of the Day book by Williams and Sonoma, above
    left.)
  • French Onion Soup authentically requires a wedge of crusty
    French bread and two cheeses (Gruyère and Parmesan), but
    preppers can substitute with a combination of Croutons and
    shaved Parmesan cheese. (Parmesan is a good hard cheese
    and on the list of foods to keep in your fridge.)
  • Pumpkin soup with Croutons and shelled and toasted
    pumpkin seeds.
  • White Bean soup with olives and Croutons.
