add parmesan rind to soup for extra flavor

did you know you could throw parmesan rinds into soups and sauces for a little flavor oomph? add it to anything you would normally sprinkle with parmesan anyway. just don't forget to dish out the melted rind blob before you serve it up.

wrap the rinds in foil and toss them in the freezer until need be.

Hahah. I agree watching Giada is like watching soft porn, but not for the same reasons. I just love watching her show because everything looks so damn delicious. I guess you could say food is my porn.

I love this little tip about Parmesan rinds. Very useful!

I just put a rind in the freezer the other day! They add this creaminess to soups that I love. I did learn that from Giada as well. I adore her cooking!

Brooklyn said...

Agreed - G needs to be in a sweater turtle neck year round :)

hilarious! let me know when you find out what cranberry beans are?! WTF?

Kim said...

I learned this tip at a cheese-tasting class I took a few months ago, but have yet to try it. Your soup looks amazing. And I have no idea what cranberry beans are either . . .

Gosh, this sounds incredible. Just told my mom and she's like, wait, I like eating the rind ;)

Jill said...

Totally agree about Giada! Seriously, put them away!

rebecca said...

rebecca-
i've never heard of anyone eating it before!

Elizabeth Harwell said...

hahaha... love this. i say what the what about most ingredients. per example... a parmesan rind. yep, googled it. this lady buys her cheese really classy-like: in bags.

rebecca said...

lib-
you gotta toss the bags. i love that you googled parmesan rinds. i also love that you shared this fact with me.

Nice lookin' soup, lady!

Gloria said...

Giada's overly exuberant pronunciation of certain Italian words cracks me up :-) This looks so deeelicious - must try making this soon!

rebecca said...

gloria-
yes! spot on.

Marissa said...

Son of uhhhh! I threw mine away yes.ter.day. after grating it in pasta. Now my mouth is watering and I want your soup.

Love this recipe, but love the Giada comment more.

Kayla Poole said...

hahaha giada. love her, but her perma-smile sometimes freaks me out.

Brandi {not your average ordinary} said...

Oh, Giada is most definitely brilliant. I have one of her pasta cookbooks and each recipe is so homey. I'm going to start working through my parmesan so I can get to that rind.

Chessa! said...

this looks delicious. I will have to try it as my winter comfort food. I always end up making the same soup and this one with cheese? yes, please.

btw, I'd love to meet you if you're around on Thursday, jan 26th. a small collection of my work is up on the wall over at a little place called the bari studio in tribeca on leonard between hudson and w. bdwy. it's from 6 to 8 and I'll be sharing all the details on my blog this week...hope you can make it:)

ashley said...

Niki MyScandinavianHome said...

YUM! Looks scrummy! Would definitely warm up a cold Swedish day.

Josie said...

Oh my gosh this looks so delicious. And when I can eat parmesan again, I'm remembering this.

Lauren said...

I love soup season. But, cranberry beans?

tinajo said...

Oh yum - looks delicious! :-)

Tiffany said...

Hahaha that's funny! I haven't watched her in ages, but I bet next time I watch her, that's all I'll see! That soup looks amazingly delicious. I didn't know about the parmesan rinds... Thanks for the tip!

Rachael said...

GENIUS!

Its such a great tip, Nigel Slater swears by it.

my husband laughs about my stash of Parmezan rinds and my butter wrappers for buttering cake tins.
