Kitchen Tip Tuesday: Quickly Cool Soup

With lots of little mouths in our household, we've tried many ways of quickly cooling down hot soup. Stick the bowl in the freezer for a few minutes, pile in a few (or many) ice cubes, dish out those bowls 10 minutes before it's time to sit for dinner...there are a lot of ways to get to the goal of perfectly warm-but-not-scalding soup.  

Our favorite method of cooling down soup for our toddlers is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

One: Make extra rice and save it in the fridge. When it's time to eat, and the soup is hot, spoon some cold rice into the bowl. or have your child spoon it in!

Two: Ladle hot soup over top of the cold rice.

Three: Stir together and serve to your little ones!  The hot soup warms the rice, and the cold rice cools the soup to the perfect temperature.  The soup isn't watered down by a handful of ice cubes, and hungry kiddos don't have to sit and wait for the soup to become just right. Easy as 1,2,3!
