over- salted food

If you have over-salted a soup or another dish, you can easily fix this culinary blunder. When you over-salt soup, add some noodles or vegetables, and they will bear the excess salt. Naturally, the soup should boil and simmer for ten minutes.

Another option is to put some rice in a cloth bag, tie it and drop it in the soup. The soup should boil fifteen minutes and the rice will absorb the salt, and it will be caught and it will be a nice garnish.


You can add diced potatoes in the soup or dish you've salted. They will absorb the excess salt. If you need to quickly fix salted soup, add one egg white to the boiling broth. When it curdles, remove the pieces with a spoon.

In dish or soup, you can put a cloth bag in which you put a tip of bread. This bag must remain in the hot soup or stew for ten minutes, and then go out.
