Lumpy Milk?

HI

I was cooking some tomato soup and the milk got a little lumpy. Is it still ok to eat it?

Assuming it wasn't lumpy when you put it in, it's OK. The heat and acidity of the soup caused the milk to separate. You can puree the soup to get rid of the lumps.

To avoid that next time try adding a little heavy cream instead of milk.

I always use a Wire Wisk when adding the milk to the soup.

Always make sure your soup DOES NOT boil
