Full Answer

To correct a soup with too much thyme, add extra broth, coconut milk, cream or water to dilute the extra thyme. By increasing the soup's volume, the extra thyme is spread out and becomes less overpowering. Another solution is to add neutral grains such as rice or beans to the soup to help soak up the extra flavor.
