Nutrition Tips

Remember these are soup-starter mixes, you can't go wrong! Feel free to omit any of our recommended additions and/or add any of your favorites!

  • To boost vegetables, add 2 cups chopped carrots with the squash.
  • To cut saturated fat, use 2 tablespoons vegetable oil instead of butter to sauté onion and butternut squash and carrots.
  • To cut sodium prepare with low sodium broth. To cut sodium further, substitute water for half of the broth.
  • To cut added sugars, prepare with 100% orange juice and go for mandarins canned or packed in 100% juice or water. Like adding wine to a stew, orange juice adds a touch of sweetness.
  • For added protein: add a can of your favorite bean (black, chickpea, navy, etc), chicken breast, or other plant-based protein option.
