Cooking & 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 1 1/2 cups chopped, fresh or frozen carrots or cauliflower with the soup mix.
  • For creamy texture, add broth and mash vegetables into the soup as they cook (or use hand immersion blender to puree).
  • To boost whole grains, and to further thicken soup, add 1 cup quick oatmeal in final 10 minutes of cooking. Puree soup with hand immersion blender.
  • To give a Mediterranean twist, add 3/4 lb. shrimp or cut up, firm white fish in final 5 minutes of cooking. For Inventive Variations suggestions on the package or website, garnish each serving with a dollop of nonfat, plain Greek yogurt or sliced avocados rather than crumbled feta, blue or Parmesan cheese.
  • To cut saturated fat, substitute low-fat buttermilk for cream.
  • To cut sodium, prepare with no salt added tomato puree and low sodium broth. To cut sodium further, substitute water for half of the broth.
  • To cut added sugar, prepare with 1 tablespoon instead of 2 tablespoons brown sugar.
  • For added protein: add a can of your favorite bean (black, chickpea, navy, etc), chicken breast, or other plant-based protein option.
