Tips and Tricks to Get the Best Healthy Soup
- Make a double batch or freeze the leftovers: Soup is the perfect dish to meal prep or save for a rainy day. You can always make a little more to save for an extra serving or two, or just go ahead and make a double batch to freeze and reheat. It will come in handy on those days when you don’t have a lot of time or just don’t feel like cooking.
- Add in your favorite protein: Veggie based soups like tomato soup are delicious but can sometimes leave you feeling a little hungry. Try adding in your favorite protein like leftover shredded chicken to make things a bit more hearty and increase the protein content.
- Don’t be afraid to customize: There is so much room for opportunity to customize when it comes to soup. Try switching up the proteins, adding in more vegetables, or trying different seasonings and spices. As always, a recipe is just a starting point. Do not be afraid to make it work for you.
- Pair it with your favorite sandwich: Another way to make things a bit more filling is to serve your soup with your favorite sandwich. You can never go wrong with grilled cheese.
