Wednesday’s Helping: Soup Enhancements

Veggies to the rescue
Soups can really get a bad rap for their sodium content and lack of real veggies unless they’re a veggie soup. Why not add more pureed vegetables to your favorite soup recipes to make them more nutritious? For example, replace a cup of soup broth liquid with an equal amount of pureed tomatoes in your next pot of minestrone. Also, try stirring in spinach leaves or chopped broccoli into traditional clam chowder. Finally, next time you get a craving for corn chowder, make it healthier by adding chopped cauliflower instead of potato pieces. Can you think of other ways of inserting or substituting more vegetables into the soups that you love?
