New Nutrition Tips:
- To boost vegetables, add 1 cup additional mushrooms and 1/2 cup each sliced celery and carrots when sautéing mushrooms in first step of the recipe. Or to vary vegetables, along with the additional cup of mushrooms try adding 1 cup chopped bok choy or frozen green lima beans.
- To boost whole grains, add 1/2 cup whole grain quinoa with soup mix and an additional cup of water.
- To give a Mediterranean twist, in final 5 minutes of cooking time add 12 ounces cut up salmon or firm white fish as substitute for optional ground beef.
- To cut saturated fat, prepare with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and 1 tablespoon butter rather than 2 tablespoons butter to sauté vegetables. Skip optional ground beef or prepare with extra lean ground beef. For the Inventive Variations suggestion on the website and package, prepare with 1 pound extra lean ground beef or turkey rather than veal or pork blend.
- To cut sodium, prepare with low sodium broth. To cut sodium further, substitute water for half of the broth.
For a delicious mushroom meatloaf, blend soup mix with 2 beaten eggs and 1/4 to 1/2 cup tomato juice or beef broth. Add 1 1/2 to 2 lbs ground beef or beef/veal/pork blend and thoroughly mix by hand. Shape into an oblong and bake at 350°F in a meatloaf pan for 1 hour. Slice and serve.
