New Nutrition Tips:
- To boost vegetables, add 1 cup diced potato and/or cauliflower with soup mix. In final 10 minutes of cooking, add 1 cup diced red pepper and/or 1 cup diced celery.
- To boost whole grains, add ½ cup quick-cooking brown rice or ½ cup whole grain quinoa, and 1 cup water with soup mix.
- To give a Mediterranean twist, prepare with 12 ounces shrimp, scallops, or cut up salmon, cod or other fish and add during final 10 minutes of cooking time.
- To cut saturated fat, puree 1 can plain, no salt added corn kernels until creamy and substitute for cream. Or mix 1/2 cup plain potato flakes (instant mashed potatoes) with ½ cup nonfat milk and substitute for cream. Use plain instant potato flakes with no sauce, no salt added or sugar added.
- To cut sodium, prepare with low sodium broth. To cut sodium further, substitute water for half of the broth.
For a cold variation, simmer soup according to original cooking instructions for 30 minutes. Cool completely on stovetop. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. Puree soup in a food processor, food mill, or with a hand mixer. Stir in cream. Garnish with fresh snipped dill!
Clam Chowder Recipe Variation:
Add 1-2 cans drained clams for the last five minutes of cooking time.
