  • To boost vegetables, add 1½ cups chopped leeks with soup mix, and/or 1½ cups fresh or frozen green beans or green peas in final ten minutes of cooking. 
  • To boost whole grains, serve soup with crusty whole wheat bread instead of croutons. 
  • To cut saturated fat and sodium, halve the amount of bacon and prepare with lower sodium, bacon as substitute for regular bacon and meaty ham bone, or substitute 1/2 pound extra lean ground turkey plus either add 1/2 -1 teaspoon chipotle chile pepper spice or 1/2 teaspoon chili powder , or go Vegetarian.
