|Healthy soup with many ingredients.|
This is a soup I had made when the weather was still cool. Whenever I make a soup, I add whatever ingredients I have on hand. I start by first browning the beef or boiling the chicken. In this case, I made a chicken soup. I also love adding all kinds of ingredients.
|Healthy soup includes wet vegetable ingredients.|
I made the white rice separately. I opened the cans of tomato paste, corn, diced tomatoes, and mixed vegetables. I also added some frozen bell peppers. I had bought and cut the various colored bell peppers and had frozen them in their individual plastic baggies. Doing the cutting and storing into the freezer always cuts down on cooking.
|Healthy soup includes these dry spices.|
Spices add wonderful taste to soups. In the soup, I added lemon pepper, cumin seeds (which I placed in the used bottle of minced onions), salt, celery salt, garlic salt, and dried cilantro. Dried cilantro is good for detoxification. Cumin is a good source of iron and aids in digestion. Garlic helps the immune system.
|Healthy soups can be accompanied by other foods.|
Finally, I served myself. I put some of the white rice within my bowl of soup. I warmed up some corn tortillas. I added some lemon juice, which has vitamin C. The soup was delicious, and I definitely did not feel guilty eating it.
How about you, my readers? Do you like soups? Do you like to make soups? If so, what do you like to put in your soups? I hope you add lots of healthy ingredients.
