Going to the store is a lot more efficient if you start an ongoing grocery list for soup recipe ingredients. Our permanent grocery list contains ingredients for several cabbage soup recipes. Fresh vegetables, meat, beans and spices make up the bulk of the list; cheaters like broth and Lipton soup are included too. Before you make up a grocery list of soup ingredients, consider how to make soup a part of your meal plan. As we mentioned at the outset, we’ve invited guests to the site to write in with their recipes.
Anthony Pierpont writes in with his Soup Tip Ingredients: Read recipes in cookbooks or online to select the best soup recipes for your family:
- Miso is an excellent quick mix to have on hand; I’m including my favorite miso soup recipe below;
- Lipton soup is a great addition to the pantry, use it to make easy soup recipes and to dress up any soup recipe, too;
- Cabbage soup recipes call for leeks and cabbage, a couple of items you probably don’t buy often;
- Potato soup recipes make a hearty meal for your crew- pick up instant potatoes in addition to fresh ones to make our version;
- French onion soup is a long-standing favorite for kids and adults in our family- you’ll need beef stock, a couple of cheeses and, of course, lots of onions to make our yummy version.
Whether you like Lipton soup, cabbage soup recipes or potato soup recipes, your grocery list helps you find out how to make soup a part of your daily diet.
West Coast Gourmet Eating Trends: Enjoy Miso Soup- for Breakfast.
Samuel Fukuzaki writes in: A new trend out west is nothing but an old trend from Japan: eating high-protein “suppers” any time of day. You might not like sushi in the a.m., but how about a nice cup of miso broth on cold and blustery morning? The protein in the tofu will get you through your early morning-meetings or trips to daycare with energy to spare. Heart healthy and extremely tasty, miso broth makes an elegant side dish for any meal.
