Easy Soup starter

When we think of making soup, we think twice because of the ingredients and time that is needed to make soup. If the soup starter is made ahead of time, then all you will need to do is add your favorite noodles.

With the soup starter being made ahead of time and frozen there will be no need to worry about cooking time. What better way to serve a youngster their favorite noodles in a healthy soup broth with a few veggies added to it.

If you decide to serve right away, just add noodles and cook until noodles are done.

Making a large quantity of vegetable soup stock

Making a soup stock or a soup starter

  1. Having soup stock or a soup starter available when needed will save a lot of time. Soup stock can be used in many recipes in place of water. You are able to control the amount of salt and additives your family consumes, which will provide them with a healthier meal.
  2. The soup starter is made with bite size vegetables that are meant to be eaten with the soup and noodles added if desired. Therefore there is no need to discard the vegetables.
  3. You are able to control what goes into your soup.
  4. Less salt.
  5. No additives.
  6. No sugar
  7. No coloring

Soup Anytime

Have you ever thought of having soup for breakfast or taking your soup to work for lunch? We all want to eat healthier so why not have soup for breakfast? It is the most nutritious meal that you can prepare for yourself or family members.

Soup can be eaten at anytime of the day if you choose to do so. I love Ramen Noodles as much as children do.One way to get all the nutrients into a one dish meal is to make your own soup. It could be meatless with all veggies if you like. Whatever your favorite veggies are, that is what you would put into it and enjoy, without guilt.

Which do you prefer?

      Thanks for the comment and up. Try freezing your soup starter in ice cube trays and then placing cubes into plastic

      bags and into the freezer, ready for one or two servings of instant soup.
