Baby it’s cold outside! When temperatures drop, we all love a comforting bowl of soup. With a couple of simple tweaks, you can turn a simple dish into a hearty, vegie-packed meal using store bought soups as a base. Canned or packaged soup is a family dinner winner — convenient, comforting and low cost. Grab a can or packet and try one of these ideas to create something special:
1. Serve lighter soups with a side of mashed avo on wholegrain toast.
2. Add chickpeas, lentils or canned beans to boost the hunger-busting protein content.
3. Include a handful of vibrant greens, such as baby spinach, broccolini or frozen peas.
