It is still January and even though this year it has not been very cold soup is still a tasty meal. Soup can be nutritious, easy to prepare, and inexpensive. It can be great hot or cold, prepared with minimal clean-up, only needs one pot, and the combination of ingredients is unlimited. Soup is a great dish for a variety of palettes and can be tailored to be spicy, savory or sweet. January is National Soup Month, a good time to think about how soup can fit into a healthy eating plan. To help get your creative juices started here are some soup making tips to consider when making soup for you or your family.
