Top 5 Sensational Soup Additions

Soup it Up this Season

Have you heard of adding chocolate to chili?

Is it nuts to add almonds to tomato soup?

What about coconut milk in your chicken noodle?

At our store, we’re souping it up this winter with tips, tricks and weekly deals to help you build a better bowl. Plus, we have all the sides to make your meal amazing.

Here are some of our favorites:

Chocolate Chili

Chocolate is added to chili for the same reason it is added to Mole’ sauce: it lends body, color, and flavor. A typical recipe calls for two squares of bittersweet chocolate or one to two tablespoons of cocoa powder. Either will give your chili a wonderful flavor boost. Chocolate can be added to almost any recipe including this one from Full Circle Market.

Coconut Curry Chicken Noodle

Chicken noodle soup is a winter-time favorite that warms the heart and soul. Put a spin on the classic with coconut milk and curry. One to one and a half cans of coconut milk and two tablespoons of curry make for an absolutely delicious change up.

Sweet Potato Soup with Blackberry Sauce

Sweet potatoes are seeing a rise in popularity due to their health benefits and flavor. Blackberry sauce is the perfect complement to the silky, smooth taste of sweet potatoes. Simply stir in a spoonful to two to taste and your bowl will be ready to go.

Tomato Soup with Almonds

Almonds are the most popular nuts in the United States. A favorite of health nuts and fitness fanatics, almonds have become famous for their versatility and health benefits. The unique nutrient combination of almonds — plant-based protein, fiber and monounsaturated fats, plus key nutrients like vitamin E and magnesium — help make them a welcome addition to most diets. Adding a handful of sliced almonds to your favorite tomato soup will add texture, nutrients and flavor.

Green Pea Soup with Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is known for its calciumpotassiumprotein, zinc, and vitaminsB6 and B12. Adding a half cup of plain, low-fat Greek yogurt to green pea soup provides creaminess without the calories of heavy cream.

Leftover Lovers

Many leftovers make great additions to either homemade or store-bought soups. Rice, leftover vegetables, last-night’s pasta or leftover chicken, beef or pork can all add nutrients and flavor to your cold-weather classics.

Ramped-Up Ramen

Ramen noodles, yes, the college-student’s standby, has seen a satisfying resurgence of late. While there are dozens of ways to put a twist on ramen, one of our favorites is to add a sesame peanut sauce. As the noodles cook, put sesame oil, peanut butter, honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, minced garlic, and grated ginger in a bowl.  Relieve some stress by giving the mixture a good whisking until it becomes a smooth, consistent sauce. Mix it in the soup and you’ll cure your craving for takeout in a jiffy.

Ice Cream Soup

Okay, this might be a stretch, but hear us out. You know those last few spoonfuls of ice cream, the ones that typically signal the end of your splurge? Rather than go for another bowl, simply add freshly chopped frozen fruit for a frozen treat that can’t be beat. One of our favorites is raspberry lemonade sherbet from Red Button Vintage Creamery. It’s tart flavor partners with fruit add ins for a “soup” that truly satisfies. Here are some other flavors to consider

All About Berries!

We all like to get our money’s worth when we buy something from a store or go out to eat at a restaurant. But how about getting your calories worth from your food?  Berries are the superstar of making the most of your calories. Berries are low in calories but high in nutrients and are sweet and delicious; almost like dessert. Berries are in their peak season during summer, but thanks to your local grocery store they can be enjoyed all year long.

Cool with Blue: At only 57 calories a cup, blueberries give you serious power and taste without the high calorie price. Blueberries have extremely high levels of antioxidants (such as vitamin C), as well as folate, magnesium, and fiber. They also contain a high amount of potassium. Blueberries can lower you risk of heart disease as well as act as an anti-inflammatory. Instead of handing kids a pack of candy when they are hungry, try giving them blueberries. Want to take it up a notch? Eat them with yogurt or nuts.

 Black Attack: Blackberries in the summer are sweet and delicious and only 43 calories per cup. Yes you read correctly, 43 calories. That one cup contains 5 grams of fiber and lots of antioxidants. Ever wondered why they are so dark? That’s due to the anthocyanins they contain. Anthocyanins are a powerful phytonutrient that can help prevent cancer. Put down that donut you grabbed for breakfast and try a bowl of blackberries. Want to take it up a notch? Throw them on top of oatmeal.

Get ahead with Red: This fragile yet delicious summer berry is full of vitamin C and seven grams of fiber per serving. At only 52 calories per serving it’s hard to say no, and luckily you don’t have to because your body will thank you for picking this power fruit for a snack. Raspberries are rich in antioxidants which supports heart health, and can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Craving something sweet after dinner? Try having a bowl of fresh raspberries. (For an extra sweet treat drizzle a little cream on top.)

The Power Berry: Who doesn’t love strawberries? With their juicy and delicious taste it’s easy to see why strawberries are the most popular berry and one of the most popular fruit varieties in the United States. In a one cup serving, strawberries tout only 50 calories and 85 milligrams of vitamin C. These power berries can help to improve blood levels and are a great source of potassium. Need a pre workout snack? Skip the high-calorie bar and enjoy a whole bowl of strawberries. Want to take it up a notch? Eat them with cottage cheese.

Celebrate Earth Day!

The first Earth Day started in 1970 after a Senator from Wisconsin, Gaylord Nelson, saw the damage done by a massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California in 1969.

Earth Day is now honored by 184 different countries and is a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness about taking care of the earth we live on. We have come up with five awesome ways to celebrate Earth Day.
