Obviously you COULD make your own soup. Starting from scratch means you can have the exact flavour you fancy or that you can use up that bunch of veg that you don’t know what else to do with. But no one ALWAYS had the time for farting around in the kitchen. And although vegan tinned soup options are available, there is an easy way to create new flavours without starting from scratch.
Here are some ways you can add a little something extra to your shop bought soup to make more of a hearty meal.
Cream up your tomato soup
Make your tomato soup ‘creamy’ with a simple nutritional addition.
Splash of spice in your lentil soup
Turn a tin of Heinz lentil soup into a tasty dahl in seconds.
Just add around a teaspoon of curry powder of your preferred hotness to a tin of soup as it warms through. Serve with a blob of mango chutney and a sprig of coriander! Eat with pitta for an extra Indian twist.
Veg soup can be a bit meh. So turn in into a speedy stew by throwing in half a tin of kidney beans and half a tin of chickpeas (a whole tin of each for two people)
