I am a soup snob. There, I’ve said it and it is true. I don’t like soup out of a can. I never use to even eat soup, unless I made it myself. (Snob) Not Campbells, Progresso, just-like-home made, none of it.
Then one day I received a newsletter from my health insurance carrier. Inside the newsletter was a recipe for 9 Can Vegetable Soup with the advertisement: Try this simple and delicious vegetable soup
I scanned the list of “cans” and wasn’t interested until I saw this nutritional info.
Servings per recipe 12
Total Fat: 0.8 g
Cholesterol: 2.4 mg
Sodium 602.9: mg
Total Carbs: 25.9g
Dietary Fiber: 4.9g
In my book those stats make for a pretty healthy main dish. I also started thinking about the convenience of keeping these 9 cans on the pantry shelf and having a meal ready in the flash of a can opener! During the holidays — after a long day at work, a super long day shopping, an ever-so-late dinner after picking up the kids, attending at least one ball game on the way home and still having homework to do. These 9 cans can sit on the pantry shelf and are easily dumped into the crock pot in the dark of the early morning. Oh, but what about the taste? That is after all, MY priority.
I bought the cans, opened them up (in about 5 minutes) and placed them in my crock pot. I cooked the soup on low for 8 hours. Oh my gosh, what a surprise! You are going to have to just trust me that this soup will rival any homemade. Buy the cans, sit them on the shelf — then make this soon! You won’t be sorry.
