  • Have to also agree it is much healthier to make soup homemade instead of can soup. - 1/4/2015 3:57:21 PM
  • I also don't understand why we aren't encouraged on this post to make our own soups. It's so inexpensive and the results are so much healthier and better-tasting. It's also a great way to use up leftovers. My motto is "Ban the can"! - 1/3/2015 9:28:47 PM

    I have to join with the posters who are disappointed with the use of canned soups on this site. We are supposed to be way beyond that at this stage. And as pointed out, homemade is awesome plus super easy and better for us. - 1/3/2015 5:11:27 PM

    I've been making Frontier brand soups. They include some very healthy choices, and also gluten free ones, as well as vegetarian varieties. The "kit" includes the main ingredient, be it lentils, peas, beans, pasta, along with a spice packet. You add the broth, the protein, like chicken or chicken sausage or beef, and some fresh ingredients like onion or diced tomatoes or fresh spinach. The results are a fantastic soup. Some can also be prepped and put into a crock pot to cook through. I have stopped buying canned soups all together for some of the reasons that others are mentioning above, although I did grow up on a few of the canned varieties like Progresso. I have found Frontier brand in some grocery stores, but you can also get them online. They have other products as well to go along with their soups. - 1/3/2015 7:47:44 AM
  • I like to make a big pot of soup one day, eat little of it that day. Put it in the frig overnight. It is so much better the next day when the flavors have blended better. - 1/3/2015 5:52:39 AM
  • Once I learned how to make my own soup I have not went back! Think about the problems with canned soup, you have no control over the ingredients and you have a can that may or may not get recycled. I would rather make my own! I just recently learned how to make bone broth, and although as a vegetarian I would never consume it, I do make dishes with it for my partner. Cooking from scratch is not really that hard, just most people do not want to bother. - 12/29/2014 11:39:00 AM

  • I do not like canned soups, soup is not that hard to make and you have more control over what is in your soup, some easy soups are tomato, french onion and any vegetable based soup. - 10/24/2014 11:09:42 AM

    I agree with several of you and by making your own soup you know what all the ingredients are without a lot of processed additives that can derail health and weight loss. It's so easy to put all the ingredients in a slow cooker in the morning before starting your day. - 10/24/2014 8:29:46 AM
  • I was kind of disappointed when I got to the end of the article and, instead of finding a link to healthy soup recipes finding a list of canned soups. I never buy canned, always make from scratch. Soup is pretty easy to make in a crockpot and great to come home to. - 10/24/2014 7:18:51 AM

    When I am short on time, I buy Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato soup from a discount grocer. I keep trying to duplicate it's fresh taste to cut down on the salt. - 10/9/2014 10:19:33 AM

    I also love making soup at home. But I do disagree with the one comment that it's quicker than opening a can. Some soups come together relatively quick, but some of mine cook all day. Many recipes really underestimate the amount of time it takes for the flavors to really come together. - 9/8/2014 1:34:29 PM
