    I love soup, why is the can soup have so much soduim in it!!!!! This is why I try and make my own.

    agree with others. NO canned soup for me .... I went to this article expecting homemade soups. They are so easy. This fall i have discovered quick, easy, great soups in the pressure cooker! Home made veg soup in less than 10 min.

    I cannot believe I was led to a site that recommends can soup. this site must be supported by them. but of course that must be it. It's a commercial site. It's ok just be aware.

    Very disappointed in this as I came here looking for fresh ideas. I mean, who eats 1/2 can of soup? So, do be sure to double the calories, fat grams and, most especially, the salt on the label if you consume the entire can of soup.

    Here's one idea: Break up a head of cauliflower, cook until softened it in just enough broth to cover it, puree cauliflower and liquid with an immersible blender, and throw in whatever herbs and spices you like best (try curry!). It's simple, filling, extremely nutritious, and filling to boot.

  • Forget the soup aisle - it's the easiest thing ever to make at home, and a great food for batch cooking. Nothing better than hot soup in cold weather! I swear by Crescent Dragonwagon's soup cookbook http://www.amazon.com/Dairy-Hollow-House-B

    Yes, we should be making our own soups, especially with national Soup Swap day approaching on Jan 24. It's a great time to get your friends and neighbors together for some nutritious fun!

    Check out the website:

    The sodium alone content would make me run from any of these canned soups.
  • CHRISTINE1970
    Have to also agree it is much healthier to make soup homemade instead of can soup.
  • 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"!

    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.

    I also should add that I don't work for frontier. I'm a social worker...

    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.
