Soup and Salad

Soup & Salad
Double-team boring menus with this winning cool-weather combo.

Fall means football to sports fans, but in the world of food, it marks the beginning of soup season. You can pack a pot with fresh organic vegetables, boost protein with a handful of legumes or sprinkle in a healthy helping of whole grains for a meal that is chock-full of good nutrition.

Soup’s weak link has often been its salt content, but that’s easy to remedy when you’re making your own. Use a homemade stock or ingredients like reduced-sodium broth, fresh vegetables, no-salt-added canned tomatoes and beans, and lots of flavorful herbs and spices. Control calories and fat by cutting back on ingredients like ham, bacon and cream.

Now it’s time to add the perfect complement: a crunchy fresh salad. Try one with the sweet taste of fruit to balance a savory soup or add nuts, seeds or cheese to boost the overall protein of your meal.

Make a big pot of soup on the weekend and let the flavors meld overnight. Paired with your choice of salad and a chewy whole grain bread, it scores a weeknight dinner touchdown.
