Canned Soup with Fresh Vegetables

Number served:

Ingredients:

  • canned soup (any of your favorites) - 1 serving
  • Optional: broccoli (raw and chopped) - 1/4 cup
  • Optional: carrots (raw and chopped) - 1/4 cup
  • Optional: brussels sprouts (raw and chopped) - 1/4 cup
  • Optional: celery (raw and chopped) - 1/4 cup

Directions:

This is one of my favorite lunches that is easy to prepare, tastes great, and is healthy because of the fresh vegetables. Start by filling a covered sauce pan about 1/2 inch with water and place over medium to high heat. Starting with the 'tougher' vegetables first finely chop the vegetables and add to the water. Cover the sauce pan and cook for about 5 minutes, then add the canned soup and heat just until everything reaches a boil.
