Soup can be a meal. It can also be a very inexpensive meal to make. With prices rising at the grocery store, you don't need to fall back on processed foods in order to feed your family. Soup can be a healthier choice and even for an inexperienced cook, it can be easy.
I often make pots of soup and freeze the broth for use in recipes or just to have on hand.
Homemade Chicken Broth is a great way to make the most out of an oven stuffer. Beef Stock is also easy to make and is the base for other soup recipes or just a quick beef noodle soup.
Soup can be healthy and even help you to lose weight.
