Canned soups are a pantry staple. They come in clutch when you don’t want to cook yet another meal or you simply need something to curb your hunger fast. But despite their incredible convenience, there is something we can all probably agree on: they’re incredibly boring. Not only do many canned soups lack flavor (except for salt), but they also can be a bit stingy with their protein and fiber sources (meaning you don’t stay full for long after heating one up). You don’t have to force your way through bland soups to get by—and that goes for both premade canned soups and those simple homemade soups you’ve been throwing together in minutes using canned foods.
1. Add A Splash Of Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, lemon juice—anything will work. Soups are heavy in salt and fat, and vinegar is the essential ingredient that balances everything out and makes your soup taste 100% better. It’s like a magic ingredient. Seriously—try it. Grab your bottle of apple cider vinegar, and get to splashing.
