Canned soup is an easy and convenient solution when you do not have time in your day to cook a homemade meal. Most canned soup doesn’t call for you to add anything into it, not even water! Simply open the can, pour the soup into a pot, and cook over your stove according to the instructions provided on the label.
If that doesn't seem easy enough, you can even just open the can of soup, pour it into a microwave safe bowl, pop it in the microwave and heat it according to the instructions provided on the label, and it’s ready to eat! When canned soup first came out there weren’t many different soups to choose from, and they were all high in sodium and calories.
Today canned soup comes in almost every flavor and type of soup you can think of! The amount of calories and sodium has even been greatly reduced in most canned soups.
