Hola! Seeking simple swaps or tricks to boost its nutritional profile without sacrificing flavor? 🥦🥕 Let's dive into some creative ways to enhance the goodness of your soup and make it even more satisfying!
Load up on the veggies! I love adding chopped carrots, celery, onions, and even leafy greens like kale or spinach. You can replace some of the barley with brown rice or quinoa for extra fiber and nutrients. Instead of relying on salt, I add herbs like thyme, rosemary, or bay leaves for extra flavor. A splash of lemon juice can brighten things up too. 🙂✨😉👍
Adding a handful of spinach or kale into your soup can bump up its nutrition without changing the taste much. Try swapping regular pasta with whole grain pasta for extra fiber. Also, using low-sodium broth and fresh herbs instead of salt can make your soup healthier. Have you tried any of these swaps before?
