Serving Suggestions

  1. For a richer soup, use milk instead of water to adjust consistency.
  2. For a creamy vegetable sauce, use milk instead of water for an excellent topping on fresh vegetables such as yellow squash, green beans, asparagus or your favorite.
  3. To thicken consistency of soup or sauce, add bread crumbs and/or grated sharp cheddar cheese.
