How crazy is tinned soup?

When we are running out of oil and resources like tin, and short of money how crazy is tinned soup?

Soup has to be one of the cheapest, and easiest meals, yes meal, to make. And really nutritious, yet whole aisles are set aside for tinned soup.

Yes, we are busy and have a sub conscious comfort zone for certain varieties of tinned soup. But look at the price next time, and the list of ingredients.

Some are saltier than sea water.

A big saucepan of soup can feed a family and the remains put in the fridge for another day. You can even hide the ‘leftover’ by adding some new ingredients as you heat it up.

If you are a confident chef just get stuck in, and boil some chopped veg with a stock cube or two. If not, or a gastronome, dig out a recipe. Or add one to our KIS (Keep it Simple) Cookery video channel.

And next time you are at one of those big shops, you can give a smug look at the other shoppers with tinned soup in their trollies.
