The history of soup is as old as the history of cooking. The act of combining several ingredients in a large pot to create a nutritious, stuffed, easy to digest food, easy to make, serving food was inevitable. This made it the perfect choice for both sedentary and itinerant cultures, the rich and the poor, healthy people and the disabled.
Soups are a great nutritional choice, providing us with many important nutrients, including vitamins and minerals for relatively few calories. Soup can be a simple addition to any meal and a great way to make sure you and your family get the essential portions of whole grains, vegetables and protein in a bowl.
