One of my all time favorite food whatever season we’re in is… SOUP.
It’s one of the more versatile food that I can think of that can be served as part of your supper, lunch or as a snack. Soup is a complete meal in itself, as I usually cook mine with a combination of meat and vegetables. I prefer homemade soup but have also use store bought ones in last minute situations.
Sugar is one of the common ingredients in our food and yes, you can find it in soup. To promote a healthier lifestyle, we’ve been asked to cut down on our sugar consumption. So what other natural and healthy alternatives to sugar can we use in our soup?
Cooking and learning from family and friends, I have discovered that carrots, sugar cane or radishes are good alternatives and can enhance the sugar/salt balance in soup. Try using them the next time you’re cooking soup.
