Cannellini beans and Spinach with Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup

Cannellini beans and Spinach with Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup

 

 

Time for some delicious, top quality ingredients, all white chicken meat, and antibiotic free Progresso Light Chicken noodle soup that I jazzed up a bit. When I say jazzed up, I mean I added beans and fresh spinach to make this soup even more heavenly. The other night I went to Walmart to grab a few things along with Progresso Light Chicken Noodles Soup to have when I need quick, healthy lunch or dinner choice and obviously, a bit of comfort.

Like most people on this planet we want to be fit and in shape, so eating this hearty, delicious and a great quality ingredient soup will definitely help me get to my goal sooner without starving myself. I love Progresso soup and there are a variety of delightful and healthy choices, but chicken noodle soup holds a special place in my heart. Why you might ask? Since I have grown up eating chicken noodle soup before a supper practically each and every day and that was an absolute necessity, no questions ask. On top of it, it is really super good for you.

I think it’s just amazing to get childhood memories and transfer them onto your own kids, making a tradition and memories for them as well. Walmart is always well stocked up, so why not shop where I know I can find it easily without any problems.


This is one of my favorite recipes to change this delectable soup into something other than what’s expected. It is already delightful, however, including spinach and beans make this soup considerably more hearty. You may include, of course, chickpeas (garbanzo beans), different sorts of beans or vegetables, yet I gotta tell ya’ this soup is really great all alone as well.

Leek, Potato and Mushroom Soup

Leek, Potato and Mushroom Soup

Leek, Potato and Mushroom Soup

Today on the blog menu, we are having Leek, Potato, and Mushroom Soup. Doesn’t it look like you just want to dive in? Oh, it was that good, in my own shameless opinion.


I know it’s summertime, and most of y’all eating salads and grilled food, but I make soups even this time of the year. I absolutely love potato soup, and mushroom soup is one my favorite since childhood, so adding baked, then mashed potatoes to the soup was an amazing idea.  

Leek, Potato and Mushroom Soup

Now, after testing more than a few times, I liked it much better when I add a can of condensed mushroom soup.

I know that you can make it “condensed mushroom soup ” yourself from the scratch, but, to tell you honestly, it saves me time and I actually like it very much.

When I was sharing potato-mushroom soup across my social media, I didn’t add leek, and I thought how awesome would it be if I add it to the mix?! Oh, boy… I was so glad that I did. It gave me tons of flavor and it was phenomenal altogether.

Leek, Potato and Mushroom Soup

I love this soup chunky, but by all means use that electric soup masher, or food processor/blender, if you like it smooth in texture.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup bacon
  • 1/4 yellow onion
  • 1 leek sliced
  • 7 mushrooms
  • 2 baked potatoes medium size
  • 3/4 cup LOW sodium Chicken broth/or vegetable broth
  • 3/4 cups water
  • 1 can condensed soup cream of mushrooms
  • 1 cup heavy whipped cream/ or half and half
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Topping:

  • 1 scallion
  • Crunchy bacon bits
  • Chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  1. Wrap washed potatoes individually in the aluminum foil, and bake for 40 minutes at 400F (200C) or until it is tender to the touch. (Leftover baked potato work fine with this recipe too.)
  2. Cut bacon into small pieces, and cook over the medium heat until it is crispy (a few minutes). Take the pieces out and on the paper towel, and reserve the fat from the bacon.
  3. Saute onion over medium-high heat with bacon fat for 2-3 minutes, or until they are softer. Season with a pinch or two of salt, then add chopped Leek and cook again for a few minutes before adding sliced mushrooms. When you add mushrooms, let it saute for 5 minutes on a lower heat.
  4. Pour in low sodium chicken broth (vegetable broth would work just fine.), cover and let it simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, spoon out potato flesh and mash as much as you can. Add it to the leek-mushroom mixture. Mix, and add condensed mushroom soup, whipped cream or half and a half, and water.
  6. Stir and keep the temperature on low. Cover, but mix frequently. Let it simmer for 5-7 minutes. If you like it thinner, just add more water. Season with salt and pepper to taste. At this point, you can use an electric soup masher, or food processor/blender to make it smooth the texture.
  7. Garnish with reserved bacon bits, chopped scallions, and/or parsley.

Recipe Notes

If you do not eat “pork” bacon, use smoked turkey bacon. It makes a huge difference. But you can omit and use oil. Heavy whipped cream VS half and a half–well, I used both, and I like the creaminess of the heavy whipped cream, however, it is not a drastic difference in taste if you use half and a half. If you don’t like or do not have a leek, scallions could be used as a substitute. I actually tried making it with grilled “leftover” chicken and it was tasty. So I definitely recommend adding cooked chicken.

The holiday season, I don’t know if I like it or it‘s just getting crazier each year that I want to hibernate until it‘s over. If I could, I would trust me, but my kids. Ah! They just love the whole holiday concept; decorating, Christmas songs and movies, presents, food, etc. They made us get a tree to decorate just before Thanksgiving. We really try to give them every year what they expect and nothing […]

Peas and Chicken Soup Recipe

As the morning was quite foggy and the sun was peaking through, I sat down with my coffee and started brainstorming recipes.

I was thinking about the recipes that could help the sick from the cold this winter season.

As has been proven that Chicken noodle soup got healing properties. However, I wanted gto make something more satisfying, rich and tasty.

There is nothing more comforting than a bowl of homemade soup on a cold day.

It is inexpensive and cooking is fairly simple. Not to mention full of good stuff to comfort you at the time of need of comfort.

Peas and Chicken Soup Recipe

As I made it the other day and full pot was actually gone for lunch. Nothing was left.

That’s what I love to see, not wasted food. My hubby grabbed a ladle and had one more bowl.

The taste is fantastic; not bland at all, so it does have a flavor and pretty good one.

Furthermore, in case if you do happen to have loved one that is sick, why don’t you try making this soup? You will be amazed how delicious it is!

Prep Time 10 minutes

Author Sandra | Sandra’s Easy Cooking

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp. Oil
  • 1/4 Yellow Onion chopped
  • 2 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 2 cups Peas frozen
  • 2 Cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 Cup water more if needed
  • 1 Chicken Breast /if frozen slightly defrost
  • 1-2 Dry Bay Leaf
  • 1 Chicken Bullion
  • 1/2 inch Ginger chopped
  • 1 Carrot medium size/julienne or cut into smaller cubes
  • Potatoes peeled and cut into larger cubes
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Garnish:

  • Parsley
  • Red Chili Flakes

Instructions

  1. In the large pot heat oil and drop onion, saute for few minutes then add garlic, stir then add frozen peas.
  2. Add Chicken broth, water, bay leaf/s and chicken breast(you may cut the chicken into bite size pieces if desired), Stir and let it boil for 10 minutes, covered on medium high!
  3. At this point drop in Bullion, ginger, carrot, and potato; season it with salt and pepper and let it cook until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender about 25-30 minutes.
  4. Discard bay leaf, garnish with parsley and red chili flakes. Serve with rice on the side or bread.

Recipe Notes

If you wish to add mushrooms perhaps or extra veggies the taste will not go bad. A little bit of heat goes a long way, so I do recommend a pinch of red chili flakes, or cayenne pepper in the serving bowl. Potato cooks faster than a carrot, so cut always carrots smaller than a potato to get it evenly cooked. Add Tofu instead of the chicken and use Vegetable stock and bouillon, if you are Vegetarian
