I have searched all morning to try to find recipes to make the soups (Maryland crab, chicken noodle & veg beef) go down smoother and have been side tracked by all of the other fabulous meal recipes. I am very new (week 2!) and need to stay as close to OP as I can as I haven't quite figured out all of the ins & outs of the program! All recipes for the soup are very greatly appreciated...especially if it will help me eat them since I have so many!!..

Hi, Moot3!.

I like this recipe for soup chips.

Also, I think the soups taste much better when you mix them with water ahead of time and then put them in the fridge to soak for a couple of hours.

Hope you find some ways to make them tastier for you!.


Comment #1

I prepare mine the night before and let soak at least 12 hours. For the chicken noodle I use low sodium chicken broth instead of water and increase the the liquid to 1 1/2 cups. I also find use 1 green (usually chopped up broccoli) and a little garlic and onion powder make it quite tasty..

The beef stew I use low beef broth instead of water and a few spices also..

Soaking the soups really help them alot!..

Comment #2

I use my soups as part of recipes, mostly, but for soup-soup...I ALWAYS start mine to soak the night before. VERY IMPORTANT....find a glass jar with a SCREW ON LID! Never shake a plastic container with soup in it! I've cleaned the Maryland Crab of my ceiling and walls TWICE! (no, I didn't learn the first time!) Now I have a couple "recycled" Classico Pasta Sauce jars and an applesauce jar that I soak my soups in. Just sayin'..

I make mine in a thermos in the morning. I add 1/2 cube bouillon, some onion powder and a dash of Tabasco. Then I add the hot water and screw on the lid. By lunch it is nice and plumped up and tastes great. To the cream of broccoli, I toss in a little bit of raw, chopped broccoli. It is cooked in the thermos by lunch time...

I have a little 1 quart crockpot from the drugstore. I prepare my soup early in the day. I double the water and add a little boullion. I like to add cauliflower to my soups. Tastes like potatoes. Huge bowl.

I also like chopped spinach in the chicken noodle...reminds me of italian wedding soup. Doesn't seem to work out too well with the cream soups and I am not a fan of the crab soup. Hope this helps. The cream soups make nice breads or chips. To make the cream soup, add a couple of Tablespoons of water to it and make a paste.

Add steamed veggies and you have "Cream of..cauliflower, broccoli etc. Hope these suggestions help...

I like the chicken noodle "pre-soaked" as well. I put the packet in a small thermos, boil some water in a kettle. Pour it over, mix & just leave it on the counter for about an hour (or more). Everything gets softened up & since it's in the thermos, no need to re-heat later on..

I add a dash of hot chile sauce (sriracha) to mine & I love it now! I used to hate it before I figured out what worked..

Comment #6

I use Herbie's recipes for the chicken noodle soups chips. For the veg beef stew I add 1/2 -1 full beef boullion cube...this makes ALL the difference. Then if I want it really chunky and want to use some of my green from my lean green I dump in about 1/3 can green beans and let it sit for at least the full 5 mins covered so it can soak/steep. Depending on my taste buds of the week I'll add add'l dry spices: garlic, onion, Mrs.Dash, etc.but 99% of the time the boullion cube does the trick. I use the boullion in the chili too. Hope that helps!..

Comment #7

I add seasonings (salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, or whatever I'm in the mood for) and sometimes I use low cal/sodium chicken broth instead of water - I use one by College Inn that is only 5 calories/cup. I like to add a small amount of frozen chopped spinach to the chicken noodle and veg. beef. I buy the loose bagged frozen spinach and throw in a couple of tbsp to the soup.

I also like the soups better when cooked in a pot on the stove instead of the microwave. I add the cold liquid (usually a little bit extra), whisk, then bring to a boil. Then I turn it down on low and let it simmer for 10-15 mins. Also, I don't know if you've tried the chili yet, like most Medifast foods some people love it and others hate it. I really like it and find that it's much tastier with a small amount of added salt, pepper, garlic or onion powder and ground cumin (I use a small sprinkle of each), plus 1-2 tbsp. of salsa.

Of course to be strictly OP subtract any added veggies from your green for the day, and count spices as condiments - I measured it once and what I usually add came out to about 1/16th of a tsp...
