30 Minute Meal: Soups ON

30-minute meal with classic tomato soup. It's delicious and healthy and has a hidden fibre bonus with cannelini beans.
Fresh baked biscuits, and creamy tomato soup with an added bonus of creamed Cannelini beans to give you an extra boost of fibre.

Want a healthy, fast meal that is highly adaptable? I mean, really, who DOESN’T…right? Soup checks all the boxes: it’s fast, healthy, delicious, adaptable and can often be made with standard pantry items.

You (or your kids) can master this 30 minute meal. It has white beans to give it some fibre, balance the acid in the tomatoes and give some protein. Want more beans? Add them! You could even add ground beef, homemade meatballs or soy meat. Garnish it with fresh basil, Parmesan cheese, a dollop of Marscapone or Ricotta, or fresh croutons. Serve with a baguette or fresh biscuits. I’ve got another great soup for you here.

Grab a knife, a cutting board and a pot and set your timer, ‘cuz soup’s on! Or, better yet, get your kids on this. Dinner will be ready in 30!
