Nourish PA: On-The-Go Veggie and Chicken Noodle Soup

Canned chicken noodle soup can be comforting, but there’s often not a lot to it. We take a few cans of soup and add four kinds of veggies (cabbage, carrots, mushrooms and scallions) to boost flavor and nutrition. And because you’re starting with prepared soup, the prep and cooking happens in a flash! Make a batch on a rainy day, or bag some up in freezer bags and save them for a quick meal anytime.
