How To ‘Kick-Up A Can Of Soup’ (Video)

YouTube Preview Image

Two things that hold true for me when it comes to food:

  • I do NOT skip meals.  I don’t think I’ve ever skipped a meal in my life !  AND, I’ll never understand people that “forget  to eat.”
  • I do NOT compromise on flavor- this means even if I don’t have time, I’m uninspired, or I am in a rush – I ALWAYS manage to find a way to be sure that whatever I am eating tastes good!

Now while I don’t consider myself a food snob, although I admit that I can be rather particular; it’s not often that I can find a “pre-made” (either canned or frozen) meal that has been able to satisfy me “as-is.”  As a matter of fact, I don’t know that I have ever really enjoyed anything  pre-made without “doctoring it up a bit.”

Since there will always be those days when you’re just gonna need a little help in the kitchen this video shares a simple way to give those “boring-bland-pre-made-meals” a little home-made kiss, so that no matter what’s for dinner, YOU NEVER have to sacrifice flavor!

And feel free to carry this idea beyond soup.  You can give a little fresh life to just about any pre-made meal you’ve got.  Just think veggies, herbs, spices, onions, garlic, tortillas, cheese… these are all “quick-go-to” ingredients that can help “punch-up” a dish in very little time!

So tell me… Do you guys have any tricks or tips for kickin’-up a “pre-made” meal?  Any favorite go-to techniques you use in your kitchen??  If so, I’d love to hear about them!

    I got so excited when I read this post, because I get so fed up with people who forget to eat! I end up feeling weird for making them eat lunch when we go out for a day. Because if it was up to them, they would just forget! Thanks for this post.
