Make Your Own Cup Of Soup

If you need something quick for lunch or snack, this really takes the edge off, but isn’t high in calories. Here are 9 super quick mug of soup ideas under 100 calories each.

To make them more filling add 1/2-3/4 cup finely diced fresh veggies such as broccoli, carrots, zucchini, peppers, onions, etc to any of the mixes. Cook for 1 minute on high in the microwave in your mug. Add the remaining ingredients as listed below:

Sick Woman’s Salvation: 1 cup hot chicken bouillon with a dash of lemon pepper. 6 calories.

Maggie’s Favorite: 1 cup hot chicken bouillon with a dash each of onion powder and cayenne pepper. 7 calories. I often add an unsalted, crumbled saltine cracker which brings the calories up to 20.

Tangy Beef Cup: 1 cup hot beef bouillon with a dash of Worcestershire sauce. 5 calories.

Spicy Beef Cup: 1/2 cup each beef bouillon and tomato juice with a shot of hot sauce. 23 calories.

Chicken Curry: 1 cup hot chicken bouillon with a pinch of curry powder, 2 teaspoons dry instant rice, or cooked rice, and a pinch of dry parsley. 21 calories.

Country Compassion: 1 cup hot ham or beef bouillon, 1 teaspoon bacon bits; 1 teaspoon mashed potato flakes and 1/2 teaspoon dry onion. 19 calories.

French Onion: 1 cup beef bouillon, 1 teaspoon dry onion and a small pinch of garlic powder. 10 calories.

French Onion Supreme: Prepare French Onion above. Crumble 1 saltine cracker into the soup, and add 1/2 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese. 25 calories.

Vegetable Beef: 1 cup hot beef bouillon poured over 1/2 cup shredded salad greens. The boiling broth will cook the vegetables just enough. Add a dash each hot pepper flakes, onion powder and garlic powder. A few celery leaves are also nice. 15 calories.

Note: Here’s a tip for preparing veggies just once a week and having them last without spoiling or getting mushy. Waste Not, Want Not

  2. So Saving this to a text File…So gonna try all of these Thanks a Bunch

    Oh and Thanks Freebiequeen Gonna try those alsoLove shower:party1:

  3. I don’t use bouillon cubes (allergic to an ingredient) but all of these can easily just use the broth I make and freeze all the time. Think I’ll be putting some of it up in 1 cup batches now. Some of these sound super.


  4. I really like that so many can be made with dry ingredients and then just add hot water. For a camper, hiker, or prepper this is great. Also for teachers, secretaries, or anyone who needs a quick way to get a pick me up with out taking up much space in the purse.
