<b>Brew your own broth.</b>
Save and freeze leftover poultry bones to make it easier.
<b>Use unsweetened almond milk for cream. </b>
You’ll preserve the richness without the fat and calories.
<b>Go crazy with veggies.</b>
“I can’t think of a vegetable that doesn’t work well in soup,” Autumn says.
<b>Beef it up, without meat. </b>
Add layers of flavor to meatless recipes with mushrooms and red wine.
<b>Go with the (whole) grain. </b>
“I love whole grains like brown rice, quinoa or millet in a soup packed with veggies,” Autumn says. “Then I don’t need anything on the side but a glass of wine!”
