Ditch The Chicken And Make Tuna Noodle Soup Instead

If you didn't already have reasons to keep your pantry stocked with cans of tuna, we have another one to add to the list: tuna noodle soup. The easy soup recipe adds extra lean protein to your soup bowl, and for those diners who aren't crazy about the taste of tuna, this is a delicious way to sneak the ingredient into a meal.

Though chicken is usually the go-to addition to make noodle soup, tuna can be an equally delicious and health-supporting substitute ingredient. Particularly on days you aren't feeling well, the last thing you want to do is have to trek to the grocery store to pick up supplies and put away bags of groceries upon returning home. Thankfully, it is possible to make comforting, nutritious tuna noodle soup with many of the items you have at home. Plus, if you're a fan of tuna noodle casserole, you'll love the flavors of this simple dish. 

A quick and comforting meal

You most likely have all the ingredients that you need to make tuna noodle soup already stocked in your kitchen. Simply choose your base of chicken or vegetable broth, add in your preferred vegetables and egg noodles, season the soup to taste, and get a can of tuna ready to join the soup party that is cooking on your stove.

After draining the tuna, place the ingredient into the soup you have prepared. Cook all of the ingredients together on low heat until the vegetables can be easily pierced with a fork. You can serve the tuna noodle soup on its own, top servings with crispy pieces of onion, or enjoy the comforting dish with toasted pieces of buttered bread or grilled cheese rolls for a satisfying meal that will have you feeling energetic and healthy in no time. 

This recipe can turn out so delicious that it may become your new default lunch the next time you are feeling under the weather.
