Pacific Natural Foods Organic Light Sodium Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup

Made with roasted red bell peppers, roasted garlic, and tomatoes, this creamy milk-based soup from Pacific Foods tastes like it’s been simmering on Julia’s stovetop, but a light hand with the salt cuts sodium in half (down to 360 mg per cup) from an original version. Ditch the box and guests will be raving about your culinary skills. Try heating soup on the stovetop and stirring in different ingredients based on what sounds good at the moment. Our favorite twist: a sprinkle of fresh ground pepper, baby spinach leaves, and chickpeas.
