At the market, let kids have fun selecting produce for this spring dinner. Use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock to make this a vegetarian dish.
Add a variety of root vegetables, such as turnips and parsnips, to chicken soup for subtle sweetness and bite. Or, feel free to omit them and simply add more carrot and leek, if you prefer. Be sure to cook the egg noodles separately so the starch in the noodles doesn’t cloud the clear soup broth.

This one’s a toss up. Some prepared soups are veggie-rich; others stuff in more pasta than vegetable or negate health benefits with hefty amounts of cream or fat. Look for vegetable(s) listed as one of the first two ingredients and try to keep a lid on sodium and fat. Better yet, make homemade soup that’s brimming with vegetables, like this Curried Potatoes and Squash stew. A heavy dose of flavorful veggies—potatoes, squash, tomatoes, green peas, green onions—make this a nutritional A+.
