Bring soup and water to a boil. Have biscuit dough cut into small pieces and drop into soup. Let simmer a few minutes, until dough is fully cooked. Pepper, to taste.

For a quick soup, pour V8 Seasoned Vegetable Juice (low sodium) into bowl. Place in microwave and heat on High for 2 1/2 minutes. Serve with wholegrain crackers or buns.

I keep the coffee jars that are glass, or any other jar, and put the tomato soup mixes in them and the right amount of water. I shake it up and put it in the fridge. This way it is ready for anyone to just shake and pour, and they have a nice cup of soup when they get it out of the microwave.
Sometimes I put a slice of bread on top of the soup and then a piece of cheese. It is good together but this makes it boil over the top of the mug. It reminds me of onion soup at a restaraunt we used to go to back when we had extra money.
Another note: Don't drop your playstation 3 controller in the tomato soup. The tomato soup will be fine, but the controller will not. :)
This recipe is for two but can be multiplied easily. Combine one can of Navy beans (including liquid), one half can water, one scant teaspoon of bouillon, pepper to taste. Heat to simmer. Add desired amount leftover meat, sausage, or cooked bacon.
I've tossed in leftover corn, green beans, assorted cooked veggies. You can thicken this with a little corn starch or flour slurry. It's very forgiving, and only takes a moment to turn assorted leftovers into something hearty and satisfying

Cook meat cut or crumpled in a pot or frying pan. Remove grease. Add onion and cook until clear. Add broth and veggies. When hot, add rice or spaghetti noodles. Simmer all in a pot add any spices you like. If you like a thick soup add a little instant mashed potato flakes. Makes a large amount that you can feed a crowd or freeze. The amounts can be whatever you have on hand. Have fun with it.

Here's a quick, nourishing soup idea. Into a soup pot put one can of chili with beans, one can of chicken, beef or vegetable broth and whatever vegetables you like, either fresh, canned or frozen. It's healthy and fast.
To one can of beef stew, add water, frozen vegies and cooked pasta, rice and or beans. Ketchup or tomato sauce, salsa, or cann of tomatoes are great, too.
(Recipe #1) Company Soup: 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup plus can of milk. Add one can chicken noodle soup plus can of water.
Recipe #2) Prepare can of condensed split pea soup with ham. When ready to serve, let drained black olives float on top. A real conversation opener- doesn't change taste much - it's just fun.
I found a way to extend canned chicken noodle soup because it has gotten so expensive - add 2 cans of water instead of one & add 3 teaspoons of powdered chicken soup mix & even a little more water if you don't mind and a teaspoon of powdered tomato soup mix brings out the flavor even more. My son & I love it! He likes more noodles and I love more broth.
1 can of cooked beef - take the gravy out the best you can & break up the chunks with a fork.
1 can of corn (drained)
1 can of butter beans (drained if it's not seasoned)
add some Worchestershire Sauce & heat
This is a nice thick stew like meal .
Put the drainage from the vegetables in a container in the freezer for soup in the future !
Crumble and brown 1 1/2 lb. ground beef in Dutch oven, drain fat. Add 1 cup cooked pasta, 1/2 tsp. celery salt and 1/2 tsp. onion salt, 28 ozs. chicken broth, 1 can crushed tomatoes (do not drain), 1 1/2 c. sliced carrots (canned), 1 chopped onion, 1 c. frozen peas, 1 cup frozen corn and 1 - 14 oz. jar spaghetti sauce. Bring to boil and simmer for 5 min. Fast, hot and really good!!
