I’ve been busy thinking about my holiday baking lately and just what I want to make and how I’m going to make it. There are so many common Thanksgiving and holiday themed dishes that call for items in cans! We stay away from pretty much anything in a can because of the risk of BPA so this holiday season I have Become Carton Smart and learned about the alternatives!
One of my fav super easy recipes to make in the winter is Chicken and Rice Soup. It’s very simple:
Chicken and Rice Soup
What You Need:
- 4 Cups Chicken Broth or Stock
- 4 Cups Water
- 1 Cup Cooked, Shredded Chicken
- Veggies (Carrots, celery, winter squash, onions, anything you have on hand)
- 1/2 Cup Uncooked Rice
On the stovetop mix together the chicken broth and water. Add in the veggies and chicken. Cook until the veggies are soft. Add in the rice about 10 minutes before the soup is done cooking. Stir occasionally until the rice is cooked. Serve warm. You can also add about 1 cup of cheese to the entire pot before serving to make it cheesy!
Such a simple soup recipe but so good!
Tetra Pak also makes cartons for other items that you might use this holiday season as well such as Pumpkin Puree and Cranberry Sauce.
I’m so excited about this alternative packaging because it means I don’t have to buy any cans to make my holiday favorites this year!
