I bought the packets of miso soup at a health food store, but it's not as good to me as chicken broth and more calories.

I have Tostitos Brand Salsa con queso, but it's 20 cals for T. That more than doubles to calories in a serving of broth so may or may not be worth it. May have to try it on an UD to see if it makes a big enough difference.

Thanks for the info about miso soup. I found some instant on Amazon I'm going to try. I found a great article all about miso if anyone is interested.

If you really like miso soup, you can get refrigerated bags of miso paste for about 4 dollars. There are LOADS of servings in it. I buy it like this because I use miso in cooking, as well.

Hmm, I forget what brand I saw, maybe it was Kikkoman. I thought it was 1 serving but I need to double check!

I just looked online for my store info (Wegmans) and availability, the Kikkoman is 35 calories per serving with THREE servings in it for $2.59! That must be what I saw. It says it is soybean paste. It is one packet with 3 servings, so there must be individual packets in there (hope so, so I don't have to measure it out, lol).

I will also try the Wylers that were mentioned here a few times, I have been leery about getting them b/c they are so inexpensive (compared to the better than boullion).

Thanks for all the input, very helpful!

This doesn't sound good to me. Maybe I'll try it, maybe not.

I have never tried miso, will try it.

I also plan to make some vegetable soup (more calories than plain broth though).

Good question I don't know b/c I have never tried them that I can remember.

I know some people LOVE tomato juice, like on ice - a glass of it. I am willing to try it, will probably.

I do like tomato soup but I have always had it with cream/milk.

Also someone mentioned a tomato chicken broth, that sounds good to me!

You need dashi to make your own miso soup...and dashi is pretty tasty on its own, and very nutritious. Look up Alton brown Miso soup...i think there's a video, too.

Most years I can 80-100 qts of tomato juice from my garden, but last year it didn't happen...V-8 is a DD staple for me. Makes my tongue and my tummy happy.

Oooo, i never thought of that...I have some in my cupboard! I'll have to try some later.

It's dirt cheap, and Walmart has it.

sorry, i'm having trouble with my internet since all the storms came through, otherwise I'd try to put this all iin one post...I'm surprised no one has mention Sriracha! Makes chicken or beef broth come to life! I bet a squeeze of fresh lime, chicken broth and sriracha would be most tasty!

I also vote for Better than bouillon - I like the chicken base and the veggie base (5cals). I use the veggie base a lot for seasoning cabbage, miracles noodles and cooked greens on DD's. Sometimes I drink the chicken broth with a TBS of apple cider vinegar and a couple dashes of spices and it's like hot and sour soup., but many times I'll have it by itself or toss in some torn spinach leaves.

I make lots of homemade black bean, split pea, veggie and green soups (lots of puréed chard/kale/whatever is in the house) and use the chicken base for those too and have half a cup of one of those on a DD for like 50-75 cals.

So I tried the broth and salsa con queso... yum!
1 tsp Better than Bouillon Chicken= 15
.5 T salsa con queso= 10
Really good for 25 calories, but I made it with less than 8oz of boiling water, it would not have been as creamy if I used more water.

3 individual packets in the bag. It's powdered- not paste.

You don't need dashi to make miso soup, actually. You can just add the miso paste to warm (not boiling) water....and whatever other tidbits you like.

Yes, I love it. I don't use a whole T either.
