View Full Version : Soup Bases - Versatile!

09-28-2008, 01:50 PM
If you've never tried any of the Watkins Soup and Gravy bases, you
need to! They might look similar to any old can of soup, but these are
NOT the same as typical condensed soup that makes one or two servings.
These are dry mixes, that make up to 50 servings or more. So they are
very economical. Plus, they have so many uses for flavoring all kinds
of dishes other than soup and gravy.

You can get these Soup and Gravy Base flavors: <ul><li ="zero">Beef
<li ="zero">Cheese
<li ="zero">Chicken
<li ="zero">Cream
<li ="zero">Mexican
<li ="zero">Mushroom
<li ="zero">Onion
<li ="zero">Six Onion

And these two Gourmet Gravy Bases:<ul><li ="zero">Country Gourmet
<li ="zero">Roasted Turkey

Additionally, Baked Potato Soup</span> is part of this year's Seasonal Favorites line.

Here is how your fellow associates use these bases: <ul><li ="half">I
don't make much soup, so this may sound strange, but my favorite
Watkins cooking products are the soup bases. I use them for so many
things, sprinkling on chicken when I bake it, simmering it with rice,
tossing it in with roasted potatoes. The uses are endless, and the
results make the simplest dish seem like you really know what you're
doing. <li ="half">I love the Chicken Soup mix! It got my kids to eat veggies after my mother-in-law used it in the cooking water.
<li ="half">One of my favorite products is the Beef Soup
Base. Before trying this product my children would not eat roast and
after several days we would have to throw away left overs. Now we're
lucky to get one meal out of a roast with my kids. <li ="half">The Mushroom Soup Base is a huge time saver for
making homemade spaghetti sauce. Instead of cooking my sauce of hours I
know add a few tablespoons of Mushroom Soup Base. It thickens my sauce
and adds a lovely light mushroom flavour that even my picky
step-daughter can deal with. <li ="half">My single most favorite product is the onion
soup. I like being able to fix a cup of good soup instantly. My
favorite soup is a pack of ramen noodles (throw away their seasonings),
some pepperoni (turkey is best, less fat) and two teaspoons of the
onion soup. It's delicious and ready in a couple of minutes. <li ="half">I take a bag of frozen green beans or green
peas and I mix in 1 Tbsp of butter/margarine, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, 1
Tbsp splenda (or sugar if you prefer), a couple shakes of Garlic Liquid
Spice, 2 Tbsp of water and 2 Tbsp of the Six Onion Soup base, then
microwave for about 5 minutes, and sprinkle with Minced Green Onion
right before serving. <li ="half">We have a customer who's step-dad recently had
part of his tongue amputated due to cancer. Due to the chemo, his taste
buds are about shot. My customer said that she needs more Beef Soup
base, that she is almost out. You see, the only thing that the family
found that "dad" will eat is our Watkins Beef Soup Base, because, it is
the only thing that he can taste and he LOVES the flavor.
[/list]If a recipe calls for a "cream" soup, like cream of mushroom or cream
of chicken, just whip up one of the Watkins bases according to the
"gravy" directions, which would typically be about the same consistency
as a cream-style soup.

These are great! I love the Mushroom soup base in the pasta sauce! What a great flavor enhancer! The mushroom soup base has become one of my favorites. Not only does it make a great cup of soup (very comforting), I also love it rubbed on a roast right before baking~ Mmmm.....Mmmm!

OK, now I am off to make myself a cup! LOL!
