Ingredients: Tomatoes, Onions, Broth, and a Dash of Salt

Hi, Kate,

Perhaps, instead of swearing off your beloved soup, you could try making it yourself. Yes, it may take a bit more time than it takes you to microwave a ready-made one, but it’s simple—and you can control the salt content. Why deny yourself a pleasure when the problem is so easily solved?

Yours,
Molly Bennett

Kate Schlegel responds:

Dear Molly,

Making soup is, indeed, simple. But in addition to being a soup person, I am also, sadly, an impatient person and a busy one. So I’ll keep soup off my meal plans for now.

Kate
