Clever Toppings that Make Soup a Meal

Progresso Light Chicken Pot Pie Style
An easy dinner can still be a tasty dinner. Try these creative toppings and turn a can of soup into something special.

On busy nights, the convenience of popping open a can of soup and calling it dinner can’t be denied. But even the heartiest bowl of soup can benefit from a topping or two, especially if they add texture, color or nutrition. Here are seven easy ideas for rounding out your next supper, with each topper taking 20 minutes or less to prep.

Progresso High Fiber Creamy Tomato Basil
