One of the staples I keep in my refrigerator is shredded cheese. Shredded cheese is a tasty way to add calcium to foods. An added bonus is it often adds an extra splash of color such as in this soup.
Other foods I enhance with a sprinkle of cheese include:
- Bean dishes
- Baked potatoes
Shredded cheese comes in several varieties and is available in both regular and reduced fat versions.
So … if you’re looking for an easy way to kick up the flavor, nutrition and color of foods, just SAY CHEESE!
(Note: Find the recipe for the Corn Chowder in “What’s Cooking? USDA Mixing Bowl. It’s really quick and easy to make and is thickened by the addition of low-sodium cream style corn.)
