Just a tip: Swanson® Broth tips

Monday, April 19, 2010

One of the newsletters I get often is from Swanson® Broth. Today's had these great tips in it and I thought I would share them with you. 

  • Light Basil Pesto
Add 2 cups packed, fresh basil leaves, 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, 3 cloves garlic and 1/2 cup Swanson® Chicken broth in a food processor bowl or blender jar. Cover and process until smooth. Toss with pasta or use as sauce for chicken or fish.

  • Simple Seasoned Pasta
Use 3 1/2 cups Swanson® Chicken broth to boil 3 cups uncooked corkscrew pasta. Add chopped tomatoes to broth and pasta before cooking. Season with garlic powder and Italian seasoning.

  • No-Fat Oven-Roasted Garlic
Cut off the top of a garlic bulb. Drizzle with a little Swanson® Chicken broth. Wrap in aluminum foil. Roast garlic for 1 hour or until softened. Add roasted garlic to mashed potatoes, meat gravies and soups/stews. Roasted garlic is also perfect for making garlic toast.

  • Savory Corn Muffins
Use Swanson® Chicken broth instead of milk when preparing your favorite corn muffin mix. Follow package directions, substituting an equal amount of broth for milk.

  • Moist and Savory Stuffing
Use Swanson® broth instead of water when preparing your favorite stuffing mix or from-scratch recipe. Substitute an equal amount of Swanson Chicken broth for water as you prepare it.

  • Fat-Free Sun-Dried Tomatoes
Instead of using sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, soak dry-packed sun-dried tomatoes in hot Swanson® Chicken or Vegetable broth. Add the tomatoes, along with some of the liquid, to salads and pasta dishes—you'll never miss the oil. This trick also works well when rehydrating dried fruits such as apricots, raisins, dried fruit blends, cranberries, and cherries for a savory dish like soup, stuffing or rice pilaf.

  • Herb-Grilled Vegetables
Mix 1/2 cup Swanson® Chicken or Vegetable broth with 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Brush this broth mixture onto your favorite vegetables, such as red onion, green or red pepper, zucchini or yellow squash, or mushrooms. Grill or broil vegetables until they are tender. A deliciously different addition to any meal!

  • Garlic Broccoli Pasta Sauce
Stir-fry fresh broccoli florets and chopped garlic in a nonstick skillet until tender-crisp. Toss with hot linguine and add enough Swanson® Chicken broth to moisten.

  • Leftovers
Use Swanson® broth when reheating your soups and sides dishes to add moisture and delicious flavor.
