Hello! Just wondering how everyone prepares their soup. I made chicken noodle today and it completely boiled over in the microwave. I had it in what I considered to be a large bowl! Yuck, what a mess!.

Anyway, I want to avoid crunchy noodles, etc. Just wondering if it can be made either ahead of time, or on the stove or any other clever ideas!.

Thanks so much!..

Soak it for several hours before heating it...maybe even make it in one of those little dip-size crockpots...

I pour 1 cup boiling water into a 2 cup glass measuring cup (pyrex) and let it sit on the counter for 10-30 mins depending on when I remember it's sitting there. The I put it into the micro for 30-60 seconds to reheat.

I have found that microwaving in 30 second intervals with a quick stir between keep the boil overs away..

I always soak my soups, shakes, hot chocolate, cappuccino over night. I find it eliminates the gritty texture in the drinks and crunchy pieces in the soups. When I heat my soup up in the microwave at work I do it for 2 minutes and when I'm home I always heat the soup up on the stove. Hope that helps!..

I also have problems with the cappucino and hot cocoa boiling over I just make the packet in two batches.

The soup, I microwave for 1 minute and stir and so on until it is done. Definitely soak your soups. IMO they are indible if you do not..

I shake the soup first in the shaker and then I let it sit for around 2 hours and throw it in the microwave for about 1 min. Then another 30 sec. But I watch it and if I see it boiling then I stop and stir and that is it...

I always soak my foods for a minimum of 2 hours before I eat them, so I always am making my next meal when I go to eat one. Has helped a lot...

I use chicken broth instead of water. The soups are tastier...I also use a small thermo for my soups. I heat it up in the microwave and then place it in the thermo. After a couple of hours the soup is still warm and the noodles/rice are soft...

I buy the Medium size ZipLoc Bowls, they hold "3" cups. So I measure 1 cup of water or chicken broth if I want to use one of my condiments and want my Chicken Noodle soup extra rich in flavor. Stir it, put the lid on it and let it sit in fridge over night and soak up all the liquid. The next day at lunch the soup is ready to go in the microwave, being in a perfect 3 cup container it DOES NOT Overflow, which is nice. The soup is delicious..

I make all my meals ahead of time the night before and put in the fridge for the next day! I also make shakes and freeze for Grab and Go or on the run!.

Hope this helps. Dan..

Soaking the food is the way to go. It also helps to keep any eye on the microwave while cooking. Head the stove works well also although I have not tried it. Remember cooking, no matter what it is takes some attention!..

I don't soak any of my food and it always turns out fine. I mix the water in with the soup (actually use 3/4cup instead of 1 cup so it's thicker) and then add some spices and microwave for 2 1/2 minutes. Then take out and stir and microwave again for 1 minute. Then let sit for 5 minutes... Always turns out perfect...

I am a soaker too.....I will use my hot water when making my tea in the morning and make my soup.....and then I let it sit and soak in the fridge until lunch, 2 meals away.....I like it the best that way also. Then I just nuke it.....lately I haven't had any boil over, but that has happed to me too......good luck with your soup...

I have been using a kettle to boil water first, then pour it in with the soup, stir, and cover and leave is for 15 minutes. But when you have to take it to work, I suggest putting it in a ziplock container, take it with you, add the water when you are settled at work, and let it soak before lunch, then nuking. I nuke 1 minute at a time and stir in between to keep in from boiling over...

(large cup or deep Corelle bowl).

I just put it in micro for 2 minutes.

Let it stand for 1 minute and stir.

Put it back for another minute..

Let it sit to cool a little..

Always very soft and delicious...

I finally made some chicken noodle soup that was edible! YUMMO..used boiling water and let it soak for 3 hours..then heated in microwave, 20 seconds (3 times), and stirred each filling I forgot to eat my next meal...very yummy for medifast food...

Now if I could just get that nasty chocolate pudding taste out of my mouth....yuck.........

Comment #14

I soak mine in 2 cups of 'better the bullion chicken broth" it comes in jar next to bullion cubes, I fine the "better than" brand is much better tasting than cubes (yuck).

I add sprinkle of pepper too..

I heat mine the next day in a glass Pyrex bowl for 1 min or more if needed..

Never heat your food in the microwave in plastic!! Very bad for you!..
