That will depend upon the ingredients. The following recipe is VERY healthy:|
2 tb Split peas, dried
2 ts Sesame seeds
2 tb Cracked wheat
2 ts Sunflower seeds
1/4 c Dehydrated vegetable flakes
1 ts Nutritional yeast
(soup greens) 1/2 ts Salt
The following link give info on the nutritional value of some of the ingredients:
Food historians tell us the history of soup is probably as old as the history of cooking. The act of combining various ingredients in a large pot to create a nutritious, filling, easily digested, simple to make/serve food was inevitable. This made it the perfect choice for both sedentary and travelling cultures, rich and poor, healthy people and invalids. Soup (and stews, pottages, porridges, gruels, etc.) evolved according to local ingredients and tastes. New England chowder, Spanish gazpacho, Russian borscht, Italian minestrone, French onion, Chinese won ton and Campbell's tomato...are all variations on the same theme.|
Soups were easily digested and were prescribed for invalids since ancient times.
