EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, an antioxidant which is converted into vitamin A by the body. Major food sources of vitamin A and beta-carotene include carrots, pumpkin, spinach, cantaloupe, red bell peppers, apricots and collard greens.

Sprinkle each serving with oyster crackers or fish-shaped Cheddar crackers.

For a heartier chowder, add 1 cup Green Giant® Frozen Sweet Peas, thawed, with the milk.

Complement this sweet soup with crisp breadsticks and a fresh fruit salad garnished with mint.
