Fast Veggie Soup/ 99% fat free


This soup has been developed out of the need to loose more weight this week than last. It is a healthy, low fat, low calorie,filling soup that you can eat a lot of and not really do much damage. I plan to have this for lunch and supper the rest of this week until weigh in on Friday.

1/2 green pepper chopped

1 cup chopped carrots

3 zucchini chopped

1 onion chopped

1t chopped garic

4 stalks of celery chopped

1 container of mushrooms cut up (portobello)

2 cans of diced tomatoes with the juice

1 jalapeno pepper diced (remove seeds first)

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 block of extra firm tofu cut in cubes and added last

1 large box of organic veggie broth

1 large box of beef broth

1 bay leaf

pepper to taste

Mix all in a large soup pot and cook for 50 minutes, or until all veggies are tender

I will be having 2 cups as one serving and would say there are about 45 to 50 calories a cup.

It's actually very good, I added the hot pepper to give it a little kick.

I did not add any extra salt, however you can season to taste.
