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.
