Here is the sight that awaited me in the kitchen when I woke up this morning. I only wish I could post the scent instead. Yum!
This pot full of veggies was the backbone of my lunch today. And it cost me absolutely no Weight Watchers points to eat. Now how is that for feeling like you are getting away with something?
I modified the recipe that I found in my booklet from years ago. Here's how I made my version of Zero Point Soup:
- 2/3 cup sliced carrot
- 1 small diced onion - sauteed with Pam
- 1 can diced tomatoes with roasted garlic
- 3 tsp fat free beef bullion
- 3 cups water
- 1 can water chestnuts
- 2 stalks chopped celery
- 1/2 can green beans
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 1/4 tsp dried oregano
- 1/4 tsp salt
- pinch of pepper
- 1 tsp corn starch (to help thicken it - you can also use 1 Tbsp tomato paste)
Come lunch break, I was not disappointed! It was flavorful and filling. My only complaint is that the recipe only makes enough for four servings. Next time, I am making up a big batch!
