Soup Recipe ;)
This is my “Go to” meal when I need to get back on track with nutrition. I am bad about not putting my recipes in a recipe “format” so I will do that for you ;) please keep in mind that there are limitless variations on this recipe. The good thing about soup is that you can be creative and just use what you have on hand. Let me see some posts about your soup… Your variations!!
Meat of choice. Cooked (use olive oil) and seasoned to taste. I like to use ground turkey… Go with lean meats. You could also use steak or chicken.
Seasonings: Italian Seasonings, Tony’s with Herbs (use what you like)
1 can of tomato sauce (organic and/or low sodium)
1 can of chicken broth
1 can of Rotel…if you like spicy
Water to bring up the broth level
VEGGIES: (I prefer fresh veggies, but frozen could be used…fresh is better:)
1 yellow squash
1 bag of fresh broccoli cauliflower and baby carrots
Cook meat in olive oil and season to taste. Add all other ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat.
Important for this soup is to NOT overcook the veggies! They should be tender but not “mushy.” This soup freezes well and makes a wonderful lunch for those busy times.
Other ingredients: garbanzo beans, black beans, green, red, orange, yellow peppers, other squash….be creative. There are no “rules” with this soup or any soup! Use what you have on hand…or buy what looks good in the store that day! My soup is a little different every time I make it. Enjoy and please let me know if you make it…share :)
Time to get back on track … The day after Christmas I will be working hard! I am also going to do my best to be “reasonable” with my food choices!
