LoCal "Zero Points" Diet Soup

LoCal "Zero Points" Diet Soup

Ready in 45 minutes

Low in calories and fat, high in fiber and flavor; this dish is great when you are dieting. It can be served hot as a soup or cold like gazpacho.

"This recipe is wonderful! I used my Ninja to cut the veggies down to gaspacho size. We're enjoying it hot tonight along with roasted turnips and parsnips. Don't forget the lemon juice, it really brightens the flavor. I added low sodium chicken stock, chia seeds and five little beets. I made a huge stock pot full. Will freeze most. This goes in my "favorites" and I will make more as soon as we use up what we have. Fabulous vegetarian option or great with a little chicken added as you heat it up on the stove."

Preparation

This is a basic guide. You might think of this as "clean the vegetable tray" soup. It''s a "Musgovian" dish. You look in the fridge and say, "This must go and that must go". =;)

Cut up the vegetables and buzz them in the food processor until they are fairly fine. Gradually blend in the vegetable juice cocktail (I usually buy the "house brand") and seasonings. Taste as you go along until you get a nice tangy-spicy flavor.

Rmember that cold foods don''t taste as strong as when they are warm so you may want to "under shoot" on the seasonings at first. You can always add more later.

This will make about 1/2 gallon (64 oz) of "soup". Store it in the refrigerator or freeze it in 6 oz containers to be thawed out later.

If you are watching salt intake use the "low sodium version of vegetable juice. You can also use canned tomatoes rather than the mixed vegetable juice. The mixed juice has a fair amount of carrots and beets in it which are higher in carbs that many other vegetables.

Each (6 fl oz) serving contains and estimated:

Cals: 54, FatCals: 3, TotFat: 0g

Chol: 0mg, Na: 985mg, K: 582mg

TotCarbs: 12g, Fiber: 3g, Sugars: 6g

NetCarbs: 9g, Protein: 3g

Notes

I keep a few containers of this in the freezer at work for a quick, lo-cal lunch or to stave off a "snack attack". It takes about 4 minutes in the microwave for hot soup or about an hour in the refrigerator for a refreshing cold cup.
