Very Good 4.0/5
(3 ratings)

This is a classic recipe and one of my favourite soups. Very low calorie and very tasty. Although there's similar recipes here on SP, I like to add some lemon juice for some acidity in what otherwise is a very sweet soup.

This makes 3 /large/ servings.

From Rachael Ray's 30 Minute Meals. She listed this as 4 servings, which would work as a main dish with a salad, but I made it 8 servings as a side dish. Mint is not included in the nutrition information.

A 2-pound whole squash yields about 4 cups of cubes. Look for tomato paste in a tube, so you can use a tablespoon at a time. Serve with cheese toast.

This is the BEST meatless chili I've ever had. I don't remember where we got the recipe, but it cooks up very quick and is great on cold days. The texture of the bulgar completely covers the fact that there's not meat.

My very serious meat eating husband even loves it.

Perhaps it’s the lime dressing, which infuses the dish with flavor without overwhelming it in goo. It could be the quinoa, which has a distinctive nutty taste far superior to white rice and its lamer brethren. Or, maybe it’s the tomatoes, black beans, and scallions, which reminded one friend of "the insides of a really good burrito."
Whatever it is, it’ll make you forget uninspired diet food. :-)
