I have been makinig French Onion Soup for years, but because I have recently started cooking for family members with restrictive diets I have gone a step further, and have come up with what I believe is a pretty good fat free version ;) I am new to posting recipes (as of 3 hours ago, lol), and could not get it exact on Sparks calculations, but I can assure you, this is fat free. This soup is chock full of onions, as I think onion soup should be, so you don't miss all the "fattening stuff"!
I hope you use this recipe, as I always do, as a guide...and make whatever changes or improvements work for you!
Blessings, and I hope you enjoy my Fat Free French Onion Soup Recipe!
Well, I was so excited with my first posting this evening (and I had a restaurant sized can of black beans open) that I decided to give another recipe a try! I hope you use this as a "guide", as I do with all recipes, and add or omit whatever you think will make it better. I look forward to your comments :)
Because I cook for several family members with different dietary needs, I cannot make it as "hot", salty or spicy as I like. You may add hot sauce or cayenne or ?
As I am new to Spark People, and posting recipes ANYWHERE, I had some difficulty with the calculations--I can assure you that this is a FAT FREE recipe, however no matter what I tried I still came up with some fat in the calculations.
We topped this with a T of fat free sour cream, T of Kraft fat free cheddar and some chopped green onions. NO added fat, LOTS of added flavor (don't forget to add this into your calorie total if you do the same). And if you can afford a little "fat", by all means add some crumbled tortilla chips and a slice of avacado....yumm...
I hope you try this soup and enjoy it!
I whipped this together tonight, with just what I had on hand. My family really liked it and convinced me to make it my first post! As I do with all recipes, you can use this one as a guide, and make whatever changes you think will improve it. The fat content is actually lower than calculated, as I drained the fat off the chicken and turkey.
I served this with a dollop of fat free sour cream, a T. of fat free shredded cheddar and some diced green onion (keep in mind these are not added to the calories but they add no fat!) but you can dress it any way you like. I hope you enjoy it!
