Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Loved it! Much more flavorful than expected. I do recommend adding a little bit of salt, freshly ground pepper, and garlic powder during cooking. Submitted by:

I used 2 large carrots, 3 very small parsnips, 1 good-sized leek. I used low-salt veg bouillon and omitted the green onions. I divided it into 6 servings. I carefully weighed the ingredients and found the nutrient data as listed to be correct. It did not spike my BG at all. And it was VERY GOOD! Submitted by:

As a diabetic, I cannot eat this soup because of the high sugar content of parsnips and carrots. I'll stick with cabbage and other greens in my soups. Submitted by:

I have made notes of what everyone else added. Sounds better and better. Regardless of whatever the calorie count is, it still gets leveled out in your own daily count. Submitted by:

This sounds great going to try it. Buy the low sodium or no salt broth, this cuts it in half. The calories are right carrots and parsnips are high in natural sugar. Submitted by:

The calories are calculated using bomemade chicken broth. Substitute store-bought broth to save 20 - 65 cals per serving. But, using store-bought broth might not result in as flavorful a soup. And using homemade broth can eliminate the need to add salt since since it's probably in the broth. Submitted by:

the calories seem a bit high, I guess it is the homemade broth. If you use herb ox boullion, it's only 40 calories rather than the almost 400 for homemade stock
the soup needs a little more seasoning and is very good

I haven't made this soup yet, but wanted to comment on the questions about the calorie count. Parsnips and carrots have a very high sugar content, so that is likely where the calories are coming from. 173 sounds about right for 1/4 of this recipe. Submitted by:

I did a recipe calkultation on it and it comes up right, the two parsnips come up to 277 calories...that doesn't sound right somehow. I also did it broth vs stock, not much diff. Submitted by:

I thought the calorie count looked high, too. Looking at the details of the nutritional info, it says 4 cups chicken stock used, which leads me to believe the 173.1 is for the whole recipe of 4 servings. What does everyone else think? Submitted by:
