Super Diet Secret Soup

Super Diet Secret Soup

Introduction

A super easy recipe, that can be adapted to your own vegetable preferences.

Soup is a great diet food that becomes a smart vegetarian choice, by the simple addition of great northern beans, which I find one of he heartiest of beans. They don't cook apart and they add a delightful richness to the soup.

Use dry beans for added flavor.

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    * Beans, great northern, 1.5 cup
    * Celery, raw, 1 cup, diced
    * Carrots, raw, 1 cup, chopped
    * Onions, raw, 1 cup, chopped
    * Vegetable Broth, 8 cup
    * Olive Oil, 1 tbsp (remove)
    * Salsa, .25 cup (remove)
    Fresh herbs of choice

Directions

Before you start cooking, prepare your vegetables and place by the side of the stove in dishes.

Heat 2 T of oil in a heavy dutch over and begin by sauteing the onions for 2 minutes, stirring constantly until light golden. Add carrots and celery and continue cooking for 2 more minutes.

Add the 8 cups of vegetable broth. Add beans and cover. Bring to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes.

Add 1/4 cup of green salsa. I prefer Goya salsa verde because it is spicy and not sweet but use what you prefer. Turn off the pot and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Taste at this point and correct the seasonings.

Return soup to a rapid boil, turn down to a simmer and continue to cook until beans are tender. Remember the longer you cook this soup, the more flavorful it becomes.

Add the herbs of your choice. I like marjoram, rosemary or chervil. If you don't have fresh herbs, use the best dried herbs you can afford.

Serve in mugs, with a sprinkle of cheese (parmesan) if desired.
