    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1-1/4 pound lean ground beef, turkey, or shredded chicken
    1 onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    8oz mushrooms, chopped
    1 (14oz) can of crushed tomatoes
    1 (32oz) bottle reduced-sodium tomato or V8 juice

    1 Tbs ground cumin

    1/4 cup each fresh cilantro and parsley, chopped


In a stock pot, heat olive oil over medium-high setting. Sauté meat/poultr until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside. (I didn't use oil to cook my meat but rather to sauté next mix)

Sauté onion, garlic, peppers and mushrooms until soft, about 5 minutes.

Stir in remaining ingredients, except cilantro and parsley. Cover and simmer 20 minutes. Stir in cilantro and parsley. Cover; simmer 10 minutes longer. Store soup in refrigerator up to 5 days. Freezes well. Makes 16 cups. 1 Serving = 2 cups

    This is in response to Stefka, I calculated the recipe with 93% lean turkey and it came out to 6.6 g of fat and 228.8 calories. Have not made it yet but will soon. - 3/11/13

    This soup is fantastic for anyone on a diet. It is so hearty for a "diet soup" I have made it many times- always do a double batch. I think it is best done with ground beef. - 2/21/16
