Hot soup that’s filling, nutritious, and hits the spot…without many calories at all

By Chantzy Weinstein

 

Want to enjoy a hearty, filling no-guilt side? This all-veggie minestrone-style soup hits the spot. I like to save the chopping work and use a vegetable chopper to chop up the vegetables (then they’re nice and even too). Add shredded cooked chicken to your soup and make it a complete meal.

  1. I love he recipe and will make,it for peasach this year, but I need to point out that you really shouldn’t be using Splenda. This is an exotoxin for the brain. You would be better off with a little sugar or honey than this terrible chemical. For your health and that of your family, try to get the Splenda out of your diet.
