Low fat vegetable soups are very nutritious, and give you energy without fat.
One of my favourite soups is the Magic Garden Soup.
You can cook it quickly and easily and, because of this, you can always plan to have the ingredients available to prepare this soup when you feel you need something tasty to eat without the fat.
This is a very nice and lite evening meal (or afternoon tea?). And a great "emergency meal" when you come home and need something hot.
2/3 cup sliced carrot
1/2 cup of diced onion
1 tsp minced garlic
3 cups of beef or veggie broth
1.5 cups of diced green cabbage
1/2 cup of green beans
1 Tbsp. tomato paste
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup of diced zucchini
This is what you do:
In large saucepan, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, saute the carrot, onion, and garlic over low heat until softened, about 5 minutes.
Add the broth, cabbage, beans, tomato paste, basil, oregano, and salt, and bring to a boil.
Lower heat and simmer till the beans are tender.
Stir in zucchini and heat for about 4 minutes.
Serve hot and accompany with rice crackers.
