Wow! Can I cook or what? Normally, no…..but it was soooo cold yesterday, we wanted some soup. I was going to make the weight watchers egg drop soup I had made before, but I was really wanting to save points so came up with this……all on my own…..just call me Chef Sharsum!
WW Plus Points – 1 cup = 0
Eat the whole pot = 1 (you can’t beat that!) Up to 6 cups of chicken broth is 1 point.
1 carton low sodium chicken broth (it doesn’t even have to be the fat-free one)
1 can mixed vegetables (do not drain)
shake some onion powder in it – just a little
about 1/8 tsp. of garlic paste (I love that squeeze stuff – you get it in the produce dept. at Walmart)
about 1/4 tsp. of basil paste (the squeeze stuff)
a liberal shaking of Mrs. Dash (original) – more if you like
a few parsley flakes will make it look like you know what you are doing
black pepper to taste
Optional – add more freebie veggies
Heat and eat……just takes a few minutes. It has just a little bit of spicy (as Lucy says) and ohhhh….so good!
I might just have to keep this on hand all the time these cold days. Right now 3 degrees with windchills of up to -20. Such unusual weather we are having this winter in Missouri. It can stop anytime.
