Another 0 point soup -- just clock full of veggies! I don't eat this as snacks (as I know some people do) but rather as for dinner with sandwiches. This freezes wonderfully in small tupperware containers -- which is great to bring to work and heat up in the micro. Recipe source: www.weightwatchers.com
All that I'm saying is give peas a chance! This is a refreshing and light soup from Christine Cushing -- the buttermilk adds a little tang to balance out the sweet peas. While fresh is best, you can also use frozen peas.
Comfort food at its best. Many people will tell you to soak your beans first (however, I have been told that you should soak dry beans when using a pressure cooker. Please follow manufactorers instructions in this case). I never do. I just wash them and cook them as below. For a really hearty winter meal, serve these with a loaf of hot fresh bread or a pan of corn bread and a pan of old fashioned crisp fried potatoes. These may also be made in the pressure cooker and crockpot.
Every time I make this soup, people rave about it. It couldn't be any easier, and tastes like you've slaved over the stove all day! Delicious, high protein, high fiber, low fat, low calorie! This recipe is a constant in our menu rotation. It's also what I call "Pantry Food" because everything required is stuff we always keep on hand. Perfect for a sudden cold snap that has you craving hot soup!
My grandmother (from Fall River Massachusettes) taught me to make this soup just before I went to college. I tweaked it a little, but not much. This is portuguese soul food. It cures all ills, especially the rainy cabin fever I get here in Seattle each winter.
Note: 12.02.07 I stopped eating meat, but still love to make this soup. Vegetarians... use "Soyrizo" instead of Chourice.
Flavored with Parmesan and garlic and studded with raisins, scrumptious Sicilian meatballs turn vegetable soup into a tempting meal. If the soup waits, the pasta may absorb much of the liquid; just add more water or more stock.
I found this recipe on about.com originally, but it didn't have the nutritional information included.
We *love* this recipe. The stew has a real kick, is easy to throw together in the morning, and is really satisfying.
One of the trendiest soups over here in the UK at the moment is carrot and coriander soup. Coriander is the same thing as cilantro only by a different name. I have enjoyed this soup but because of my dietary requirements have avoided it because creamy soups like this so often use a lot of cream. So, I was happy to find this version of the soup in the August 2008 copy of BBC Good Magazine because it doesn't use any dairy at all. I have now tried the recipe and think it is fantastic. It is very rich and creamy tasting without any at all.
