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
Very close to my mom's ham and bean soup.
*Update 2/5/08* My mom called and said she never used a bay leaf in her soup so if I'm going to keep her name on this recipe I need to remove the bay leaf :-) -- I always listen to my mom (well at least now!)
This hearty soup is just bursting with savory flavor - which is surprising considering how easy it is to make!
I make it in the morning and then cool it and put it in the frig until about 30 minutes before dinner. While I'm warming the soup up, I cook my noodles.
I was in the mood to make up a soup this cold winter evening and this is what I came up with. We have found we really like the shell pasta the best. I've also started cooking my noodles and veggies together. I cook the noodles for about 5 minutes, add the frozen vegetables and bring to a boil again. I then cook them for another 7 minutes and drain.
When I ran across Chef #55221's recipe for Recipe #155375, I thought it sounded like something my family would love. Being on a "lower fat" diet, there was no way I could make it as written though. I was really pleased with how well the recipe modified to meet my dietary needs. It was still rich and delicious, and everyone loved it. Here is my lightened up version.
I fall back on this recipe when I need some chicken noodle soup prepared in under 30 minutes. I prefer to broil my chicken tenders about 6 minutes per side or until juices run clear. This produces the moistest, tenderest chicken, in my opinion. I serve it with Recipe #96447.
My husband's great aunt make this for him all the time growing up. She used a pressure cooker and chicken legs in the original recipe but we have found we like the beef better. And since I don't own a pressure cooker, I converted it for use in the crock pot. Even the kids love this vegetable soup. Especially when I serve it with homemade whole-wheat bread (#94990).
Response to reviewer: The sugar is to keep the soup from being too salty. If you are using salt-free vegetables I would agree that you need to cut back on the sugar.
I am tired of the cost and similar taste of all the canned soups out there, but I wanted something that was almost as easy to fix for lunch. As an added plus, my son said it was the best vegetable soup he had ever had! I've used all the combinations of the 3 types of vegetable mixes and have liked them all. I like adding the chickpeas for my protein, but the family prefers the chicken.
