    justcallmetoni's Note:

    What could be nicer than a soulful bowl of soup filled with beautiful vegetables, healthy grains and lean protein? Finding one that is also quick and easy to prepare. Since following the WW Core program for two years, I continue to look for recipes that are share the healthy principles of the program. Found this recipe in Better Homes & Gardens and adapted it to my palette. For Core WW members, this is Core plus 2 points for the nectar in the whole dish.

      I came across this recipe when trying to find more used for my quinoa. I really enjoyed. It was a chunky, filling soup.

      What's not to like about this soup? I easily made it vegan by omitting the chicken (I think chickpeas would be great in it!). It's actually more of a stew, and has a hint of sweetness from the juice and sweeter vegetables. My mom was especially glad the zucchini didn't have a chance to get mushy. Filled with veggieness, so very, very healthful. That said, I found the flavor was much more interesting with a generous sprinkle of curry powder in my bowl. No problem to eat leftovers of this! Thanks for posting!
