I've adapted this recipe to suit my Weight Watchers Points Plan. The chickpeas can be replaced with meat, beans or pasta, but only to the same value (3 points). Use a sugar free canned tomato soup concentrate if you can. The whole recipe is only 5 points. This soup is ideal for freezing. I freeze it in one person lunch size portions so I can take it out and microwave it for lunch instead of eating rubbish. It is very filling and satisfying with a wholegrain roll.
- 1 (425 g) can condensed tomato soup
- 2 cups water
- 1 beef stock cube
- 2 teaspoons garlic
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 (400 g) can chickpeas
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 stalk celery, sliced
- 1 large carrot, diced
- 1⁄2 red capsicums or 1⁄2 yellow capsicum, diced
- 1 cup vegetables, of your choice (0 points)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- Soften the chopped onion in the oil.
- Add all other ingredients to the pot.
- Season to your taste.
- Cook 20 minutes or until vegetables just soft.
- Serve with a crusty wholemeal bun.
- If you use frankfurters for your meat, that lovely smokey taste they have makes this soup particularly nice.
