Turbo-Charged Weight-Loss Soup Diet

"I am a big fan of the Good Housekeeping Soup Diet and I've enjoyed it just as it is for awhile now. Recently I came across a new recipe in Woman's World magazine which is loaded with Antioxidants and it inspired me to combine the two recipes with a tweak or two here and there. I have posted this recipe in metric measurements as I have found that weights convert better than cups when it comes to vegetables and canned items."

  1. Would have been nice to added a measurement by cup included with the metric. I don't know the metric system so I just have to guess.
  2. Hi,<br/>Just to let you know that I really do appreciate your method of measuring the ingredients, I simply multiply the grams or ml. by .035 to convert to ounces. I gave you 5 stars, and will<br/>rate the soup at a later date, got to be delish (and healthy) Thanks again!! granpappy0
  3. I left out the edamame and used frozen leaf spinach, but otherwise followed the recipe as closely as possible. The metric only measurements threw me so I was guesstimating some of the vegetable quantities. The soup was loaded with veggies and tasty, but next time I will add more. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for PAC 2014.
  4. This is really good!! I used fat free/low sodium chicken broth and doubled the amount. I also subbed an orange pepper for the red, but otherwise used the ingredients listed. It was really easy to make (once you dice and chop all the veggies). Made for Enjoying Soups and Breads in the Photo Forum.
  5. Fiberlicious!
