This is my go-to soup during the cold winter months. I make a big pot of it on Sunday and eat it throughout the week. A fellow WW member encouraged me to start eating soups (which is perfect for me because it’s my favorite food) to stay healthy during the winter months and I’m so glad she did! As busy working mom, this is a must for me. This soup is full of nutrients is like vitamins A and E that help boost your immune system and loaded with zero point veggies to keep you full and satisfied. I just love soup because you cook a big pot of it once but can eat it for many meals. Plus, it’s so easy to make and versatile which is a bonus! So put on some music, enlist your family to be your sous chefs (thank you DH!), and start chopping those veggies for some delicious zero point WW soup!
· 2 lbs 99% fat free ground chicken or turkey
· 1 large Vidalia onion (diced)
· 3 garlic cloves (diced)
· 2 large yellow squash (or one yellow one green, peeled and cubed)
· 1 head of broccoli (I even cut part of the stem into tiny pieces and cut
the florets into small pieces)
· 4 carrots (peeled and cubed)
· 1/2 butternut squash (cut into one inch cubes)
· 1 bag organic baby spinach leaves
· 1 bag cauliflower rice (or alternately rice a cauliflower head yourself
in a food processor)
· 1 quart low sodium fat free chicken broth
· 3 Tbsps. curry powder
· 2 Tbsps. Anise seed
· 3 Tbsps. Mrs. Dash seasoning (sodium free)
· 1 Tbsps. Salt (I prefer Himalayan sea salt)
· ½ Tbsp. black pepper
· 2 quarts water
Grab the largest soup or stockpot you have. This makes a lot of soup!
1. Brown the meat in the bottom of the pot breaking up the meat into medium/small pieces. Add the anise seasoning, ½ of the curry powder and ½ of the Mrs. Dash seasoning. Once browned, add the chicken broth to the pot and bring to a boil.
2. Meanwhile, cut all the vegetables. Add the vegetables into the pot with the remaining seasonings (including salt and pepper) and the water.
3. Cover and let simmer for one hour.
Adjust seasoning to your liking when serving. This soup will remain in the fridge for up to a week if it lasts that long! You can also freeze it to have a healthy WW meal waiting. Enjoy!
