I love to make a big batch of this Amazing Veggie Soup to keep in the refrigerator to use as a quick snack, to stave off the “mindless munching through cooking dinner” habit, or as an appetizer. A cup of this before heading out the door for social outings even helps me avoid succumbing to “off plan” appetizers. Feel free to customize this for your tastes, or to adjust with whatever veggies are left in the refrigerator or available in the freezer. For instance, I keep the base recipe in the fridge, but wanted a little something different for lunch yesterday~so I added a bit of worcestershire sauce and some crumbled goat cheese for a whole new twist.
If you prefer a thicker veggie soup, prepare the recipe, then divide in half. Puree one-half in a blender or food processor, then fold back into the remaining half. Instant thickening without adding in fillers or calories.
Store in the freezer in individual microwavable portions. Remove, heat, and enjoy for maximum freshness and nutrition.
Originally adapted from a Weight Watchers recipe, many clients have told me this soup has been a lifesaver.
