I am happy to report to having lost 30 pounds in exactly 2 months on my new eating plan.
I have a lot more to go... but I know I can do it forever because it so easy and makes so much sense!
Anyway... I have been LIVING on this particular soup and I wanted to share it.
I make a HUGE batch and pour it into a HUGE Lock N Lock container, and Bill and I take cups full each time we feel like having super nutrition.
It's Butternut Squash soup... and it is DIVINE!!
And sooo easy...
Butternut Squash Soup
1 peeled, seeded and cubed butternut squash...
(or if you aren't cheap like me, buy it all cut at at Costco.. about 2 bags.)
1 to 2 containers of fat free chicken stock (low sodium)
1/2 chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 T Olive Oil
In a deep, preferably ceramic coated cast iron, but a deep soup pot will do fine too,
add the olive oil and onion and saute until translucent, add garlic and saute for 1 minute more,
add the cubed squash and the stock
and cook until all the squash is soft.
Pulverize until smooth as silk with a hand mixer or a food processor and add salt and pepper to taste.
It is LUSCIOUS!!!
I pour it into a coffee mug and microwave until warm and sprinkle with curry...
It had virtually no fat, only 100 calories per 12 oz portion, and tons of
vitamins and fiber!
