Soup--A magical weight loss tool
"Amazing powers of soup . . . Weight Loss"
And in honor of this honor, here is another fantastic magical weight loss soup recipe:
Curried Cauliflower Soup (not pictured above)
(2 cups = 1 WW point)
vegetable broth for sauteing
1.5 cups halved and sliced onions
1 tsp curry powder
4 cups vegetable broth
4 cups chopped cauliflower
.5 tsp salt
2 cups shredded zucchini, about 2 small or 1 med-large
Place a stock pot over medium heat. Coat the bottom of the pot with vegetable stock. When the stock starts to bubble and add the onions and curry powder. Cover and cook for 4 or more minutes, stirring occasionally. If onions start to stick to bottom of pot, add a few tbsp of broth and lower heat a touch.
When onions are translucent, add the broth, cauliflower, salt and 2 cups of water to the pot. Bring the soup to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Cover the pot and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Puree the soup in the pot with a hand/immersion blender (or in a blender or food processor and return to the pot). Stir in the zucchini. Taste the soup and add more salt or curry powder to your taste. Ladle the soup into bowls--you can reserve a bit of the shredded zucchini to use as a garnish.
