It's DELICIOUS! I used olive oil instead of butter and I used 2.5 cups low sodium veggie broth and 2 cups of water. Other than that, I pretty much followed the recipe. I added all the spices (minus the ginger) with the onions (because I was taught to always saute the onion/garlic with the spices! And then I added more of the same spices, plus FRESHLY grated ginger as the recipe indicated. I found it quite delicious!
For some reason, the recipe says that it makes 6 servings - I think that's 6 2 cup servings. I haven't measured it out yet, but I'll probably get around 10-13 1 cup servings. Each 1 cup comes down to around 125 calories (with using 10 servings)! That makes it even more delicious! A filling, tasty, fall soup.
But now my tongue is burnt because I just couldn't wait to taste the soup as it was being made. OUCH! And I'm SO glad that my mood is starting to get better. Cooking has definitely helped :)
So just because I'm curious:
Breakfast: egg, cherry tomatoes = 85 calories
Snack: 1/2 larabar = 100 calories
Lunch: apple (80 calories) with powdered peanut butter (45 calories), and filet mignon (MAX 250 calories) = MAX 375 = MAX 400 calories
Snack: plum = 30 calories
Dinner: 3/4 cup butternut squash/apple soup (100 calories), snacking on apples and the soup as it was made (uhm...no more than 1 apple was consumed, so I'll estimate 50 calories, but MAX it at 100 calories) = MAX 200 calories
Total: 815 calories = MAX 900 calories.
