I've been slowly collecting recipes that work for myself. They have to fit the low enough calorie range, while still having plenty of fiber and other healthy ingredients.
I found this tomato soup on line and it really is delicious and makes a large portion. Thought I'd put it here for anyone that wishes to try it.
1 Tablespoon olive oil.
1 Large onion chopped
2 Large celery stalks chopped
2 Cloves of garlic chopped
1 C cannelleni beans (or any white bean)
1 Chicken cube made into 2 cups of liquid
200g Chicken no skin or bone
5 Large tomatoes chopped (I didnt skin mine)
1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves.
Fry the onion, garlic and rosemary leaves in the oil. Add beans, stock and tomatoes.
Simmer for a few minutes to thicken and spice with salt and pepper. I added cayenne pepper for the heat value.
698.8 calories for it all or 349. calories per portion.
Really delicious, healthy and low calorie.
