1 15 oz can fat free chicken broth 1 15 oz can corn; drain & rinse 1 15 oz can black beans; drain & rinse 115 oz can fat free refried beans 1 15 oz can no salt added diced tomatoes...( I use rotel for a kick) stir together and heat, simmer to combine flavors. This is from an SP user & called 5 can soup. It looks rather icky, because of the refied beans, its taste is amazing!

I make a veggie soup of nothing but vegetables. For instance, chopped veggies, cabbage, onion, green pepper, carrots and diced potatoes. Drain and rinse a can each of green beans, corn and peas (or use frozen). Add diced tomatoes with the juice, enough water or beef broth to cover. Add salt and pepper to taste.choice. Cook until all the vegetables are tender. I don't use a recipe for this and sometimes substitute other veggies like cauliflower, broccoli, lima beans, etc. I also substitute different spices for variation, such as basil, thyme, oregano or whatever you like. If you like heat, add a can of rotel. This soup is simple but I keep it made and it solves the problem of getting all my vegetables in for the day, plus it is very filling.
Lentil and Kale Soup I've used this recipe lately - http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/lentil-soup-recipe.html. I skipped the grains of paradise, doubled the celery and carrots, and add LOTS of kale in the last 5-10 minutes of cooking. So yummy, healthy and filling! Serve with a side salad.

I fixed a soup this past weekend that is really nice, In a Dutch Oven 1Ts of olive oil, sauté garlic, onion, mushrooms for about 2-4 minutes. Add 1 can of fire roasted tomatoes (or any that you prefer) and simmer for about 2-4 minutes, I added what ever veggies I had in the freezer, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts either halved or quartered, poblano peppers, asparagus halved or cut in smaller pieces, 1 c of cannellini beans, 2 sm. cans of V8 hot and spicy juice(you can use bigger cans but I made enough just for me and my lunch through the week). Carrots in a glass jar, I was out of the fresh ones. Just add them in at the end to just heat through. Instead of broth I just used water and put in curry, basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, little salt, pepper and red pepper flakes (optional). Really fills you up and not a whole lot of calories., I usually eat 2-3 cup portions for lunch and less if I eat it with dinner. I like my soup with a little heat but, you can make it as spicy, hot or as mild as you like. I have really lost some belly fat with this soup.

1 onion, chopped 3 stalks celery, chopped 4 clove garlic, minced 1 pound chicken breasts 1 can diced tomatoes 1 can Rotel (or other tomatoes that are labeled Mexican style) 6 cups chicken broth 2.5 teaspoons of taco seasoning (or use 1.5 t cumin, .5 t salt, and .5 t pepper) 1 can drained and rinsed black beans 1 can corn, drained
I simmer everything but the beans and corn for about an hour. Then I take out the chicken, shred it, put it back in with the beans and corn and heat it for about 5 more minutes.
I also need more soup recipes! I make a pot every Sunday and freeze part of it in individual servings. It's almost like having homemade TV dinners.
Potato soup - water, chicken stock, potatoes, carrots, celery, onion. Simmer until veggies are cooked, then add turkey brats, usually add 1 brat per person. Simmer a bit longer, add a little skim milk, and some 2% cheese and serve. Yum!

Kale, mushrooms, onion & garlic in a light chicken or vegetable broth. Or plain water works instead of broth if I sautee the onion, garlic & mushrooms first in the soup pot until the onions are really caramelized, then add the water, salt to taste, and add the kale at the end. Surprisingly tasty for such simple ingredients.
I actually LOVE the Progresso soups, especially soups that offer you only 80 to 120 calories per cup. I do like to make homemade soup during the winter too, it makes the house smell good while it is cooking! Soup is a great way to cut down calories!

1 cup green pepper, chopped 1 medium onion, chopped 1 (10 ounce) can fat free cream of chicken soup 1 1/2 cups skim milk 1 lb Velveeta 2% cheese, cubed 1 pound or 1 large head broccoli chopped black pepper to taste DO NOT add salt Sauté onion and green pepper in butter Pam.
Combine all ingredients except broccoli , cook low until Velveeta is melted Add the broccoli cook about an hour or until broccoli is done.
This is my favorite winter soup- you have to plan ahead to make this one (have it cook while your at work or school in the crockpot). It's also on the salty side- I love salt, so please make changes if your watching your salt.
Green Chili Chicken Soup crockpot soup- 4-5 hours high 8-9 hours low
2 frozen breasts of chicken 6 cups water (or chicken stock for more flavor, but will add more sodium) 1 taco seasoning packet (use cumin and crushed red pepper flakes if your watching your salt) 1 can green chiles chopped 1 can black beans- drained 1 Jar hot salsa
In a crockpot cook chicken with water and taco seasonings until you can shred with a fork (~8 hours low). After chicken is shredded add in green chilies, black beans and the jar of hot salsa and cook on high for 1 hour- till nice and hot!
I usually like to top this off with 2 TBS of daisy light sour cream (it's only 40 calories and makes it creamy!)
I like to make chicken and rice soup, curry, and italian wedding soup. Chicken and ricele can really be dressed up or down- You can add whatever you have handy and customize it. I use an heirloom red rice because it has more flavor, texture and fiber than white rice (and it is a little more 'fun' than brown rice).
I'll also make big batches of pasta for left overs when I get tired of soup. Last night was gnocchi with meat sauce (the sauce included a jarred tomato pasta sauce, 2 whole bell peppers, half an onion, and garlic). It will be a nice change from the tons of soup I have been eating lately, and it reheats really well. Plus, it is the perfect breakdown for your macros- 48.2% carb, 27.5% fat, 24.3% protein (plus 5 grams of fiber).
