I feel so happy, I thought I'd share with everyone my little pea soup I threw together last night.
1 pound dried split peas (green or yellow)
1 medium onion chopped
1 1/2 cups thickly chopped carrots (about 1/2-3/4")
1 TBSP minced garlic
2 small bay leaves
2 cubes beef bouillion
6 cups water (approx)
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
Natural salt to taste
I just tossed it all together in a stockpot and let it simmer on the stove for an hour or so (lost track of time doing other things). It's a little thick so I will probably add a little more water next time.
When I plugged it into SP this is what it told me for nutrition info:
Total of 702 calories for the whole batch
127 carbs, 4 fat and 47 protein. I just added up the fiber myself for the individual ingredients and I came up with 45 for the whole batch.
I split it into four servings (although you could do smaller if you want) and it's about a cup to a cup and a half of pea soup for approx 175.5 cals, 1g fat, 12g protein and 11g fiber.
I think it's really filling and leaves room for higher cal items during the rest of the day. :)
Thanks for letting me share.
