Onion Soup ~ Cheap ~ Nutritious ~ So Low In Calories
Onions are very rich in vitamins and minerals. They are antioxidants & anti-inflammatory properties, so very god for arthritis, cholesterol, diabetes, osteoporosis and even a help in fighting cancer. Beef broth & onions, so very low in calories. Add a very thin slice of French bread with melted swiss cheese from the toaster & you have a quick French Onion Soup. Or try a beef shank which will make the beef stock and add the onions...still a budget friendly meal. Beef shank/veggie soup
Soup is a GREAT meal. Fills you up, and is a great way to get your vegetables in and is not carb heavy. Substitute Vegetable stock for Chicken or Beef stock, and if it is a "creamy" soup, go for pureeing instead of adding cream! 210
Soup is a blank canvas - capable of leaping across tables and cookbooks in a single bound to rescue you from hunger. To prevent myself from making gallons of cream-based soups, I tell myself that VEGETABLE Soup is a blank canvas. And in thinking about it, it truly is! Chicken soup is vegetable soup with chicken. Gazpacho is a vegetable soup served cold. The possibilities are endless and the combinations are oh-so delicious! 481
