Longevity Soup is delicious!

Sunday, May 06, 2012

Here is a photo of the quick and easy Longevity Soup from Jeff Novick's Fast Food vol. 1 video. It is fast and easy if you make it the way he does. In this case, I did chop some cabbage and steam fry it prior to adding the rest of the ingredients, but it was fast, easy, and it is very delicious and satisfying! One of our favorites. Makes a very generous pot of soup, as you can see.

To make this soup, I first cooked some pearl barley, which I had chosen as the starch. Then I steam-fried some chopped cabbage, added some diced gingerroot from my freezer, cut open three bags of frozen vegetables (2 soup vegetable mixes, 1 mixed vegetable), thawed some frozen tomatoes from our freezer (you can open a can), opened two cans of kidney beans and drained them, then just brought everything to a boil with an extra 3 c. of water and waited for it to be cooked. Jeff says it cooks in 10 min., but it usually takes 30 min. for my soup to cook to my satisfaction.

Then I added garlic granules and Mrs. Dash's table blend. It is really delicious!

    Calories per cup? I guess I would figure 1/2 c. tomatoes with 1/2 mixed vegetables, and see how many calories that is. Since the cabbage was steam-fried in water, and there are no animal products in there, then you're really looking at vegetables and tomatoes. I would just eat with abandon! It is so good that my mom-in-law kept a quart, and I gave another quart to a WWII vet in our congregation with prostate cancer, so today I'm going for Round Two so that my husband and I have enough for the rest of the week. It is so darn good!

    I should add that there is no added salt, either. No-salt tomatoes and no-salt beans, water, and frozen vegetables. One of my cans of beans had salt in it, but I rinsed it, so for the entire pot, the content was negligible.

    One of my friends had commented so that's how I saw your blog. Mmmm, your soup sounds so good! Do you know right off hand what the calories would be for a cup? Thanks!
