Dick's Weight Reduction Soup
"Vegetable soup to help weight loss. It works." Recipe submitted by Dick DeVoe of Englewood, Florida.
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes with roasted garlic
1 (49-ounce) can low-fat chicken broth
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 pound baby carrots, cut to size (optional)
1 (20-ounce) package 15 bean soup mix
8 to 10 celery ribs, chopped
1 to 2 large onions, chopped
4 to 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/8 teaspoon gravy master, or other gravy mix to taste
- Use a large pot (5-quart). Pour broth in with all other ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer. Let simmer 3 to 4 hours.
- This is enough soup for about 10 hearty servings.
Makes 10 to 12 servings.
Tip: The longer and lower it simmers, the better the flavor. It's even better rewarmed.
