Should your kitchen be organized well, you will always have the ingredients for a delicious and nutritious soup.
Sometimes, however, you desire something unique. Soups with cream are fantastic! They are however high in fat and a bit hefty. Do you really believe that to be healthy? Occasionally, it won't hurt you. If you are concerned about calories, here is an alternative:
Whole Grain Rolls with Creamy Vegetable Soup
Ingredients for four servings
One tablespoon of olive oil Either olive oil or canola oil
One small onion, chopped.
2 garlic cloves, crushed
One kind or mixed vegetables weighing 350g.
700 ml chicken, beef or vegetable stock
One hundred milliliters of low-fat milk.
You can select the spices of your choice.
In a large pot, heat the oil and sauté the onion and garlic until they become golden.
Afterwards, add the vegetables and roast briefly. After adding the stock, allow the vegetables to simmer for 10-15 minutes until they are soft.
Using a stick blender, puree the soup, then stir in 100 ml of low fat milk and season.
Serve with whole grain rolls or toast.
An original cream soup contains much more fat than this healthy dinner recipe. You should use the healthiest vegetable oil you can get for your oil, and replace the cream with low fat milk. Adding it to the soup gives it a creamy texture without loading it with calories. Cream would make a big difference even if it were mixed with full cream milk.
The recipe not only reduces the fat calories, but also ensures that you won't get an excessive amount of carbohydrate calories. Because they don't cause heavy blood sugar fluctuations and are very unlikely to be stored as fat, these are great for diabetics and overweight people. They also fill you much quicker and for longer than the refined versions, helping to prevent overeating and sudden hunger attacks, and giving you lasting energy.
Altogether, this recipe grants you peace of mind regarding calories, so you can simply relish in it.
