I found this recipe online, listed as a food that is appropriate for Phase 2 of the HCG Diet. I have absolutely no idea what that means, I just know that it only has 35 calories per 8 oz serving, which is music to my ears. It is delicious and filling. The flavor is just fantastic and rich. I hope you like it.
6 medium stalks of celery, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 head of cabbage, chopped
minced garlic cloves, your choice, to your taste
3 cans of chicken broth or stock, preferably low sodium and reduced fat (you could also use vegetable broth)
2 14.5 oz. cans of low sodium diced tomatoes
black pepper, to taste
Pour the whole mess into a large stewpot and simmer for about an hour, covered, until everything gets nice and soft and the richness of the tomatoes and garlic blend together.
This makes a LOT of soup; you’ll have plenty to freeze!
