Looking For Soup Recipes
edited October 2020
I made something last night that came out pretty good. Its somewhat reminiscent of Italian Wedding Soup. I don't measure stuff when making soups, but this is roughly what I used.
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 Tbsp. Chopped Onion
1/2 Tbsp. Chopped Garlic
1 lb. Ground Sweet Italian Sausage
1 Can of Garbanzo Beans (drained)
4 Cups Chicken Broth
Salt & Pepper (and other herbs, if you like)
1 Cup Spinach
1. Put olive oil in pot, then add the chopped garlic and chopped onion and cook until onions are soft.
2. Add the ground sweet italian sausage to the pot. Cook until done. Make sure to stir it so that it crumbles.
3. Add the drained garbonzo beans and the chicken broth.
4. Add salt & pepper, plus whatever other herbs that you like (I added thyme and parsley). Let everything simmer for at least 5 minutes.
5. Turn off the heat and add the spinach.
one can each (or fresh after boiling):
diced green chilies
diced green pepper
about 1 lb of ground beef, turkey, or veggie crumbles (depending on your diet of choice)
taco seasoning to taste
I put it in the crockpot in the morning and eat when the smell in the house is so mouth-watering that I can't stand it anymore. LOL

I call this "Happy accident turkey soup"
rotisserie turkey breast, already cooked
chicken broth, reduced sodium
low sodium v8 juice
*I don't have any measurements because I just added stuff until it tasted good. LOL"
another creation, i call "spur of the moment soup"
8 cups Chicken broth low sodium
2 cans Canellini beans, drained and rinsed
28oz can crushed tomatoes
2 cans white Corn, drained
2 large red potatoes, small dice
1 baking potato, microwaved and mashed.
1 bag Spinach
3 Carrots, washed and peeled, Chopped
1 yellow Onion, chopped
Pepper (black and red pepper)
Here's another one. I probably got the title of it wrong, but the ingredients are correct from what i remember.
1 bag frozen mixed vegetables
1 lb lean ground beef
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 can diced tomato, no salt added
2 cups chicken broth, reduced sodium
ground black pepper
cayenne pepper, to taste
sautee onions to being soft. brown ground beef to being 90% cooked.
once the beef and onions are to desired consistency, add tomatoes and seasonings to liking.
when those are starting to boil, add the frozen veggies. ( The veggies will add some liquid to the soup, so don't add more broth than will create the consistency you want)
allow to simmer for 15 minutes under done to desired tasting.
There are ingredients missing, but I am doing what I remember.
another creation of mine. I call it "Quarantine soup", since it's what I had in the house at that time.
2 cans Beans, drained and rinsed. (i used black and dark red kidney)
1 28oz can Diced tomatoes
1 cup reduced sodium Broth (i used chicken)
1 large bag frozen Green beans, thawed and drained
2 tsp Salt
2 tsp ground black Pepper
2 tsp Garlic powder
2 TB canola Oil
pour oil in a pot and add seasonings.
add green beans and mix around.
add the rest of the ingredients, mix well.
bring to a boil. reduced to simmer for 15 minutes.
yet another creation.
2 Smoked turkey drumstick
3 large Russet poatoes, diced
1 cup Lentils
3 large Carrots, chopped
3 cups low sodium Chicken broth
1 small Onion
2 TB minced Garlic
This is a recipe that has been around for years. I got it from Weight Watchers several years ago. It is very tasty and it was a 0 point recipe.

Here is a soup recipe I found under the MFP BLOG tab. There are always good recipes there if you want to check it out.
Easy White Bean & Spinach Soup
• 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
• 3 small leek bulbs, outer layers removed, chopped
• 1 medium onion, chopped
• 1 teaspoon salt, divided
• 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
• 1 (28-ounce) can low-sodium diced tomatoes (certified gluten-free if necessary)
• 1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained (certified gluten-free if necessary)
• 10 ounces fresh baby spinach
• 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth (certified gluten-free if necessary)
1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2.In a Dutch oven or large oven-safe pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the leek, onion, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are soft, about 5 minutes.
3.Add the tomatoes (plus juices), beans, spinach and broth. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover the pan with a tight-fitting lid and transfer to the oven. Cook until the vegetables are tender and the spinach has wilted, 25 to 30 minutes.
(I took mine out of the oven after 25 minutes and gave it a good stir, and then placed it back in the oven for 5 more minutes).
4. Stir in the other 1/2 teaspoon of salt and enjoy!

Slow Cooker Instructions: Yes, you can make this in a crockpot! Sauté the onions, poblano peppers, and garlic on the stovetop. Then dump the veggies into a large 6+ quart slow cooker and add all remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on high for 2-4 hours, or on low for 5-7 hours.

Tomato parmesan soup
2 large cartons of fat free chicken broth
garlic 2 cloves crushed
1 tsp salt
1lg. onion chopped
I large can of crushed tomatoes
pepper to taste, basil to taste
fat free half and half 1/4 cup
parmesan cheese 1/2 cup grated
Brown onion and garlic and herbs in a healthy oil or 1 tbsp. real butter
then add chicken broth, tomatoes bring to low boil and then turn down on low and add cheese and after 30 minutes add half and half or unsweetened coconut cream , garnish with more parmesan.
you can use your imagination with this base for a great soup creation of your own!
1 beaten egg white
1/2 c soft bread crumbs
1/4 c finely chopped onion
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp black pepper
8 oz lean ground beef
2 14 oz cans reduced sodium beef broth
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes with Italian herbs, drained
1 15 oz can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 c sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 c water
1/2 c dried small bow tie pasta
3 c torn fresh spinach or 1/2 of a 10 oz package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
Combine egg, bread crumbs, onion, garlic powder, and pepper. Add meat and shape into small meatballs. Cook meatballs and set aside. Stir together broth, undrained tomatoes, garbanzo beans, mushrooms, and water. Bring to boiling and add pasta. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for 10-12 minutes or until pasta is tender. Stir in meatballs and spinach. Cook for 1-2 minutes until fresh spinach wilts, or frozen spinach is heated through.
I omit the mushrooms because I don't like them and I use frozen spinach. You can also use any shape of pasta. I have used ditalini, bow ties, cavatelli, and even small shells. I also use the whole egg, and usually add salt to the meatballs (although the recipe doesn't call for it). You could use frozen meatballs, but it's not as good that way. I cook my meatballs in the oven, but you can cook them in a skillet if you prefer (it's a little quicker that way).
Recipe yields about 7 cups of soup and takes about 35-45 minutes from start to finish.

I love this low carb rendition of Toscana Soup:
1 pound italian (or regular, your choice) sausage
1 bunch Kale
1 onion chopped
1 package frozen riced cauliflower
fry up the sausage, when almost done, drain, put back on heat and add onions.
keep cooking until sausage looks done.
tear up the Kale into small pieces and toss in the pot
add the riced cauliflower
add water to suit- the less water, the thicker it is. I put in about 8 cups or so.
Bring it up to a boil, then turn it down and simmer for a couple of hours.
season as desired with salt and pepper.
for a yummy addition, sprinkle some parmesan cheese on each bowl when serving.
