When I make soup, I usually saute my veggies in oil to get them partially cooked and to impart the flavor in the oil. Because of time, I just added them to the stock. They will cook that way, but will boil instead and have a different - but good - taste. This soup is a "short cut" soup that will tastes delicious and fill your craving for homemade soup in a lot less time than cooking up a whole chicken. It's the kind of recipe that you can increase or decrease very easily, just add more or less of everything! And bonus: it's healthy and low calorie. (BTW: Please excuse the cleavage, I did not know how low the shirt was! Won't happen again, promise. : -)
If you calorie counting, or points plus counting, measure out a serving of rice to keep you on track for your daily count.
I visited my friend, Emily, the other day and she graciously bestowed on me the bounties of her garden. When I told her I was going to make salsa with the little yellow plum tomatoes, she requested I add it to my Friday Flick. Here you go, Emily!
