0 POINT ORIENTAL SOUP

Recipe by charski

 

3 cans FF chicken broth (14.5 oz cans)

1 package frozen Oriental-style stir fry veggies (about 1 pound)

1 can (small flat can) Bamboo shoots

1 cup sliced mushrooms

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons fish sauce (or add another tablespoon soy)

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon garlic chili paste (or to taste)

juice of 1 large lemon

 

Bring chicken broth to a boil, add veggies and turn off heat. Add remaining ingredients and stir to blend. You can adjust the seasonings to taste, adding more or less soy, vinegar, etc. til you get the flavor and "heat" you want...I use this as a substitute for my favorite, Hot & Sour soup. Still 0 points! If you want to make it into Hot & Sour, you can add beaten eggbeaters to the boiling soup, and some shredded lean chicken or pork - but you'll have to account for the points.

EASY 1 POINT BISCUITS TO GO WITH 0 POINT SOUP

Recipe from Suzy

 

I have made them adding 3 TBS of fat-free shredded cheese (add 1 pt) and garlic and they tasted similar to the ones from Red Lobster.

 

Makes 2 biscuits

 

Ingredients:

 

6 tbsp self-rising flour

3 tbsp skim milk

1 1/2 tsp non-fat plain yogurt

 

Set oven at 425 degrees. Mix ingredients together, spray pan with nonstick spray and drop biscuits onto it. This recipe makes 2 biscuits. My leader suggested spraying the tops with non-stick butter flavored spray but with or without they are excellent. I like to put a cup of strawberries over them. Bake for 10-13 minutes.

I NEVER COOK, but I got adventerous yesterday (after my first meeting in 25 years). I did the 0 point soup that is in the 1st meeting book.

 

My family LOVED it!

Also, my teenaged son said he was "proud" of me for doing something about my weight.

 

It was a great day!

Here is a hint on making the zero point soup. Buy the cole slaw mix in the produce section and use that. You do not get the 'cooked cabbage' taste, just a lot of bulk.

I also use the bagged cole slaw. Makes it much easier to make. I also pour in a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dry salad mix instead of all the spices. Keeps me from having to measure all of that stuff out and it really gives it a good flavor. I also experiment weekly with different veggies!! Can you tell I really rely on this stuff to keep me OP????? It is my lifesaver!!!!

Since my family is Eastern European in origin, I make my cabbage soup the way my mom makes it: using diced canned tomatoes & tomato juice as the liquid, and seasoning with Splenda & lemon juice, salt, pepper and garlic. And I sometimes use coleslaw mix instead of shredding cabbage by hand.

 

Another good 0-point soup can be made by cooking cauliflower & sliced onions in chicken broth, seasoning with S&P, and pureeing. Very substantial and rib-sticking.
