Soup Kitchen

I picked up a copy of Gizzi’s Kitchen Magic from the library at the weekend which was well timed for my brace to be tightened as amongst the many recipes I planned to try a couple would suit the delicate nature of my teeth the days after

Over the years I’ve never been much of a soup fan but getting older my tastes are changing and I’m becoming more daring – and of course there is the added bonus of soups being low in WW points!

Mexican Chicken soup sounded as good a place to start as any and I wasn’t disappointed

Easy to make, filling and most importantly tasty!

The whole recipe was 9 points although admittedly 5 of those came from tortillas fried in olive oil. Delicious non-traditional croutons they were but next time 1 not 2 tortillas would be sufficient fried by healthier methods. Alternatively a packet of WW tortilla chips would do the job just as well

Whilst on a roll last night I made Chinese Chicken & Mushroom Soup for a friend and I

I wasn't too keen on this one although my friend said they enjoyed it (and I hope they weren't just being polite!). The soup itself was a low 5 points and instead of the prawn toasts suggested I served with vegetable spring rolls and some prawn crackers which bumped the points up a little

I enjoyed my first dabble in soup making and would love to hear your favourite soup recipes

  1. you are loving your cooking!

    Are you watching Gizzi in the afternoons - I know you're at work,but are you recording it and watching it later? Lots of great tips on healthy cooking. I want to try the cheesecake that she made earlier this week.

    Love her retro look. I had liquid eyeliner on yesterday, but it didn't look half as good as hers!


  2. Oh to look so glam whilst baking!
    Will send you the chicken and sweet potato recipe soon.
