Rainy day recipe

I saw a recipe floating around on Facebook and Pinterest for a soup that burns more calories than it contains. With a line like that, you have to try it, right?

I made this โ€œfat burning” soup last night, and it was so good, I had to share!



2 TBS olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
3 stalks celery, diced
1 green pepper, diced
*I used 1/2 each green, red, yellow, and orange peppers*
3 carrots, diced
*I had organic baby carrots, and used about 15*
1/2 head cabbage, chopped
4 cups chicken or vegetable broth *organic preferred
1 can diced tomatoes *organic preferred
1 tsp each basil and oregano
1/2 tsp each crushed red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste


In large stock pot, heat oil over medium heat
Add onion, pepper, carrots, and celery, sautee until just tender
Add garlic, sautee 2 min
Pour in broth and stir in spices
Stir in tomatoes and cabbage, bring to a boil
Cover and simmer over med/low until cabbage cooks through
Salt and pepper to taste
Makes a ton, can freeze for later use!
*I diced some cooked
chicken breast I had on hand and added about 1 1/2 cups to soup*

It’s raining here in the Yoop, perfect day for another bowl of soup ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Weekend!
