Some say this soup is the secret to their weight-loss success. It's a great midday snack or dinner appetizer.

 

Ingredients

 

 

 

2 clove(s) garlic clove(s), minced (medium)   

 

1 medium onion(s), diced   

 

2 medium carrot(s), diced   

 

1 medium sweet red pepper(s), diced   

 

1 stalk(s) celery, diced (medium)   

 

2 small zucchini, diced   

 

2 cup(s) green cabbage, shredded   

 

2 cup(s) Swiss chard, chopped   

 

2 cup(s) cauliflower, small florets   

 

2 cup(s) broccoli, small florets   

 

2 tsp thyme, fresh, fresh, chopped   

 

6 cup(s) vegetable broth   

 

2 Tbsp parsley, or chives, fresh, chopped   

 

1/2 tsp table salt, or to taste   

 

1/4 tsp black pepper, or to taste   

 

2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, optional   

Instructions

  • Put garlic, vegetables, thyme and broth into a large soup pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to low and simmer, partly covered, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in parsley or chives; season to taste with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Yields about 1 cup per serving.

Notes

  • If you like thick soups, consider pureeing this recipe in the pot with an immersion blender.

    There are so many variations on this recipe. Add or leave out vegetables to suit your taste.

    Save time by using frozen vegetables instead of fresh ones (though the texture of the soup might change a bit). You can also buy small amounts of pre-cut vegetables from your supermarket's salad bar.

Awesome job ladies!  And congrats Christine!!  woot.gif

 

I did ok in Ottawa... it was a meeting for work and some coworkers insisted on taking me out for drinks because I'm getting married soon.  It's so tough to say no when people are just so excited for me.  Oh well, I'm doing my best and I'm pretty happy with how my dress looks.  Only 11 days until departure -- ahhh!!!

I was excited too, because I haven't seen anyone else with that date....and it a great date given the 4th month + 7 day = 2011 (or at least that's how fiancee said he is going to remember the date in the future with the whole 4+7=11 thing). :)  Planning is going well, but I can't believe how close it is getting.  Was on the stepper at the gym last night, and thinking we need to start cracking down on our welcome newsletters, ceremony script, music list, FI's clothes, and so on and so on.  How about you?  How are plans going?

I'm super excited!  But also going a little crazy... it's a busy time at work.  I still need to look over the ceremony script, work on the seating plan, and put the OOT bags together (or at least pack them).  Sometimes I start freaking out, but it will all be good in the end, no matter what.  I'm off to pick up my dress today, yay!! 

 

Good luck with your planning too... it will come before you know it.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
