Soup de jour

 

 

My best memories in college where walking in from the rain to find a large pot of soup on the stove and warm bread in the oven. Having five roommates, soup was a stable because of its affordability and dense flavor. You could feed the whole house with 1 chicken, a few stocks of celery, carrots, onion, and some noodles. It was nights like that that brought us all around the table and wanting more. I love the idea of adding a kick to my soup such as red pepper or curry to help beat the cold, such as the soup I want to share today. Spicy Chicken Broccoli Soup from Robard, provides 13.5 grams of protein per servings, only 8 grams of carbohydrates and 86 calories. This soup is easy to make on the run while keeping to your diet.
