Vegetable Soup

"A simple, light and tasty soup for any time of the year." — Jay Christian, author of Hollywood Celebrity Recipes.



  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • large onion, chopped
  • large sprinkles of Mrs. Dash seasoning
  • large bunch carrots, peeled and sliced or 1 bunch broccoli or cauliflower, cut up
  • Low-fat cottage cheese
  • can (46 oz.) chicken broth, fat skimmed from top
  • medium-size granny smith apples, peeled and chopped


Coat a Teflon pot with vegetable cooking spray. Sauté apples and onion in pot, sprinkled with seasoning, just until wilted. Stir in carrots or other vegetables. Add broth and heat to boiling; cover and simmer vegetables until tender.

Place soup mixture, half at a time, into a blender; puree until smooth. Serve soup hot or cold with a dab of cottage cheese in the center. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired. 

Vegetable Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Vegetable Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
