Brooke Shields' Vegetable Health Soup Recipe
"A simple, light and tasty soup for any time of the year." — Jay Christian, author of Hollywood Celebrity Recipes.
- Vegetable cooking spray
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 large sprinkles of Mrs. Dash seasoning
- 1 large bunch carrots, peeled and sliced or 1 bunch broccoli or cauliflower, cut up
- Low-fat cottage cheese
- 1 can (46 oz.) chicken broth, fat skimmed from top
- 2 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.
