Brownie Point Soup

I have been so motivated by Brownie's weight loss, that I too have gone on diet. I have been watching what I eat and making some wise food choices.

I haven't weighed myself since last Thursday, when the scale cried out "One at a time, Please!", but I'm sure I'll be happier with what I see this Thursday.

To help me get "over the hump", I've made this soup. It is almost calorie free, but is still packed with flavour.

Carrot Soup

500g Carrots, scrubbed or peeled
1 Onion, sliced
Juice and Zest of 1 Lemon
3 Chicken Stock Cubes
1 Green Chilli
1 Teaspoon Cumin
Black Pepper
2 Litres of Water

Place all the ingredients together in a large pot.
Cook on medium heat until everything is soft.
Blend until smooth.

To serve, place a dollop of low-fat Cottage Cheese in a bowl, fill with soup so the cottage cheese is just peaking through and sprinkle with a few black sesame seeds.

Jeanne - It is very easy. As for the diet - early days still!
Nina - The cottage cheese and sesame seeds add the drama effect!

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
