What are some good low-cal but THICK soups?|
I had some cream of potato soup from concentrate (without un-concentrating, that's how thick I'm thinking) without realizing the cal content (don't ask, I've had an awful day)
So I panicked, but since I'm pms-y too I had some baked beans (about 300ish) and 40 cals worth of roasted bell peppers
So all in all I had over 500 cals in one sitting. Shitshitshit. Anyways.
Soup ideas? Pretty please???
if you like clam chowder, campbell's select new england clam chowder 98% fat free is pretty decent for canned soup.. and the entire can is just 200 calories.
mix chopped carrots, celery, onion, garlic, turnip, fresh herbs and summer squash in a food processor with a bit of broth and mix a scoop or so into otherwise broth-y soups (about 25 cal per half cup) to desired thickness.

dissolve 1 chicken stock cube in 500mL water in a saucepan. Add 500g carrots and cook. Add a tsp ginger (powder is ok) and tsp curry paste and mix. Blend it all.
Makes about 2 big bowls of it, tastes really good and is 1/2 a point on the weightwatchers website, so around 50 calories or less, i think.
