An easy and low cal recipe!

I didn't do a Menu plan this week because, well...... I am tired and just plain got behind. Which is ok. I am giving myself an out and doing lots of pulling from the freezer. :)

That being said, I am sharing another diabetic recipe that I have found that is easy and yummy. (Not to mention low calorie, low fat and balanced.)


Beef Vegetable Soup

1 beef shank bone with 1lb. meat
2-1/2 quarts water
2 bay leaves
1/3 cup chopped celery leaves
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp Morton Lite Salt ® Mixture
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 envelope (1oz.) onion soup mix
1 can (15oz.) stewed tomatoes with juice
1 package (10oz.) frozen mixed vegetables
1 cup peeled, diced potatoes
1 cup sliced celery

Remove any fat from the beef.

In a large, covered soup pot, simmer the beef bone with meat in water with bay leaves, celery leaves, parsley, Morton Lite ® Salt Mixture, pepper, and onion soup mix until meat is tender, about 2-1/2 hours.

Remove the one, meat and bay leaves. Chill broth and remove any fat. Cut meat into bite size pieces and return to broth. Discard bone and bay leaves.

Add tomatoes, frozen vegetables, potatoes, and celery.

Cover and simmer for 25 minutes. Serve hot.
