Ahh! Two treasures of summer – watermelon and basil – in one refreshing, super-easy soup. And so healthy. Many soups are full of heart-damaging saturated fat and sodium. For example, a bowl of Sweet Corn Soup at Chili’s Restaurant has 20 grams of saturated fat (the equivalent of two Big Macs) and 960 milligrams of sodium (more than half what we should have for the entire day). Our Tomato, Watermelon, and Basil Soup has zero fat and a mere 15 milligrams of sodium.
If you want a snack or meal idea that’s both filling and slimming, you really can’t beat this Barley Vegetable Soup. Plus, research has found that barley helps lower cholesterol levels. And you’ll love barley’s slightly nutty, earthy flavor.
The beauty of this Lebanese Lentil Soup is that it tastes rich and creamy but contains no added fat, which makes it a perfect recipe if you’re trying to lose weight.
