Dr. Oz’s Belly-Blasting New Year’s Soup

“This recipe is based on one from a Dr. Oz December 2011 episode where he gave away many Vitamix blenders that cost about $500 each. Fortunately, the directions say you can make this in a blender, which I will have to do while I save up my money. I only use 1 tablespoon of chili powder as 2 tablespoons is too much heat for my tastes. Tip: if you like this and make a lot of it, I saw on another of his shows that it’s much cheaper to soak dry chickpeas than to use canned chick peas, also known as garbanzo beans.”
