“This is a very easy recipe that I have changed over the years many times, (this time there is no added salt, fat or sugars, but loads of herbs and flavor). This is a spin off of my Marmie's No Cabbage Fat Burning Soup. (That one was used to help overweight patients lose weight before surgery.) In an effort to further reduce fat's and salt I adapted my old recipe yet again! No Salt added, no sugar added, no fat added, ... I like that! It is pretty much a 'free food' when I am dieting. We like to have a bowl for lunch or before a meal, such an easy way to get in our daily vegs on a regular basis. P.S. start with a lower amont of chili paste and pepper if you don't like much zip... as well - herbs and seasonings are to taste ... we just like these ones best. Half the fun of cooking is to create your own version of a dish...Add chicken perhaps to compliment the sage undertone? Enjoy!”
