“This is from Sunset magazine. I tweaked it a tad, adding more veggies and herbs, so that it has only about 75 cals per ladle, which I think is about a cup. I got 15 ladles out of the pot. You could make croutons out of french bread and put that on top, but I omitted that for this version to save on carbs and cals. Really good! I made a huge pot and have been bringing it to work every day.”
