Tizza Soup

This past weekend I was watching a French cooking show on the Cooking Network.  She was talking about feeling a little heavy in the middle these days so her show was on a few diet friendly french recipes and Tizza Soup was one of them.  I liked the fact that this soup is very low in calories and has very little fat.  It is something you can have simmering on the stove and have a cup every once in a while when you starting to get hungry.  

This soup is very filling and delicious.  All the vegetables combined makes for a very healthy meal.  Try it, you'll like it!

The Recipe:
Tizza Soup

1 lb. of red potatoes, chopped
1/2 lb of carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
1/2 pound of zucchini or 1 medium zucchini, chopped
2 artichoke hearts
1 large leek, washed throughly and chopped
2 small tomatoes, chopped
1 medium turnip, washed, peeled and chopped
1/2 stalk of celery, chopped
1 cube of chicken or vegetable bouillon
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper 

Yield Around 3 quarts, in a 2 cup serving size about 12 persons

Put all the ingredients, potatoes, carrots, zucchini, artichoke hearts, leeks, tomatoes, turnip and celery into a large stock pot.  Add the bouillon cube, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Cover with water about 1 inch over the veggies.  Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 40 minutes or until veggies are tender.  Using a stick blender, blend mixture until smooth.  If you dont have a stick blender, use a regular blender, but be careful of the hot liquid and only puree a small amount at a time.  Reheat to serve.

Happy Eating!
