Six ingredients for something this good and flavorful?
I knew right then and there this soup was going to become a favorite late night snack of mine and I’ve been hooked ever since.

This recipe is also ideal for dieting if you need to loose a pound or two.

All these options are tasty and won’t make you feel like you’re missing out on good food. It will make dieting much more easy to cruise through!
