Loel Solomon is one of the leaders in our national Kaiser Permanente Community Benefits program. He has enough energy to light up half of San Leandro. With two little kids, he and his wife are often too busy to cook. He told me I needed to include the cooking time and the number of pans any recipe requires.
This week's recipe for a light and fresh soup requires one pan and 30 minutes or less, depending on whether or not someone can help chop.
If you're feeling adventurous, prepare your own stock ahead of time using leftover vegetable scraps.
Those hungering for carbs may add crushed tortilla chips or cooked rice.
This is a great recipe to use for a "leftover" dinner. Just reheat the soup, chop the fresh toppings during the reheat time and eat.
