I am on a soup kick. Last week it was Chicken & Spinach with Pesto soup, this week I gave carrot and celery a try – I am glad I did. Not only are these soups full of healthy fresh vegetables they are also good for me trying to watch my weight which I am not very good at.
This particular soup was absolutely delicious and apart from some fat free half & half, and of course a little bit of white wine, it is incredibly low fat.
Carrot & Celery Soup
2 cups carrots – chopped
2 cups celery – chopped
1 small onion – chopped
1tsp grated ginger
2 cups vegetable stock
1/4 cup white wine
2 tablespoons of fat free half & half
Heat the olive oil, add the ginger and chopped onion and sauté until transculent.
Add the chopped carrots and celery and cook until just tender – about 10 minutes. Add the vegetable stock and wine and cook until the vegetables are well cooked and soft.
