Easy Peasey Cheesy Veggie Soup

Eat your veggies! I'm sure all parents have told this to their children more than once, and chances are the children did not listen. In fact, I'm sure many adults could benefit from a few more vegetables too. Why don't people eat enough vegetables? Well there is a simple answer, they don't taste good! But I have a simple solution for that! This recipe is full of vegetables, but they are so good that you don't even feel like you're eating 'healthy'

This soup is a hot meal that can be thrown together in a matter of minutes and keep even the strictest diet on tract!

It is full of vitamins (especially vitamin C), protein, low in fat and carbs!

Makes 6 Servings~

-3 cups vegetables (What I find the easiest is to use the frozen, pre-cut 'California Blend' - it has broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots)
-2 cans Cream of Cheddar Soup (Look for the 'heart healthy' kind, it has lower fat & sodium)
-1 1/2 cups lowfat milk
-3 ounces ham (chopped)


1. Thaw (or steam, if fresh) your vegetables
2. Mix soup and milk in large microwavable bowl
3. Microwave on high for 3-5 minutes
4. Add vegetables and ham
5. Microwave an additional 2-3 minutes
6. Serve and ENJOY! :)

Above: The soup served in a whole wheat bread bowl, the perfect way to round out this healthy meal! Another great addition would be to eat these with my Homemade Pita Chips! Delicious!
