Skinny Soup

Serves 10

What You’ll Need:

6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

2 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

4 tomatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks

4 carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

3 zucchini, cut into 1-inch chunks

2 green bell peppers, coarsely chopped

2 onions, coarsely chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 teaspoons salt

3/4 teaspoon black pepper

What To Do:

1.    In a soup pot, combine all ingredients; mix well and bring to a boil over high heat.

Reduce heat to medium and cook 1 hour, or until vegetables are tender.

 Layered Chocolate Chip Bombe

Serves 14

What You’ll Need:

1-1/2 cups fat-free milk

3/4 cup strong black coffee

1 (18-ounce) package reduced-fat chocolate chip cookies

1 (16-ounce) container frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed

What To Do:

1.    In a medium bowl, combine milk and coffee. 

2.    Completely line a 2-quart mixing bowl with chocolate chip cookies that have been dipped in milk mixture until moist (see Tip). Cover cookies with a 1/2-inch layer of whipped topping. Repeat layers until all cookies are used, reserving 1/4 container of whipped topping. Cover bowl and freeze overnight. 

3.    Unmold by dipping the bowl in a warm water bath, making sure no water gets into the bowl. Turn onto a serving platter, remove bowl and plastic wrap, and cover with remaining whipped topping. Cut into pie-shaped servings. Serve immediately or cover loosely and keep frozen. 

Test Kitchen Tip: Soak the chocolate chip cookies until they are soft, but not falling apart. Too short a dunk and they’ll be hard, too long of a dunk and you’ll have a mess. Trust us on this…we screwed up the first time we made this, so you don’t have to!
