Zuppa di Fagioli a la HG


  • One 14.5-oz. can Amy's Organic Light in Sodium Chunky Tomato Bisque
  • 1/2 cup frozen ground-beef-style soy crumbles (like the kind by Boca or Morningstar Farms)
  • 1/3 cup canned cannellini beans (a.k.a. white kidney beans), drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
  • Optional garnish: chopped parsley


  1. Place all ingredients except Parm-style topping and optional garnish in a pot, and bring to medium-high heat on the stove. Stirring occasionally, cook until crumbles have thawed and soup is hot. Top each serving with 1/2 tsp Parm-style topping and, if you like, a little chopped parsley. Slurp!
  3. Each cup has 182 calories, 4g fat, 27g carbs, 5.75g fiber, 10g protein, and a PointsPlus™ value of 4.

HG's The Whole Enchilada Chicken Soup


  • 3 cups fat-free chicken broth
  • 1 1/4 cups finely chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet yellow onion
  • 3 cups green enchilada sauce
  • One 15-oz. can pure pumpkin
  • 10 oz. cooked and shredded (or chopped) skinless lean chicken breast
  • 1 cup frozen white (or yellow) corn
  • Optional: dash hot sauce, or more to taste
  • Optional toppings: shredded fat-free cheddar cheese, crushed baked tortilla chips


  1. In a large pot, bring broth to a low boil on the stove. Add celery and onion, and simmer for about 5 minutes, until slightly tender. Stir in enchilada sauce and pumpkin. Once soup returns to a low boil, add chicken and corn. Mix well. Cook for an additional 3 - 5 minutes, until hot. Add a dash or more hot sauce. (Or not. It's your soup.) Serve and, if you like, top with shredded cheese and/or crushed chips. Enjoy!!!
  3. Each cup has 105 calories, 1.75g fat, 12.5g carbs, 2g fiber, 11g protein, and a PointsPlus value of 3.
