Weight Watchers Soup Recipe Revisited

WW soupYes, I wrote about my friend Lori’s zero point Weight Watchers soup recipe a while ago. The recipe is here. I admit that I don’t eat a ton of soup (unlike my daughter Tory who lives on the stuff when she’s at college) because I like to chew and soup isn’t that chewy, at least to me. But with the 2013-2014 winter here in Northern New Jersey abominably snowy and ridiculously cold (and more weather headed my way) I have turned to the recipe more than a few times; I make it for myself almost once a week because I’ve found that it warms me up inside and out.

Recently, I made the soup using mostly fresh veggies from the crisper — zucchini, carrots, celery, onion. And I started by sautéing the veggies in some butter spray (0 WW points), which made them yummier tasting than usual. And then I added green and yellow string beans (a favorite veggie of mine) to the pot, which upped the flavor factor for me.

But the very best thing I did?

I topped my bowl of soup with a tablespoon of pesto. True, 1T of pesto adds 1WW point to the soup, but I think the flavor factor is upped by a factor of 10!

Have you ever topped soup with pesto? Why not try it! And then let me know what you think.
