Make Vegetarian Soups and Stews Even Healthier

  • Replace butter (a saturated fat) with a small-amount of olive or sunflower oil (unsaturated)

  • Replace 1 one egg in a soup recipe with two egg whites or ¼ c. low-cholesterol egg replacement.
  • Replace sour cream with this recipe: mix together ½ C. cottage cheese with ½ tsp. lemon juice.
  • Garnish soup with fresh chopped herbs instead of cheese, or use a small amount of skim-milk cheese.
