Weight Loss Recipe: Vege Soup

Today I'm going to share 1 of the main food that I eat when I want to lose weight and for me it really work very well. Any of you wanna lose a few pound should try this.

The recipe can cook for about 1-2 week volume, so after cooking you can keep it in the refrigerator and reheat a portion everytime you want to eat. For me, I replace about 90% of my meals with the soup. It's very useful, you can replace your breakfast & dinner with this and consume some carb on lunch.

Note: You will need a very big soup pot for it

1. 1 cube of Vegetable Stock Cube
2. 1 small size Cabbage
3. 1 Yellow Onion (you can use red onion too)
4. 1 bunch of Celery
5. 1 block of Silken Tofu
6. 4 Potatoes
(Potato is not very recommend as it's higher carb vegetable but I can't help adding it because potatoes are my favortie! You can replace with carrot)
7. 3 Tomatoes

Cabbage - coarsely chop up
Onion - thinly slice
Celery - de-vein and cut to about 1 inch tube
Tofu - cut into cubes
Potato - peel and cut into cubes
Tomato - cut into wedges (you can deseed it too)

Firstly fill your pot with water to about 3/4 full and let it boil over medium fire. It's important to leave enough allowance for your ingredients you'll be surprise by how much the water level raises.

After the water starts to bubble, add in the vegetable stock and let it sit for awhile before stirring it.

After the stock cube dissolve, add in the potatoes and onion and let it simmer for a few minutes until the onion turn slightly transparent. In the mean time, you can cut the cabbage.

After the onion turn slightly transparent, add in the cabbage and turn the fire small to let it simmer. In the meantime, prepare the celery.

BTW if you don't know what is de-veining you just snap one end of the celery and pull across. This way the outer harder crust will be peeled off. If you prefer your celery to be more crunchy you can skip the de-veining.

After the cabbage soften slightly, add in the celery and let it cook while you prepare the tofu and tomatoes.

After the celery and cabbage lost abit of colour, add in the tofu and let it cook for awhile. At this time you can start cleaning up the mess you made. HAHA!

Note: after adding the tofu, avoid too much stirring as it will break up the tofu.

After 3mins, you can add in the tomato and turn up the fire to medium. It's done when your soup started boiling.

Note: Make sure you do not cook the soup too long after adding tomato if not the tomatoes will break up.

Ta-dah, all done! Beautiful, isn't it?

This is the normal portion I will eat every meal. I usually replace breakfast & dinner (sometime lunch too) and eat something else for lunch.

Hope this recipe helps and good luck to fellow folks trying to lose weight like me =.="

I have to agree with you this is a great way of losing weight, in fact we at home are slowly moving into having vegetarian food more often.
