No fads here...this stuff really works! The New Year is bound to feel all warm and toasty after indulging in a healthy helping of this tomato-based Fat Flushing Soup! Watch the video above to see how it all comes together.
In sauce pot over medium-high heat, cook oil 30 sec. or until heated. Add beef, turkey or chicken. Cook 5 min. or until cooked through, stirring occasionally.
Remove from skillet; drain, if desired. In same saucepot, cook onions, peppers, zucchini, mushrooms and garlic 5 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in next 6 ingredients and cooked meat. Add up to 1 cup water to thin soup, if desired. Cover; bring soup just to a simmer (do not let boil).
Reduce heat to medium-low. Let simmer 20 min., stirring occasionally. Stir in cilantro and parsley. Cover; let simmer 5 min. more. Garnish with shaved Parmesan cheese, if desired. Soup can be stored up to 5 days in the refrigerator or frozen.
*For a vegetarian option, omit meat and add another can of beans. Our favorite brand of beans is Goya Foods.
