A lovely hearty, thick soup for cold winter days. Absolutely no fat, so you can have a mug of this soup any time of the day and not put on an ounce of weight. I used this soup when I was de-toxing for a week and never felt hungry. I made double the amount and was enough for the weeks de-tox. I lost 2 kg in the first week!
