Beef Minestrone Rice Cooker Soup 

Whoa is me, I have to eat low fat! So I have been counting my cholesterol, and fat grams in all my foods for the past 2 weeks. I found myself getting hungry in between meals. My niece has been helping me stay on track and is dieting herself with WW. (weight watchers). She loves to make weight watchers soup and eat that. I start drooling thinking about the soup so I had to get my rice cooker out and start making it. I weigh in tomorrow morning. My niece weighed in and is down 5 pounds, Rats!!! I know I have a hard time staying honest if I get hungry…so I decided to make some low calorie and low fat soup.

I want to thank Day by Day Nutrition for the Photo. Please go take a look at their soup which is much more involved but a beautiful soup for those that love soup making! http://www.daybydaynutrition.com/category/nutrition/page/3/

Beef Minestrone Soup

2 12 oz. cans Beef Chunks
2 cans Mixed Vegetables
1 can Green Beans
1 15oz can Diced Tomatoes
1 onion, chopped
32 oz Pkg. low sodium beef Broth
2 Tablespoons Dry Granulated Beef Bouillon

Place all ingredients in your rice cooker and set to white rice. It cooks pretty fast so if you like a more deep flavor be sure to let the rice cooker cool down and then set for a second time.

Happy News I am down 10 pounds and the soup was very good. My husband says it needs more starch like rice or potatoes. I told him we need to keep it thin so we can lose some weight. He sighed but agree we need to get our weight under control.
