Low Carb Healthy Fiesta Soup

 
Fiesta Style, so delicious and festive you can almost call it Comforting food...
 
I was invited to a friends wedding today, and she asked me months ago to help get the bride ready on the day of the wedding... So I did!! Got ready myself, and headed on over to her place with my makeup box and curling iron, hair straightener bla bla bla!!! Well the bride turned out so beautiful, she had beautiful skin so the makeup looked so natural and professional, for the hair I did her a medium size puff, and had all the hair coming to one side curled... looking like a beauty queen, wish I could have shared a pic with you guys:( 
 
 

At the end of the day I was so tired, it was so cold, and I had been thinking about soup the whole time i was there, I thought to my self "Cant wait to run home and cook up a big pot of Steaming hot Low Carb Soup"... The recipe for the Soup is so simple and easy, The secret part is letting it simmer covered, on low heat when you throw in all of the ingredients... The reason why i call it low carb is because it hardly uses any oil or fat, and its so satisfying plus healthy with all of the veggies you use..


I like to use different kind of noodles, for this particular soup i used a cup of  macaroni, A cup of spaghetti ( broken into tiny pieces) and even a cup of white rice.. You don't even have to use a whole lot of cornstarch to thicken the soup because the noodles, and rice make it so nice and thick using its own starch... Sometimes I even whisk up a egg white, and whisk it in when its almost done, giving it a even extremely yummy taste.. Plus its safe and healthy, because you don't use the egg yolk..
 Here's the low carb recipe.. Get a big spoon, with some dinner rolls, or toasted bread and ENJOY...

Prep time 20 minutes

3/4 cup white rice
3/4 cup elbow macaroni
3/4 cup spaghetti ( cut up into little pieces)

  5. Add a little bit of water to the cornstarch and mix it in the soup using a hand whisk. Whisking well.
  6. Cook for another 15 minutes.. Your soup should be nice and thick with the cornstarch, plus with all the starch the noodles and rice will leave..

    1. Hi, You sure can, Its a Fiesta Soup so add any Ad-In Veggies you want!! I didn't have any corn at the time, but I usually love to add some... You can add more water to make a thinner consistency of the soup, if you feel its too thick .. Hope this helps:)
