Green Veggies Soup

This is another winning recipe from Ricardo.  Greens are good for our health?  Then this soup is perfect.  I don’t like broccoli but in this soup it’s yummy.  This is very simple.  For a complete meal Ricardo suggests to add chickpeas.  Great idea! I love to bring soups for my lunch at work.  But I need filling and low-cal soup.  Sure I don’t eat only that.  Today I had iceburg salad with raw chopped veggies (celery, carrots, green/red bell peppers), topped with italian dressing (5 cal/tablespoon).  I had a big bowl of this salad.

There is 2 tablespoon of pesto in this soup.  It makes it so tasty.
