This is also excellent when adding 1C frozen peas/carrots at the same time the green onion is added. This soup is absolutely delicious!

Is one serving of soup always 1 cup? It sounds really good!

I left out the soy sauce, added a bit of sea salt, added 2 extra cups of broth (10 cal per cup) and added 4 oz ground chicken and an extra onion - - YUMMM - my daughter who hates soups, LOVED this. By far, better than we have ever had from take-out Chinese - I dont know what 1 serving would be since I added to it.. but in my pot of soup.. If you divide it equally by 4, its 205 cal each (would have been a lot less if I hadn't added chicken)and one of these 4 servings is HUGE - If there were an option for 6 stars, Id do it.

Anitaannie..points are how weight watchers keeps track of your food intake. You are allowed a certain number of points per day and you can eat anything you wish as long as you stay within your point allotment. It goes to reason that you should eat foods that are kwo in points so you can eat more and have a greater variety of foods each day. Hope this helps.

A fat free soup that is perfect for anyone counting calories.
It may not be the lowest calorie recipe, but it's good and filling so portion size is minimal.
