A Yummy Recipe

Wow, February already, Valentine's Day weekend. I have the boys boxes all ready for their class party,and have got another batch of cookies out of the oven. And I have a new recipe. I found this on the Weight Watchers Message Board, and it just is really tasty.

Creamy Reuben Soup

1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup butter,cubed
2 tbsp all purpose flour
1 cup beef broth
2 cups half and half
1/4 pound sliced deli corned beef
3/4 cup sauerkraut, drained, and rinsed well
1 cup (4 oz) swiss cheese shredded , or chopped in small pieces.
Salt and pepper to taste.


In large saucepan, saute the onion, celery,pepper in melted butter until tender.
Stir in the flour until blended,gradually add the broth. Bring to a boil, cook two
minutes until thickened. Reduce heat to low, stir in half and half, corned beef,
and sauerkraut. Do not boil. Stir in cheese until melted.

1 cup 340 calories, 26 grams fat,10 carbs.

I used low sodium broth, and fat free half and half,and margarine, so I lowered the fat and calories. The only major change I would make is use a little less cream, make the soup
a little thicker, but this is so quick, easy, and I served with flatbread crackers.

I know there are some sauerkraut lovers out there, try this, you will love it.
