Mulligatawny Soup – 3 SmartPoints

It’s almost Fall, that means it’s the perfect season for soup! I thought I would get a head start today since it was only 70 degrees here in Michigan.

I love soup. Even if it is 90 degrees out I’ll make it. Not only is it tasty but it always fills me up! Mulligatawny is one of my favorites. I never thought I would like curry until I had this soup.

The recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups of chopped chicken breast. I like to make mine fresh (with a little bit of garlic powder, salt and pepper for some extra taste), but you can always use leftovers or a rotisserie chicken.

One of the reasons this soup is only 3 SmartPoints per serving is instead of using cream I use skim milk. I also minimize the butter to only one tablespoon.
