Mulligatawny Soup

Please follow and like us:

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.

This soup is from the infamous “No soup for you!” Seinfeld episode. I can see why people would wait in line for it, it’s so delicious!

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.

There are a few things I did to lighten up this soup. The first was I reduced the amount of butter, I only used 1 tablespoon.

Instead of using heavy whipping cream I used skim milk. That saved 20 points!

Using chicken breast instead of thighs also helps to cut back points.

Another good thing about this recipe is it’s done in about 30 minutes. I love it for lunch or dinner!
