Weight Watchers Soup Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Spanish Potato Onion Soup
A simple soup of potatoes, onions and Spanish-influenced seasonings for the slow cooker, perfect for colder weather.
Adapted from Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home: Fast and Easy Recipes for Any Day , where it’s written as a stovetop recipe. I opted to toss everything in the crock-pot instead.
A few hours later we were rewarded with this hearty and delicious soup ready and waiting for us at the end of a long day.
Served with crusty bread and a green salad, it made for a satisfying meal.
The Skinny on Slow Cooker Spanish Potato Onion Soup
Including more soups in our diet has been one of my tricks for easy healthy weight loss. They’re an easy delicious way to increase your intake of vegetables, filling you up with fewer calories.
As Mireille Guiliano says in her wonderful book, French Women Don’t Get Fat: The Secret of Eating for Pleasure , “The evening soup eater tends to consume less fat and less food overall, feeling satiated through the night, after which she needs ‘a real meal’ on rising to get her through the morning.”
And with leftover soup in the fridge, you’ve got a low Points value solution ready and waiting whenever hunger strikes.
According to my calculations, each generous serving of this Slow Cooker Spanish Onion Potato Soup has 141 calories, *3 Weight Watchers Points Plus and *3 WW Freestyle SmartPoints.
