Soups

Best Ever Vegetable Soup

205

This soup is best when simmered a couple of hours. It's, also, a great soup to empty out your refrigerator and freezer. I put, almost any vegetable in it except red beets. It's never the same.

Who doesn't love having a good Caesar salad! However, having Caesar salad in restaurants is never a healthy choice. As, it is always loaded with excess fats and calories. I have prepared an entirely healthy homemade Caesar salad in a tortilla bowl that rivals that of any restaurant.

Toss with the crisp lettuce, drizzle with the guilt-free flavorful dressing and finally top with croutons and cheese for the perfect main course!
