Diabetes Recipes: Zucchini Escarole Soup

 This is a handy soup to have around all the time. It’s low in everything you don’t want. I eat this whenever I’m feeling really hungry. It fills me up so I don’t overeat foods that are more calorie or carbohydrate or protein intensive.

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups coarsely shredded zucchini
  • ¼ cup snipped fresh dill
  • ½ teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 2 cups lightly packed, coarsely chopped escarole
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced scallion (dark green part)
1 In a 2-quart nonstick saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Add the broth and water; bring to a boil.
2 Add the zucchini, dill, and poultry seasoning; return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes.
3 Add the escarole, lemon juice, sugar, pepper, and salt; simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes longer.
Sprinkle with the scallion.
