Cabbage and Potato Soup
By: Bill Dietemeyer
7 4 Medium - Potatoes, peeled & cut into 1/2 inch cubes
.5 One Medium - Onion, Chopped
As Needed - Water
21 One LB. - Very Lean Ground Beaf ( We usually try to get at least 85% Lean)
4 One Medium Head - Green Cabbage, Shredded
3 3 Cups - 2% Milk ( We use fat free milk)
1.5 3 TBSP - Flour
To taste - Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1/4 Tsp - Salt (as diet permits)
Put potatoes & Onion into a large pot with just enough water to cover them. Boil until tender.
In the meantime, brown hamburger and drain off the grease.
Add cooked hamburger, shredded cabbage, black pepper and salt to pot
Disolve flour in a small amount of milk. Add remaining milk and flour/milk mixture to the pot
Cook and stir over low heat until heated through.
When I punched it in, I got 40 points for the whole pot, I listed the individual point counts above. Now, just divide 40 points by however many servings it makes.
Hope that helps.
i just realized that when you add up the numbers I listed, it equals 37 NOT 40, but that is what the recipe builder said , I don't know why the total doesn't add up??
