Default Seafood Soup- Recipe Help Please!

I just received a copy of the LA Lite cookbook. I saw a recipe for Seafood Soup that sounded really yummy. It's on the bottom of page 20, and here it is for those without the book:

4 servings
Serving size: 1 recipe
Counts as: 1 protein, 1 dairy, 1 LA Lite


5 or 7 oz of shrimp, size according to plan
6 slices low sodium turkey bacon
1 cup onions, chopped
1 pound potato, thin skinned, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
3 tbsp flour
2 1/2 cups skim milk
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley sprigs
nonfat cooking spray


In a small saucepan coated with nonfat cooking spray, add shrimp, onion, pepper, and garlic. Saute until seafood is cooked.

Add soup mix, milk, and half and half; stir until smooth.

Heat well.

Season with hot pepper sauce. (Optional)


First, how can the recipe make 4 servings, but the serving size be 1 recipe?

How can 2 1/2 cups be 1 dairy? And where's the LA Lite? There's no mention of it in the ingredients, but "soup mix" is in the directions.

How come 2/3 of the ingredients aren't even in the directions, and there's ingredients in the directions that aren't listed?

Is anyone else's cookbook like this, or is mine really screwed up? Does anyone have the real recipe, or a similar one?

MAC-I have a cookbook at home, but I am at work right now. I have heard other people say some of the older cookbooks had a lot of errors. I found this one on the website. It is similar. Hope it helps,
