I adapted the recipe for this Saint Nicholas Soup from Twelve Months of Monastery Soups , a delightful collection of simple soups (mostly vegetarian) organized by month.
Saint Nicholas Soup seemed the natural choice for the day after Christmas. I have this vision of Mrs. Claus serving it to Santa as he recovers from his long sleigh ride and Christmas cookie binge
The original recipe called for no seasoning beyond salt, so I took the liberty of adding a couple of bay leaves and bit of dried thyme. And because I didn’t saute the vegetables in butter before tossing them into the crock pot, I added a little cream at the end.
I thought this soup was a little bland, but Rod really loved it. It’s amazing how different everyone’s sense of taste is. The croutons add a nice contrast.
Warm and satisfying, without being heavy, each generous 1-1/2 cup serving has just 116 calories and 3 Weight Watchers Points Plus.
