This soup has fewer than 100 calories per serving even with the butter and the full fat yogurt! A bowl of soup preceding the rest of dinner fills the tummy and cuts the appetite.

Another advantage? This soups adds a green-and-leafy veggie serving to your daily count and is high in vitamin C.

How to Make Brussels Sprouts Soup

Step-by-Step
