DISCLAIMER: Don’t let the first site of this picture push you away from this dish. It’s really good. I swear! =)

How many of you enjoy the creamy, savory taste of Cream of Mushroom soup? I have to admit, although it’s really bad for you it tastes really really good. There are “light” or fat free versions of this soup out there on the market, but if you’re gonna eat it you might as well go for the gold, right? Heck yah!

Now imagine if there was a Cream of Mushroom soup that you could eat that’s neither Light or Fat Free, would you still do it?

Now you can!

  3. Andrew says:

    What kind of red pepper? bell pepper? For your grapefruit juice, freshly squeezed? Also what’s a good substitute for the trader joe’s 21 seasoning salute?

  4. theo says:

    Hey Andrew,
    For the “red pepper” you should use a bell pepper, and as far as the grapefruit juice goes just squeeze the juice out of a grapefruit.
    The unique thing about the Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute is what its composed of:
    Onion, Black Pepper, Celery Seed, Cayenne Pepper, Parsley, Basil, Marjoram, Bay Leaf, Oregano, Thyme, Savory, Rosemary, Cumin, Mustard, Coriander, Garlic, Carrot, Orange Peel, Tomato Granules, Lemon Juice Powder, Oil of Lemon, and Citric Acid.
    You could use a mixture of black pepper, thyme, oregano, basil, garlic powder or fresh garlic, Lemon pepper, etc. Its pretty much up to your liking.
    Essentially you could use any of these in your soup, but for convenience that is why I use TJ 21 Seasoning Salute. When you are cooking Paleo, this becomes your BEST FRIEND…
    Hope it works out for you Andrew.
    Let me know how it goes.

    how many does it serve?

  6. theo says:

    Hey Andrew,
    For the amount that’s listed, it could easily serve at least 2 adult servings (depending how much you eat).
    Let me know how it goes.

    That would lead me back to your side.
