Ground Beef and Cilantro Soup
This soup is very filling and I normally make it with a stirfry or as a light lunch. This reheats really well and is about 100 calories a serving.
8 oz ground beef
8 cups chicken broth
3 egg whites, lightly beaten
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp white pepper
1 TBSP finely chopped fresh ginger
1 TBSP finely chopped scallion
4-5 TBSP finely chopped cilantro
1 tsp salt
1 tsp splenda
1 tsp Rice Wine
1 tsp light soy sauce
Combine all marinade ingredients in a bowl and marinate the beef for 20 minutes.
Bring stock to a boil. Add beef, stirring to break up any clumps, and let simmer for 10 minutes.
Slowly add the egg whites, stirring rapidly so that they form into fine shreds. Add salt and pepper and taste to check seasonging.
To serve, place gingerroot, scallion, and cilantro in the base of individual bowls and pour soup on top.
