Spicy Cod Soup

Makes 3 servings

Per serving

1/3 of a Leanest protein serving

1 fat

2 1/3 condiments

1 1/3 vegetables


1 tablespoon olive oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

½ cup jalapenos, sliced (seeds removed for a less spicy soup)

¼ teaspoon cumin

1 (15.5-ounce) can low-sodium diced tomatoes in their juices

1 ½ cups low-sodium fat free chicken broth

10 ounces cod fillets

¼ teaspoon Sea salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper





Place a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the oil followed by the garlic, jalapenos, and cumin then cook just until the garlic browns slightly. Increase the heat to high, add the tomatoes, broth, salt, and pepper then bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes to allow the flavors to marry.


Add the cod and cook just until the fish begins to flake, about 5 minutes. Gently stir to break the cod into large chunks then serve.
