Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Betty Tip:
Soy protein, in the context of a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet, can help reduce the risk of heart disease. Research suggests that when about 25 grams of soy protein is eaten daily from soy foods, blood cholesterol levels tend to drop. This yummy soup is a great start, containing about one-third of the 25 daily grams in one serving.
