Zero/0 pt soup.

Zero/0 pt soup. Yum yum veg soup. Proof positive that even when you have no points left, you can still eat something yummy! If you have emotional problems with cabbage, use spinach instead! This is W.W.'s standby.

Garden Vegetable Soup (makes 4 servings)
2/3 cup sliced carrot
1/2 cup diced onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups fat free broth (beef, chicken, or vegetable)
1 1/2 cups diced green cabbage
1/2 cup green beans
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup diced zucchini


In large saucepan, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, saute the
carrot, onion and garlic over low heat until softened, about 5 min.
Add broth, cabbage, beans, tomato paste, basil, oregano and salt; bring
to a boil. Lower heat and simmer covered about 15 minutes or until beans
are tender.
Stir in zucchini and heat 3-4 minutes. Serve hot.

Tips:

  • A super-fast way to make it is to use frozen carrots and a small bag of coleslaw salad mix.
  • You could also also add a large can of diced tomatoes and use a small tin of tomato sauce instead of paste.

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
