Healthy Recipe: Garden Vegetable Soup

This is the famous 0 point soup recipe from Weight Watchers! It's included in the Eat Wisely book that's in my giveaway. I adjust some of the veggies to things I like better. You can experiment with it!

Garden Vegetable Soup
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 tablespoon tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup diced zucchini

Spray a large saucepan with nonstick cooking spray, heat. Saute the carrot, onion, and garlic over low heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add broth, cabbage, beans, tomato paste, basil, oregano, and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, about 15 minutes or until beans are tender. Stir in the zucchini and heat for 3-4 minutes. Serve hot. Makes 4 1-cup servings.

Give it a try if you haven't already - it makes a nice addition to lunch or dinner and another way to get your veggies.

  2. I have made this soup many times last winter. I need to start making it again. You have a lot of yummy sounding recipes on your blog. I need to try some out.

  3. I have made this before and enjoyed it! First of all I like the whole 0 points thing. I mean who wouldn't. Besides that though I found it to taste good and be filling. Definitely something good when you are running low on those points at the end of the week.

  4. I love veggie soup, so I have to try this :) Thanks for sharing (It sounds great!)
