Saturday Stirrings ~ Vegetable Soup

Posted by Carol on March 6, 2009

Early in February, I started back at Weight Watchers and in spite of two birthdays and Valentine’s Day, I have lost just over five pounds.  This recipe has been a tremendous help – it is filling, healthy and is a great way to get in the recommended 5 servings of fruits and veggies per day.  This is the famous Zero Points Soup Recipe from Weight Watchers.  Try it, I think you’ll like it.

Garden Vegetable Soup

  • 2/3 cup sliced carrot
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 3 cups fat-free broth (beef, chicken, or vegetable)
  • 1 1/2 cup diced green cabbage (I’ve been using Napa 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

Spray a large saucepan with non-stick cooking spray. Over low heat, saute the carrot, onion, and garlic 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 servings at 0 points each. That is ZERO, none, nada, not one single point per delicious serving. Can you tell I love this soup?

    WooHoo to your 5 pounds off! I’m inspired. That’s awesome. I laughed when I came over to link up and saw soup and weight watchers. We’re on the same page. : ) Did I tell you I love my Cheerios gift pack I won over here? I was impressed with the Caphalon loaf pan. I needed it.

  2. I love soup!
    My recipe is for my favorite crockpot roast. I guess I “invented” it but it’s now our favorite.
    I use chipotle peppers for a smokiness.
