This soup is a complete winner in my books because it’s a whooping 0 WEIGHT WATCHERS points. The best part is you can customize the soup to your liking, just make sure you count the points if you are adding something other than veggies. I usually add 3-4 ounces of chicken to the soup for a total of 3-4 Weight Watchers points. You can also pair it with a nice sandwich. As I write this post I am eating it with a nice tuna sandwich, a perfect pairing for such a yummy healthy soup.
It takes me 20 minutes from start to finish to make this soup. Completely worth the effort.
3.5 cups of non fat, low (to no sodium) beef broth (one box of broth will work perfectly and you can use other types of broth if you wish)
.5 – 1 tsp of oil
2 garlic cloves minced
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
2.5 – 3 cups chopped cabbage
Half an onion
3/4 cup chopped carrot
3/4 cup green beans
3/4 cup chopped zucchini
Spices – I use basil, thyme, oregano and some MRS. DASH EXTRA SPICY SEASONING (Mrs. Dash spices are amazing because they are salt free)
Add oil to a pot and saute the onions and garlic for 3- 5 minutes.
Add broth, tomato paste, cabbage, green beans, carrots and spices to taste.
Simmer for a about 5-10 minutes until all vegetables are tender.
Add the zucchini and simmer for another 5 or so minutes.
