This recipe is so tasty you forget that it is low calorie. When feeding it to the family I serve cut up cooked chicken and cooked pasta on the side. Then they each just add what they want and it keeps everyone happy. This time I just made the soup for lunch and my 6 year old had 4 helpings and then wanted it the next day cause "it was ohhh so good"! I usually double or even triple the recipe. I hear it freezes well. Mine never lasts that long.
Low Cal Veggie Soup
adapted from Weight Watchers (0 points)
Makes 4 - 1 cup servings
2/3 cup sliced carrot
1/2 cup diced onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups fat-free broth (beef, chicken or vegetable -I like chicken!)
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 (or yellow squash)
Spray a large saucepan with cooking spray. Saute the carrot, onion, and garlic over low heat until softened,
I usually add half zucchini and half yellow squash, but this time of the year
could not find any yellow squash.
This time I added about 2/3 cup asparagus (with all the main ingredients) and I really liked it.
