Weight Watchers Garden Vegetable Soup

One of my favorite soups is this one from Weight Watchers. I have never "done" Weight Watchers. I would like to try it someday soon if I can't lose the remaining twenty pounds on my ass by my self. Now, my sister lost a lot of weight on Weight Watchers. 

Anyway, this is such an easy go to soup recipe that I like to serve as a side. I have been thinking about adding some small noodles to it and making it more a meal. It is super low in calories as is and so very healthy.

Weight Watchers Garden Vegetable Soup
Makes 9 Cups

6 Cups Broth (use whatever kind you like)
2 Carrots, peeled and dice
4 tsp. Garlic or 4 Cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 a Head of Cabbage (the green stuff, don't skip this because it makes the soup. Also, it tastes much better cooked then raw.)
1/2 lb. Green Beans, cut small (frozen work well)
2 Tbsp. Tomato Paste
1 tsp. Dried Basil
1 tsp. Dried Oregano
1 tsp. Salt
1 Large Zucchini, diced
Cooking Spray

1. Spray a big pot with cooking spray over Meduim-High heat. 
2. Saute the carrots, onion, and garlic for about 5 minutes or until the onion is translucent. 
3. Add all the remaining ingredients, except the zucchini, and bring to a boil. 
4. Cover, reduce heat to Medium-Low and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the carrots are cooked through. 
5. Add the zucchini and let cook about 5 more minutes.
6. Enjoy

  1. Except skip the cooking spray, it's nasty stuff, and use a spray bottle with olive oil or canola oil instead, same result low fat, but real food and less expensive! Toni

  2. That's a good idea. I have wanted to do that for some time and keep forgetting to get a spray bottle.

  3. they sell glass ones for cheap at walmart just for that purpose. :) Toni

  4. I'm going to try that, too. The recipe sounds really good, but I've never thought about spraying canola oil.



I am happily (it's true) married to my high school sweetheart (known as Hubby).

We have five children:

I am currently working on the classes I need to apply to our competitive nursing program.

I understand I am crazy.
