Thanks to my buddy Joyce for supplying me this recipe...I think I may have a fighting chance to drop this last 10 pounds! For those of you who have done Weight Watchers...I'm sure you've seen this one before...but for those of you (like me) who haven't...it might just be our saving grace!
This wonderful tasting soup only has 42 calories per 1-cup servng and has NO fat and has 2 grams of fiber. It just doesn't get much healthier than this girls!
I made it this morning and it has been simmering in my kitchen all day...and now I am finally sitting down to have a bowl and YUMMO!
Weight Watchers Garden Vegetable Soup (o points!)
2/3 c. sliced carrot
1/2 c. diced onion
2 garlic cloves
3 c. fat-free broth (beef, chicken or vegetable)
1 1/2 c. diced green cabbage
1/2 c. green beans
1 T. tomato paste
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1/4. tsp. salt
1/2 c. diced zucchini
I doubled it since I wanted to be able to eat this for lunch every day this week!
Saute the carrot, onion and garlic over lower heat for about 5 minutes. (I used a teensy drip of EVOO for this). Add broth, cabbage, beans, tomato paste, basil, oregano and salt. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer, covered for about 15 minutes or until beans are tender. Stir in zucchini and heat 3-4 minutes. Serve hot.
