Weight Watcher’s Vegetable Soup Two Ways

Both of these recipes are very good and even with the new point system in Weight Watcher’s the points value is still 0.   One recipe uses a slow cooker.   So, if I have a Banana Blueberry Muffin for breakfast I might have one of these soups for lunch.  It is all about moderation and balancing the calories.

WW Five-A-Day Vegetable Soup

  • 3 (15 oz.) cans reduced sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning
  • 1-1/2 cups cabbage, shredded
  • 1 lb. zucchini, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, shredded (I use carrots that come in a package already cut up)
  • 1 (15 oz.) can green beans, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp. fresh basil, minced (or 1 tbsp. dried)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients except the last three.  Cover and cook on low for about 5 hours.  Prior to serving season to taste with salt and pepper and basil.

Serves 10
