This was posted by a fellow SBDer, Mamacita, in the 3 Fat Chicks on a Diet boards. It's a wonderfully delicious, simple, vegetable soup. It originally called for zucchini, but I leave it out as I dislike summer squash. Feel free to add some in if you like, though. I sometimes add in a can of navy beans, rinsed and drained, with the tomatoes. For South Beach Diet, make sure your tomatoes have no added sugar. It makes quite a bit, but it reheats fairly well--or you can cool and freeze it. Don't be afraid of the garlic--it mellows out a lot during cooking.

  2. Add tomatoes, zucchini, and squash (and navy beans, if using) and cook an additional 45 minutes.
  3. Serve hot, sprinkled with Parmesan cheese or with a spoonful of pesto stirred in, as desired.
