This recipe is from a California Pizza Kitchen cookbook and is delicious. It has NO FAT and is vegetarian...perhaps even vegan. Try it...you'll like it. The recipe calls for a large pinch of cumin, but Recipezaar wouldn't accept that description so I guessed it to be about 1/8 teaspoon.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot or saucepan, combine first 10 ingredients. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to a bare simmer, cover, and cook for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in the carrots, onion, and celery. Cover and simmer until the vegetables are tender, 20-30 minutes more. Discard bay leaves. Ladle into warmed soup bowls and garnish with the scallion greens.
