I put practically every veggie I had in the fridge in this soup. Mushrooms, califlower, leeks - in addition to the veggies listed. YUMMY! So satisfying, and I cannot believe it is ZERO points. I garnished my bowl with a Tbsp of freshly grated parmesan (1 point) and it was absolutely perfect. I'll be making this again!
Smells delicious and fill sthe whole house with a savoury home-cooking scent I just can't resist. Very yummy!
I made this soup a week ago, and froze it in 1 cup servings. It freezes well, and the one cup size is convinient for packing in lunches to take to work. Even my DH who is not on WW, enjoyed it. He said it smelled so good, that he couldn't not try it! Thanks for posting.
