You can eat as much of this 0-point Weight Watchers cabbage soup as you like. It's so good for you.
- 3 cups nonfat beef broth (beef is the best) or 3 cups nonfat vegetable broth (beef is the best) or 3 cups nonfat chicken broth (beef is the best)

- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 2 cups chopped cabbage

- Spray pot with non stick cooking spray saute onions carrots and garlic for 5 minutes.
- Add broth, Tomato paste, cabbage, green beans, basil, oregano and Salt & Pepper to taste.
- Simmer for a about 5-10 minutes until all vegetables are tender then add the zucchini and simmer for another 5 or so minutes.
- I have tried different variations. Leaving out green beans. Adding chopped green onions in addition to the yellow onion.
- All very good. You can customize it a bit.
Very good recipe. I added some red pepper flakes and celery also. Another thing I changed was to saute the carrots and onions in a tablespoon of olive oil. Certain vitamins are fat soluble which means they need some fat for the body to absorb the nutrients. I never use fat free dressings on salad either but use low fat or just a little olive oil and some balsamic vinegar. When dieting, it is important to get all of the nutrients from foods. Thanks for the recipe.
What a GREAT soup!! I decided to "go big or go home", and make a HUUUGE pot so i could eat it at home when i got hungry, and more importantly, to be able to take some to work all week...so i used 2 32oz. cartons of beef broth. I basically doubled everything...used 1/2 a head of cabbage, 4 carrots, 1 zucchini, green onions, 1/2 a large onion, 1 can green beans, 2 stalks of celery, garlic, and fresh parsley...i basically just started throwing whatever i could find into the pot...BEYOND YUMMY! i doubled up on the oregano and basil, also added a little thyme. That is truly the beauty of this recipe...you can play with it and make it your own. It really is VERY filling too...after i let it all simmer for about an hour, i had about a cup and a half...FULL! this is going to be the NEW staple of my diet!! Swimsuit here i come!!! thank you for a GREAT recipe dageret!! :-)
Awesome recipe!!! Been making this for years. Flavorful and filling. I use a can of Rotel instead of the tomato paste. Occassionally will also add a can of rinsed kidney beans.
