Servings Per Recipe: 6
"Very tasty and easy. I used low-sodium chicken broth instead of beef, and also for the water. Made for a great light supper, with bread and a salad."
"This was a flavorful soup. I made it with beef broth and less celery because we don't like it that much. I didn't have red wine so I added a little brandy, It added a nice touch. I garnished this one with parsley, but honestly it didn't go very well with the beef. It would probably taste better with chicken broth. Next time I'll try using chicken broth and I'll add some herbs, I think thyme would be great. Made for Swizzle Chicks and ZWT6, Germany/Benelux."
"Healthy, easy, great-tasting. Just the way I like it. Thanks."
"Wonderful soup! Vey light and tastey. I made as written. Next time I think it may add some thyme or more garlic."
"Rich earthy flavor. Add a piece of sourdough French bread, glass a wine and you have a meal to make any queen or king happy. Love that it is low fat and low cal with out being low in the taste department. Made as written and would not change a thing. Thanks so much for the post."
"This was nice, easy to prepare veggie soup. I liked that it was prepared in the crockpot so that I could just dump in all of the ingredients and go. Like other reviewers, I used all beef broth and increased the number of garlic cloves to 3. For the mushrooms, I used baby bellas. As I was making this for DH's lunch for the subsequent day, I refrigerated after 5.5 hours, and stirred in the red wine in the morning before he took it to work. I also seasoned it with some seasoned salt and some grated parmesan cheese to give it a little extra flavor. Thanks for this low-cal recipe, Vicki!"
"This is really a delicious vegetable soup and it is easy to prepare. I also used broth in place of the water listed and increased the amount of garlic to 2 - 3 cloves. Made for Photo Tag."
"I made this for my husband and he loved it. Like Lainey I added a little more garlic and substituted 2 cups beef broth for the water. I also added about 8-10 oz of chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces. I would have put in beef but I didn't have any at the time. Thanks for posting this!"
"This made an awesome lunch for us! I loved that it is made in the crock pot. I added a little more garlic and substituted 2 cups beef broth for the water. Delish! Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers."
"We thought is was nice for a meal made up of a big bowl of soup and some crusty bread. Which is good since that is how we had it tonight :) It was very easy to put together and the house smelled increasingly wonderful as it cooked throughout the day. My partner mentioned that he thought it needed a few more spices which is really the only reason why it isn't 5 stars. I also threw in a can of white beans for the last hour because this was so wonderfully low cal and I knew it would be our whole meal for the night. Made for ZWT4."
"This is a keeper for me. I'm always looking for FF or LF soups for myself as I try to stick closely to a WW diet. I"m glad to see also that it's only about 1pt. I used chicken broth instead of beef. Oh and I didn't have the redwine. I'm wondering if you meant redwine vinegar? Oh well, either way. Thanks for this recipe Vicki in CT."
"I added BonaPetite Seasoning and a little celery salt to the recipe.Also used white pepper. This is delicious. Will make time and again. Thanks for posting."
"Wonderfully delicious low cal soup that doesn't taste DIET. I did add more water because I think my crockpot cooks hot (about 2 cups). For WW I figure this is only 1 point! Thanks for sharing this keeper soup which we will have often!"
