Weight Watcher’s Cabbage Soup – Sweet and Sour

Recipe by Dories Lori
READY IN: 3hrs 20mins




  • Cut up all the veggies, put everything in a very large pot, cover with water, and cook at least 3 hours, until everything is very soft.
  • Taste for seasoning – judge sour and sweet separately to see weather to add more citric acid or sweetener. I usually do add plenty more of each, until it is delicious.
  • Notes:
  • Don’t even bother cutting the core out of the cabbage – it cooks down with everything else and will be delicious. Really.
  • Measurements can be approximate. Feel free to adjust for what you like or have on hand. I know I always have a glass of the juice before pouring it into the pot ;-) Speaking of the juice, I don't remember it being part of the original recipe, but I always add it for tomatoey taste and body.
  • Sometimes, my Nana added green peppers. Her recipe also mentioned to serve with “rice and veal balls”, although I don’t actually remember her doing this. What could be bad?.
  • When I am not on a diet, I add brown sugar instead of the sweet-and-low.
  • Oops - I Totally had to Estimate how many servings. But this does mostly fill my 10 quart pot, and then cook off a little, so I will est. 18 servings - your mileage will vary;-).
