Weight Watchers' Favorite Vegetable Soup -- 0 Points

Recipe By :JaneStarr's WW Recipe Adaptation
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Janestarr Reg 6
Success

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup diced onion
8 teaspoons instant chicken broth granules or
8 packets instant chicken broth & seasoning mix
8 cloves minced garlic -- (equal to 4 tsp.)
9 cups assorted sliced veggies -- *see Note
1 tomato -- seeded & chopped
4 teaspoons fresh parsley -- chopped (or 1 tsp dried)
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves -- ( I prefer 1Tb fresh)
1/2 teaspoon pepper -- (I use a bit less of restaurant grind)


INSTRUCTIONS:
1). Spray large (5+ Quart), non-stick saucepan lightly with Pam. Saute onions over medium heat until almost translucent. Add garlic and dry chicken mix. Continue cooking until onion is translucent. ( I like my onions lightly browned).
2). Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and cook over low heat for about 10 minutes.
3). Add 8 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer about 20 minutes (until vegetables are soft).
4). Use a slotted spoon to remove about 2 cups of vegetables from pan; set aside.
5). Allow soup to cool to room temperature. Puree remaining soup in a blender in small batches. (I plan to use my new hand blender right in the pot)
6). Return pureed mixture and reserved vegetables to saucepan and heat.
Enjoy as an unlimited vegetable on the Weight Watchers plan!

This soup is especially good with 7 - 8 fat-free cracked pepper crackers (which count as one bread serving/point).

I like to microwave 1 1/2 cups of this soup for about 2 minutes (150 °F) and eat with the crackers about 30 minutes before lunch.

Per MasterCook: 69 cals, 1g fat (14% CFF), 4g fiber

This is a "free food" per WW leaders and materials. Enjoy!

New Year's Vegetable Soup (0 points)

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 12 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Soups- Hot

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 large Vidalia onion -- coarsely chopped
4 cloves garlic -- minced
-- (or more to taste)
2 cups chopped carrots
2 cups chopped celery
3 red bell peppers -- coarsely chopped
3 green bell peppers -- coarsely chopped
2 cups green beans -- sliced
1 cabbage head -- coarsely chopped (I used green.)
5 large ripe tomatoes -- coarsely chopped
28 ounces chicken broth, LS FF -- (I use organic- can also use vegetable broth.)
1 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 cup chopped basil
Salt and pepper -- to taste
Tabasco sauce -- to taste
1 pound fresh spinach -- (I used washed bagged spinach which I coarsely chopped.)

Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until softened and fragrant.

Stir in carrots and celery and continue to saute until softened.

Add peppers and cook until mixture is lightly browned.

Stir in green beans and cabbage and cook for about 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes and chicken (or vegetable) broth and bring soup to a boil. Turn down heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Add parsley, basil, salt and pepper to taste and Tabasco for a little kick if you'd like.

Stir in spinach and continue simmering for 1-2 minutes- do not overcook.

Remove approximately 1/3 of the soup and lightly puree (I like some chunks remaining.) Add back to the soup and stir. (Can totally puree for a smoother consistency)

NOTES : The serving size really depends on how big a bowl you want. I would say it makes 8-12 servings, but since it's zero points I'm not going to get crazy over it. To make this soup into a meal add any kind of beans, chicken or turkey. Another idea is to make it as a zero point soup and add the additional stuff when you reheat it depending on what you have leftover.

Here's a Beef-flavored variation to the WW Veggie Soup that I "invented" last weekend. It's my new favorite! I've also include in
the "notes section" my "lazy version" for those days where you can't face all that slicing and dicing http://www.3fatchicks.com/ubb/smile.gif (It's also good for
"cooking rejects").

Just be aware that these "free foods" are only free in reasonable quantities. I usually eat about 1 1/2 cups of this for 0 points.
This is also true for WW original "Favorite Vegetable Soup" recipe.

I have also made WW veggie soup in my crockpot. I just brown the onions first and then throw everything into the crockpot on low
for however many hours I'll be gone(usually all day). You can't really mess this up -- just make sure that the veggies are as soft
as you like them. I usually sauté large quantities of onions and mushrooms and keep (freezer-weight) ziplocks of them in the freezer
for making soups and adding bulk to my suppers.

There's something funny about this recipe. Cabbage takes far longer to cook than green beans, whether the cabbabe is diced or not. Fifteen minutes will not cook the cabbage but will turn the green beans to mush. I always micronuke my cabbage before I put it into soup because it takes about half an hour to cook into some softness.

When I make this soup, I flavor it with good curry powder. I know someone who flavors it with Chinese mustard (put in at the end because mustard cooks out).

I make a big kettle of it and put in a can of good whole tomatoes, chopped up, because I like tomatoes and they are said to be cancer preventing. I often use frozen packages of Birdeye broccoli and cauliflower instead of using fresh vegetables.

Since I live on this stuff, I always defat the broth first by putting it in the refrigerator so that the fat congeals and can be discarded.

I've never tried this diet I just come across it the other day while surfing the net.

Also go here to get info that you might need to know.http://www.mayohealth.org/mayo/9704/htm/wabout1.htm

What type of weight loss program are you on now??? I think ww is the best plan available.
I hope this helps

Laine, thanks for the website. That is exactly what I am looking for. As I said in the post above, I don't want to follow the diet I just want to make the soup to use with my regular diet plan. I "basically" try to follow the Larry North Slimdown for Life diet where you eat 5 to 6 smaller well balanced meals. I think the soup would work really well with this plan.

Don't know if this is the one you were needing. This is one my MIL gave me a while ago, called Zesty WW Soup. Used to count as a vegetable exchange=1/2 c. I was just looking at it, thinking about fixing it on this cold winter night.

Zesty WW Soup

1 c. green beans
1 c. tomatoes
1 c. mushrooms
2 c. chopped cabbage
2 sticks chopped celery
2 carrots, diced
1/2 c. water
1 pkg Hidden Valley Dressing Mix

Dump vegetables into pot and add water. Stir in dressing mix. Cook until vegetables are tender.


Does that sound like enough water? I copied this from a recipe card where she had written it down. Guess it would be if you are talking about canned veggies for the first 3 ingredients.

Wow! I just went to the store just to make this soup and it is soooo good! I added 1 cup of cooked boneless chicken breast and a can of chopped tomatoes in step 2 and 1 cup of instant brown rice with the zucchini in step 3. I have a WW recipe calculator on my computer and it came out to 2.5 points for 6 servings. I also measured it out after cooking and had about 8 cups soup so it's a good size serving and very filling. A meal in itself. (2 points if you figured for 8 - 1 cup servings)

Thanks for the recipes and tips

ps. I microwaved the cabbage for 5 mins, as MOG suggested, before chopping and cooking and all the veggies are perfectly cooked.
