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.

All things are possible to him who believes...

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.
