I was just going to post a message asking for a substitute for cabbage (it's too much work to cook for me!) but the coleslaw is a great idea! You guys rock!

A friend was over today when I was making some zero point soup and wanted the recipe 'cause she said it smelled wonderful. Here's the original recipe my two variations (which are actually one point) on the zero point soup.

 

Janet,

 

Here's the original vegetable soup recipe:

 

GARDEN VEGETABLE SOUP

 

Serving Size: 1 cup (makes 4 servings)

 

2/3 cup sliced carrot

1/2 cup diced onion

2 cloves garlic

3 cups fat free broth (beef, chicken or vegetable)

1 1/2 cups green cabbage leaf -- diced

1/2 cup green beans

1 tablespoon tomato paste

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon Salt

1/2 cup zucchini -- diced

 

In a large saucepan, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, saute the carrot, onion, and garlic over low heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add broth, cabbage, beans, tomato paste, basil, oregano, and salt; bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer covered, about 15 minutes or until beans are tender. Stir zucchini and heat 3-4 minutes. Serve hot.

 

Here are a couple of my variations on the soup. The possibilities are actually endless and it’s a good way to use up those small bits of leftover veggies.

 

Variation #1

 

Omit cabbage and zucchini

Add 2 stalks chopped celery with carrots, onions, and garlic

Add one can diced tomatoes w/jalapenos

1/2 cup frozen corn

4 oz. grilled chicken breast, chopped

 

 

 

Variation #2

 

Omit cabbage and zucchini

Substitute a portion of the broth with V-8 juice

Add one can diced tomatoes w/jalapenos

1/2 cup frozen corn

4 oz. grilled chicken breast, chopped

 

 

Enjoy!

I have a question about this recipe, Will it turn out the same if I dont put cabbage or zukes? I dont like either of them but will it ruin the soup if I dont put it in? Also can I use french cut greenbeans or will they turn to mush?

 

Thanks guys.

You can use ANY zero-point vegetables you want, and you can leave out any vegetables you want to! :D

 

You can add any pointed vegetables, if you count them.

 

I think the french-cut string beans would be fine.

Just add them last. thumbup.gif

The last time I made this soup, I was a little burned out on traditional cabbage and substituted savoy (Chinese) cabbage. The flavor is not as strong IMHO, but it still adds volume to the soup.

Can you add extra veggies like broccoli or cauliflower to this? I make this, but I just put everything into a pot and simmer it. I use cabbage, zucchini, broccoli, carrots, celery, cauliflower, onion, tomato paste, vegetable broth, and spices. Would this change the point value very much?

Angel, the ingredients you list would still make a zero Point soup.

 

Enjoy!

 

If you start adding corn, or beans, or meats, or potatoes, or other starchy veggies, you can wind up with a soup that isn't zero Points, but unless your broth is cream-based with butter, it's probably still pretty low. For example Chinese "hot and sour" soup has lots of stuff in it for 2 Points a cup and regular chicken noodle soup is also 2 Points per cup.

Can you use a soup mix instead of broth?

If you can find a plain soup mix it would be fine. Be careful, boullion cubes are very high in salt.

Also, be careful when adding Knorr Buillion! I've switched to either fat-free broth or Wiltons. When I calculated the soup out it came out to a point with the Knorr buillion!

 

I also add Celery and any 0 point veggies I can find that aren't outrageously expensive at the store.

This is my comfort food. I eat it every day.

3 cans FF chicken broth

2 16oz bags frozen cauliflower

8oz frozen carrots

1 can tomatos

1 can green beans

1 can Northern beans rinsed and drained

1 packet Sweet N Low

1 palm full of dried minced onions

1 tablespoon of dried basil

1 tsp. season salt

 

Bring all ingredients to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 30 mins. Let cool slightly, and add one tablespoon olive oil. Put in a blender and mix till smooth. Makes 3 quarts. Totally core. Leave out the beans or count points for flex.

 

You wouldn't have to put it in a blender, I do because I'm not crazy about vegetables. This is like eating vegetables without my knowledge.
