Vegetable soup is delicious, healthy and filling!  It’s easy to make and perfect for lunch or afternoon snack.

It’s bright, colorful and loaded with all kinds of vegetables (and you can easily sub in whatever veggies you like or have on hand).

Of course this soup isn’t the magic weight loss secret but if you’re trying to cut calories this is perfect to have in your fridge ready to enjoy when you need a snack or a quick meal!

Vegetable soup is not only loaded with flavor, it fills your belly and is naturally low in calories and fat.

When we are trying to cut back (usually in January after the holidays) we enjoy a small bowl of this vegetable soup before each meal.  (And if you follow Weight Watchers, this is a 0 point soup…  a freebie and it’s 21 day fix approved) or I use it as a snack to tide me over until dinner.

I love cabbage in this soup, it adds bulk and fills your belly.

If you’re not a fan of cabbage, you can most certainly substitute kale or spinach.

Keep in mind that kale will add more bulk and spinach will shrink down quite a bit.

If you want to make this into a main course, you can add i leftover chicken or turkey or even ground turkey along with cooked brown rice, quinoa or even whole wheat noodles.

Add in any veggie you like.  I sometimes make this to use up vegetables in the fridge and if you happen to have roasted veggies, they add an amazing flavor too.

It’s very versatile and you can swap or add any veggie to make this to your liking or swap beef broth for chicken.

This vegetable soup recipe is great because it can be made on the weekend to enjoy throughout the week and it freezes well. I spoon it into single servings and portion it into freezer bags.

They’re easy to take out for a quick meal or snack and perfect to heat up for a quick meal on the go.

If you’re looking for something quick and healthy you’ll love this easy veggie soup recipe!

  1. Hi Holly,
    just wondering how big the serving sizes are to get 14 servings from the batch.
    Thanks!

  2. It was absolutely delicious!!! I feel very privileged that we were there to taste test it! It’s definitely on my list of staples now.

  3. I am on the keto diet and this soup is just perfect! I don’t ad carrots instead adding a little more broccoli.
    Its delicious ,filling and I stay within my daily carb intake. Thanks for a great receipt!

  4. I think I can make this soup, blend it and drink it from a cup… much easier when you’re in a hurry or just want it before your actual dinner!

  5. Thanks for sharing. I love this receipe however my little guy who is 3 also loves soup.He is not a fan of cooked broccoli and loves peas and corn. So I took part of it, put in a separate pot and added his faves.I also omitted the bell peppers, as I can’t tolerate them cooked and added, cabbage with the core removed..it wasn’t bitter.

  6. For extra lean protein, I add cooked ground turkey just before serving. Doesnt change the over all flavor at all. What a great receipe!

  7. Just found this recipe and intend to make it tomorrow. (after a trip to the market) Can I use fresh basil? If so, how much and when do I add it to the pot? thanks
    Oh, by the way, at first I thought it had 31 g fat. lol……….then I saw the -sign………..what does that mean?

    • Yikes, I’m not sure why it was showing -31g of fat (lol, I do wish it had -31g fat though). Thank you for letting me know, I’ve updated the recipe.

  8. Yes, I made this soup in 2016 when I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. The recipe is big , it took me three days to finish eating  it. When I first made this soup I did not print it out , I just made it looking at the computer screen. I’ve been trying to find it since , but I’m glad I found it today. I’ll be sure to print it out for future use. I love this recipe!

  9. Great recipe. Omitted the broccoli as I just didn’t have any. No other changes and will make again soon.

  10. What is the carb count if I omit diced tomatoes, tomato paste, carrots and green beans? It seems those are the higher carb veggies to cut if I am on the keto diet. Thanks.

  11. I just made this soup in slow cooker.
    It is absolutely fabulous and with rice or beans as a side dish as a “vegan” you are set ! The only change I made is;instead of 6 cups of beef broth, I used 6 cups of water adding 2 vegetable bouillons.

    Except the broccoli”,put everything into the slow cooker,stir well,put the lid on and cook it on HIGH for 5 hours. Do not peek,do not stir,leave it alone ! After 5 hours add in the broccoli and stir (broccoli can not be cooked for too long otherwise they will fall apart and get very mushy) ……………tadaaa you will have healthy,inexpensive,filling meal :-)

  12. Scrumptious and delicious..

  13. Scrumptious love this!!! Give this a try also

  14. Can I substitute the beef broth for chicken broth?

  15. I’ve made this recipe a few times, and it’s always good.

  16. This soup is amazing,choc full of veg and very tasty.will make again and again.

  17. This soup is absolutely AMAZING!!!!

  18. I just made this for the first time, and it turned out great! I did tweak it a bit, though, using chunky tomato sauce that I canned last summer and homemade beef stock. I also used double the garlic, a large vidalia onion instead of small yellow, and added 2 sprigs of fresh thyme, 5 bay leaves, paprika, and crushed red pepper. I’m not normally big on veggie soups, but this has amazing flavor and substance! You could also pretty easily substitute veggie stock (SO easy to make yourself) instead of beef if you wanted to do a vegan version.. Good stuff!

  19. Very flavorful and super low in calories. Makes a big amount.

  20. Can you add potatoes (baby red and baby yellow) and when 

  21. I made this soup yesterday 3/24/2018 I made it exactly like it said for the vetables and broth, but I seasoned it with Italian seasoning and used a level tablespoon of coconut oil to soften the onions. I forgot the bay leaves. It was very good and I will soon be ready to make my second batch.

  22. Very good and easy
    Can we add celery

  23. My husband and I just love this soup!!!
    I remember a soup like this that I still have from WW.

  24. Wow, this is great. I made it for dinner tonight and since IT was dinner I added some diced up cajun style andouille sausage. It gave it quite a kick and we both enjoyed it. Not sure about the weight loss part since the 2 of us ate half the recipe in one sitting…lol

  25. Excellent soup! I made a few notifications but it turned out excellent and will make it again.

  26. I have made this soup several times and it is so good and hearty. I have modified the vegetables and made with chicken broth instead of beef. It is good anyway I make it.

  27. Made it before and loved it but can’t remember if I used beef or vegetable broth which I have on hand today .

  28. Can I use vegetable broth and get the same result?

  29. Oh my goodness. Can’t believe something low in calories can taste so good. Absolutely delicious.

  30. Delicious!

  31. Why would a vegetarian recipe include beef broth? That is very odd. 

  32. Tastes great! Thank you! 

  33. How can I make a comment when the recipe does not print

  34. This sounds so good I am going to try your recipe

  35. Great soup, I added some lentils in each of the bowls , everyone just loved it, Very filling!

  36. This soup was excellent and easy to make. Definitely great for a cold day as a meal or as a snack.

  37. The soup was very good! I added potatoes and celery in place of beans. I also added some cornstarch and water to make the broth more thicker. I also added some salt and more pepper. My kids ate some and they couldn’t tell it was homemade .  I will make again but maybe I’ll make half of the ingredients as it makes a whole pot full!

  38. Best vegetable soup I have ever made. The best part is it is so filling that you don’t feel like your on a diet. Two thumbs up 

  39. I will try that because I love Vegetables

  40. This is absolutely delicious and so easy to make.  For my husband Iadded some cooked chicken and a piece of Parmesan Cheese rind.  That made it even better.

  41. I thought it was very good. The beef broth gave it a nice rich flavor. I used a can of tomato sauce instead of the paste because that’s all I had. I added chopped celery because I had some. And I also had quinoa so I added that in before serving. Delicious!

  42. I make this at least once a month. It’s the first dish that I’m able to eat and not get sick of.

  43. I make this soup all the time! It’s super easy and versatile, you can really use any veggies you have in the fridge. I always try to include the broccoli, green beans and zucchini. Flavorful and healthy for any meal. 

  44. This soup is sooo good! Love it!

  45. whole food looks so yummy, lovely look.

  46. Can I leave out the peppers or substitute another vegetable? I don’t care for the taste of bell peppers in anything! Thanks!

  47. Can I use rutabaga instead of cabbage. As I’m not a fan of cooked cabbage?

  48. This looks much like the heart health diet from 40+ years ago. Someone at work bring in a crockpot full and we would add to it thru out the week. If you do this put it in the fridge every night.

  49. This looks good, it is basically my Veggie Chili Recipe – Except for Basil and Thyme I use Chili powder and Cumin, add kidney beans, subtract cabbage, and no beef broth, but enough water/tomato paste for the right consistency. Thanks for the new idea on making it into a soup!

  50. This is one of my favorite soups regardless if I’m on a diet or not! Excellent!

  51. This soup is delicious we made it on Wednesday, we made a big stock pot full and I just had some for lunch. Thank you.

  52. Fabulous healthy recipe! I added some chicken sausage and cheddar for the top and it was scrumptous. Great recipe for a diabetic. 

  53. Soup is delicious. I substitute kale for broccoli and added a vegetable broth instead of beef with a dash of cayenne pepper. Very delicious

  54. Has anyone tried adding kidney/cannolini beans or something along those lines?

  55. This soup hit the spot, but I blew the serving size it was so good, I had two bowls.  I used a slow cooker, so I added 2 additional cups of water and the whole can of paste.  I omitted the peppers and added some baby spinach.  I had fresh parsley and added that too.  It was truly delicious, thank you!

  56. I LOVE LOVE LOVE taking this soup for lunch! So yummy! :)

  57. If wanting to lose weight, can this be eaten twice a day for lunch and dinner, or just once a day?

  58. I used organic veggie broth and did not have cabbage so threw in some corn. It was delicious! Thanks for sharing.

  59. I love the soup made exactly as stated. I’m keeping track of my calorie and protein intake. I got the calories but do you by chance no the amount of protein per serving

  60. Making this tonight. Already made it a couple of times and it was great. This time I added more veggies than the recipe called for, used chicken broth and added chicken. Also add3d quinoa w/mushrooms. Almost Done!

  61. I love this recipe!  I used chicken broth instead of beef, and added the whole can of tomato paste.  It was delicious.

  62. on directions did not tell what temp to cook it on

    • Cook on medium for the first part. For simmering, bring to a boil, then reduce the temperature until there are small bubbles.

  63. This soup is the perfect vegetable soup, in my opinion. I know you can freeze this soup, but we love it so much, we never have any leftover to freeze! Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!

  64. How much water should you use to cook the veggies?

  65. Hi Holly,

    Do you used canned green beans or fresh?
    I’m making this on Sunday, because Dallas, Texas finally got some cooler weather. :)

  66.  This was absolutely delicious!! I love to blend all of these veggies in my blender and serve it smooth style!!

  67. Great soup!! I used chicken broth and added red kidney beans! My husband loved it!

  68. Love this soup. Made today for dinner. My family loved it. Whenever my teen daughter eats 2nds or 3rds I know the meal is a hit. Thank you for the recipe from a happy momma.

  69. How to on save want to make

  70. Love this recipe and while it IS super healthy and packed full of nourishing veggies and vitamins, it is not a 0 point soup, unfortunately, it’s still low, don’t get me wrong! But, when I entered the above nutrition into WW site, it came up with 2 points (smartpoints) per cup.

    Thanks!!

  71. I love this recipe! It’s so healthy and packed full of veggies that are challenging to get into my diet individually. Delicious too!

  72. This recipe is delicious!! Just made enough for my work week..

  73. This soup is great. Made it earlier this week and making it again today. Delicious. Thanks for sharing.

  74. I made this last weekend and it was fabulous. I added the whole can of tomato paste, added some cauliflower and simmered it longer.
    Going to make again soon. Love, love, love it. Thanks.

  75. you could also add rutabaga if you like would add to it.

  76. The brilliance of this recipe is that the soup isn’t over cooked. The more you cook food, you remove the life-force from the food that makes you live longer. Very nice.

  77. Hi! I was wondering if there was something I can use in place of the tomato (both the diced and the paste)? Sadly, we can’t use tomato. 
    Thank you for any suggestions!

  78. Just made a huge batch of this & I have to say YUMMMMMMMM!
    I didn’t measure anything out, just dumped. Added some red pepper flakes & 2 more bay leaves. I don’t think you could put anything in it to even try to make it taste bad. Thank you so much for sharing this.

  79. I will be making this soup this week end. Need to get some veggies home. I will be trying it with chicken broth and left over chicken. So looking forward to it :)

  80. I love veggies and with fall around the corner, I feel this soup is an easy fix. I followed the recipe exactly, it was easy to prepare and fast to cook. It has a great flavor. I also love it’s low in calories and a diet freebie!
    To add more spice, I add lemon and tapatio to my bowl.

    I want to freeze this for meals and snacks ahead of time. How long can I store this is the freezer & fridge?

    • I am so glad you liked the recipe! This soup will freeze well for several months, if it lasts that long :D
      In the fridge, I would not leave it more than 3 days for freshness.

  81. Wow. This is going to be a regular fixin’ at our house. Such a fan…

  82. My husband and I love this soup! However I do love to make recipes my own. I omitted the thyme and basil. I substitute green beans for Garbanza (chick peas). I also omitted the tomato paste since my husband cannot have so much tomatoes. I substituted diced tomatoes for rotel. The perfect recipe!!! Thanks for sharing your recipes!

  83. My husband loves this soup. He asked me to make it a weekly staple in our home. 

  84. Have made this soup several times and love it.  My hubby likes it a little spicy so I sometimes add a quarter teaspoon of chilli flakes.  I often serve his over some left over rice or pasta and top it off with a teaspoon or so of fresh grated Parmesan cheese. Yummy.

  85. Made this today using marjoram( which i add to most of my beef dishes) , thyme & 2 bay leaves as my seasonings. ..& OMG it’s delicious…I’m a soupy & to have a veg one that doesn’t leave me wanting some noodles, barley, or meat added is fantastic!! Thank you!! & easy to easily found on Myfitnesspal.com too!

  86. Made this for my bible study group. It was a big hit !

  87. What can I use instead of the beef broth? I am a vegetarian. Thank you!

  88. Made the soup and it was really great. My husband is even eating it, but he added ground turkey. He must have meat.

  89. I’m Hooked On This Delicious Soup & Now Cooking More & Sharing With Everyone!!! It’s Too Darn Good Not To Be Shared!!! YUMMY!

  90. Would this be ok to make in the crock pot?

  91. Love this soup!

  92. How would you count on 21 day fix?

  93. Seriously love this recipe! We make it all the time!! :)

  94. yes, I did and it was pretty good if I must say myself, I made it for me and cooked my husband something different, I had to make a second batch because he was eating it also.

  95. Can’t have onions or garlic-what can I substitute for additional flavor and also what flavorings or spices did you use?

  96. Love this recipe

  97. This is so incredibly delicious!!!!!thank you

  98. Put some white or kidney beans in for extra protein.

  99. Can fresh tomatoes be used instead of canned?

    • The juices from the canned tomatoes do add a lot of additional flavor so you might need to add some extra tomato paste if you’re skipping the canned tomatoes.

  100. love this soup made it all the time lost a lot of weight on it super soup thanks

  101. This soup is so good made it all the time then lost therecipe when we moved so glad I scrolled through this site .It gets five stars thanks.

  102. Love the recipe

  103. I use this soup as a base and add to it,today I made it up as per directions but added some curry powder,Thai seasoning and 1/4 cup of light coconut milk then I blended up half of it and added it back to the mix,also added 1 teaspoon of stevia sugar,yummo.

    • Thank you for the the substitution ideas! Glad you love it.

    • Your changes sound yummy but I got confused when you wrote you blend up half of ‘it’, what is the ‘it’?  Half of the veggies and add back to the pot or half of the spices and coconut milk whereas the rest was just added?  I’m a visual person and couldn’t quite ‘see’ so I wanted to ask because it all sounds good even blended veggies.  

  104. Thank you for such exciting recipes.

  105. Can hardly wait to get your recipes

  106. Soup was yummy

  107. The veggie soup looks awesome, I don’t like veggies so what I do is purée them so am getting the soup but don’t know what I am actually eating

  108. This looks absolutely fantastic! The positive health benefits of the chosen vegetables is tremendous I will certainly be trying this recipe!!

  109. This soup and other recipes you have posted look so good I can’t wait to try. Thanks for your posts. Have a great day

  110. Sound great, but I can’t eat any of the bells family. Can sub. with other types of peppers? (Like Canned Ortega, Anaheim or Poblano)

  111. I want to try this recipe. Please send it to me

  112. Hey, after freezing how would you reheat? Would you need to defrost first etc? Starting a 40 hour job next week and would like to start taking lunch and this would be perfect.

  113. Delicious! Tastes great, and for my girlfriend, no points! For me, I added some leftover chicken and it was delicious for me too!

  114. Any suggestions for a cabbage substitution for those that can’t eat it. Looks like a yummy soup!

  115. Am I missing something. It gives nutritional values but where does it tell how much a “serving” is? That is necessary.

  116. Really delicious! Used half no Salt added diced tomatoes and half fire roasted crushed tomatoes. Only added a teaspoon of salt total to entire soup and it was perfect. Lots of flavor. Also reheats well on stovetop.

  117. This soup sounds super for me next week it will be Weight Loss Vegetable Soup. Cant wait to try it.

  118. I recently started the every other day diet and this soup is perfect for the modified fasting days. It fills me up, keeps me satisfied, and is healthy to boot! I add a little hot sauce with each bowl and it gives it a nice little kick!

  119. Really need to make this soup. Looks good!

  120. Love all this

  121. As I read the directions and watched the video , I noticed that it stated to cook the onions and garlic first. Cook it in what ? Butter, margarine, oil, or just in a dry pot? Is there a non fat oil, butter or margarine. I was just wondering how to get it started. Thanks for your time.

    • I use a non stick pan, so I don’t use anything to start the onions and garlic. However you can use a little water if you like.

  122. YOUR SOUP LOOKS SO GOOD , WILL TRY!!!!

  123. Ok, how do you start cooking the onions and garlic? Spray the pot? Or do you start with a certain amount of water in the pot?

    • I use a non stick pan, so I don’t use anything to start the onions and garlic. However you can use a little water if you like.

  124. Do you know what the exchange is for 21 day fix meal plan users? Thank you.

  125. My question is for the skinny soup with vegetables, is that all you can eat for a week? If not what do you suggest I have for breakfast or lunch?
    Thanks

    • I personally use it to fill me up in between and before meals. :) It doesn’t have all of the nutrients you’d need for the week (like protein, fats and carbohydrates).

  126. Absolutely love this soup. I added the tri colored spiral pasta at the end and a couple more seasonings, used veggie broth as I’m vegetarian and it’s amazing. Been eating it every day, can’t get enough! Thank you so much.

  127. What could I substitute for the cabbage? Doesn’t agree with me.

  128. Can I blend the entire soup in a vitamix? I have kids that think vegetables are out to get them.

  129. I entered the nutrition facts into weight watchers and it brings up that this soup is 2 points per serving. Did I miss calculate? I am currently on WW and love this soup but have been counting it as zero points

  130. Can I use Chicken broth instead of beef?

  131. Smiling as i have found You Holly!

  132. Great soup…thanks

  133. Many thanks for the recipe of Skinny Chicken Alfredo. The taste of this dish is amazing.

  134. Banana pudding

  135. The soup looks delicious.. thank you for recipes

  136. i want to get some of your receipes

  137. Do you think this could be made easily in a crock pot instead?

  138. Do you have a measurement conversion chart? What’s a cup in grams please, everything I google gives me different quantities.
    Thankyou :)

  139. About WEIGHT LOSS VEGETABLE SOUP RECIPE How Can you Call it vegetable when you use beef broth, in it in sted of vege broth?

  140. They look lovely and lose weight as well

  141. Love this soup.

  142. How would I log this into my weight watchers?

  143. Just made this yummy soup. added tsp. of celery seed and cayenne pepper! Thanks for the recipe!

  144. You say fix approved… do you know the serving size & count/color containers it is?

  145. Do you know the containers for 21DF that this uses?

  146. How much is the serving please

  147. Excited to try this and read your blog!

  148. What could I substitute for cabbage . I hate cabbage. Thanks anita

  149. This is very similar to the soup from the famous “Cabbage Soup Diet”. I did a study on it in a nutrition class. So glass you went with more fresh vegetables and low sodium options. The “Cabbage Soup Diet” soup recipe relied on a lot of canned veggies and tomatoes as well as bullion as well as Lipton soup mix – this had almost toxic levels of sodum

    • I have seen the recipe for the Cabbage soup diet, I have to agree it is packed with sodium. I always prefer fresh veggies in my soup! Not only is i tastier, but so much healthier. I hope you get a chance to try this recipe Kenn. Thanks for stopping by!

  150. This is the best soup I have had in a long time Thank you

  151. If this is being called vegetable soup, why use beef broth? Why not use vegetable broth?

    • This is a vegetable soup, not a vegetarian soup. I use beef broth because I prefer the flavor but you can certainly substitute vegetable soup if you prefer.

  152. Yummy! Planning this for the weekend, since snow will be coming in!

  153. Love your recipes but hate how hard you make it to print or even save in pinterest.

  154. Recipes looks so good!!!

  155. I had just talked to a friend about a soup to start our diet this sound great.

  156. This is an amazing and delicious soup. I made it today and shared with my family.

  157. Was wondering if I could use a bag of cole slaw instead of chopping up the cabbage? Same thing? Just curious.

  158. Just finished simmering this soup with my own blend of seasonings. It smells phenomenal, can’t wait to sit down and enjoy it.

  159. Can I replace the beef broth with chicken broth?

  160. I made it tonight soooo good. I added cayenne pepper cause I like stuff spicy but that’s the only change. It really takes so little time but tastes like u cooked it in a crock pot all day. Chopping and cooking time for me was 25 min, and I didn’t know what I was doing so it will definitely be less next time. I wanted to add a pic of mine finished but it won’t let me. It looks just the same but not “pretty, bright and shiny” like the orig photo ;)

  161. what is the serving size for 58 calories?

  162. Love the recipes.

  163. I had a little olive oil when I sauté my onions and garlic, otherwise it always burns on me. I’m surprised the recipe doesn’t call for something to cook with them. My boys and I Love this soup. I didn’t have any thyme so I added basil and oregano. Also I didn’t have the tomato paste, found it didn’t need it anyways. Thank you for this amazing recipe!

  164. I am NOT a fan of veggies at all, but I made this for the first time and it is AMAZING. I’m still amazed how good it is. Very simple to make as well. Definitely won’t be the last time I make this.

  165. I made this soup tonight and it is delicious! I cooked it longer than stated in the directions because I wanted the veggies to be more tender and it turned out great.

    Thank you!

  166. I have a strange question. Can this soup be pureed, or can the veggies be very finely chopped in a processor before cooking? I have a texture issue with most cooked veggies, but I want the nutrients and fiber. Thanks!

  167. Can I puree the weight loss soup after I cook it?

  168. This was so good. Very healthy for you. My daughter is a vegetarian and absolutely loved it. Very easy to make

  169. I am vegetarian and this looks like heaven!! We are replacing with Vegetable broth and adding some mushrooms and a little extra stuff!! Perfect for rainy weather!! Thanks for the great recipe!!

  170. I should have written that I am making this soup to enjoy and not for weight loss

  171. since I am not making this soup to enjoy and not for weight loss. I am thinking of adding black beans to the mix. I was looking for a healthy soup recipe without meat and this seems to fit the bill. No, I am not a vegetarian but limit meat consumption for health reasons and be kind to my body

  172. How many days can i eat this soup?
    Can i eat o la that?
    Breakfast, lunch and dinner?

  173. This is an awesome recipe. Do you know how long it will keep in the frig?

  174. Can I add more broth or even water?

  175. I tried your veggie soup AND my family loves it. Thank you so much!!

  176. I bought the ingredients to make this soup and wondering how I can be done in 6-7 min and the vegtables be done?

    • You’re going to cook the onions in step 1 first and then add the veggies in step 2 and cook for 5 minutes. You’ll add broth in step 3 and cook for 6-7 minutes and then additional veggies for another 5 minutes.

      The total will be about 28 minutes.

  177. How crunchy are the veggies suppose to be?

  178. Going to try that tomorrow.

  179. Made it tonight and my almost 2 year old grandson loved it also. I will make this again. Thank you for sharing this with me and family.

  180. How long soul it last in the freezer? Sorry I’ve never really been one to freeze stuff line soup so I’d like to know….

  181. when it says 6 cups of beef broth…..is that beef cubes melted with water???

  182. Ok this may be a really stupid question…. I’m not much of a cook so bare with me….. I love love love sour cabbage… can u use that in this instead of regular cabbage? Would u have to do anything diffferent?

    • I haven’t tried this recipe with sour cabbage so I can’t say for sure how it would change the recipe. If you do try it, please let us know how it turns out for you!

  183. The recipe says 1/2 tsp of thyme and basil, but in the video it looks like they are adding at least a tablespoon or two of each…

    • The amount listed in the recipe is correct. In the video I had basil, thyme and pepper combined all in one little bowl and added it all at once. I also added a sprinkle of parsley.

  184. Love your recipes, can you send some good ones for people with diabetes ?

  185. Made this ..added celery and few spicy bits ..only because I cant taste..so it has to look colourful and the texture has to be nice …and it was lush ..I have to take to work on Monday for work colleagues…gonna defo be trying others x

  186. I have a question. In the beginning when you cook the onions and garlic what prevents it from burning since there is no liquid in there and when you add the cabbage, carrots and green beans with no liquid or oil base what makes these vegetable get tender? I can’t digest raw or partially cooked veggies and have to have them cooked nearly tender.

  187. Love the several recipes that I read anxious to get on the list !!

  188. What is a serving size?

  189. Love this soup! I added celery, parsely, a few more garlic cloves and yellow squash! I also used diced italian herbed marzano tomato’s. It is very flavorful and I could eat it all day long! Thanks for the recipe!

  190. Why isn’t a list of seasonings included with this video posting or the printed version?

    • The seasonings are listed in the recipe.

      2 bay leaves
      ½ teaspoon each thyme & basil
      pepper to taste

      You can add a sprinkle of fresh parsley or herbs as well if desired.

  191. Just wanted to add that making your own vegetable stock is really easy.
    Save all of your veg scraps – you can store i nfreezer until you have enough.

    http://ohmyveggies.com/how-to-make-vegetable-broth-with-kitchen-scraps/

  192. Too much cabbage, zucchini and broccoli for my husband’s diet…Warfarin and those veggies don’t mix so well. Sounds good to me though.

  193. What type of veggies does this call for fresh
    Frozen or can? I would like to use fresh and frozen.

  194. I make this soup, but use rotel tomatoes, celery and lots of cabbage as I love cabbage plus all the other raw veggies in a slow cooker.

  195. I added kale. :)

  196. What seasoning are being use in this soup? Doesnt say in the ingredients list.

  197. Can I use frozen vegetables?

  198. Wow, awesome and tasty too‼. Thanks for helping me fine healty meals.

  199. I used Rotel tomatoes for the diced tomatoes giving a wee bit of spice. Also used some frozen mixed vegetables along with broccoli, cauliflower and a small amount of new red potatoes. I now call it the “to die for weight loss” soup. . Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.

  200. This soup is delicious. As a change, I replace the tomatoes with a can of Rotel tomatoes, I like spicy. I’m a Lifetime Member of WW (25 years), so I’ve changed this soup up a lot.

  201. Any suggestions to replace the cabbage? Def want to try this! Mmm

    Nicole

    • I have only made the soup as written so I haven’t tried substituting the cabbage.

      Since a large portion of this soup is made up of cabbage, you’ll need something with bulk such as kale or extra zucchini (or even zucchini noodles). Spinach is another great addition although it doesn’t have as much bulk.

  202. I love this soup. It’s so versatile, you really cannot mess it up. I add a cup of spicy v-8 for added kick. It’s perfect when you’re feeling a bit fluffy.

  203. Have lost my printer in a flood and have not had time to replace it yet but would love to save this recipe for future.

    • You can save it by pinning it to your Pinterest board if you have a Pinterest account.

    • You could also copy the recipe into an email that you send to yourself with the subject line “Weight Loss Vegetable Soup” (or whatever you want to call it). Then just email it to yourself! When you’re ready to make it, just pull up your email account and search for the name and there it is! And whenever you get a new printer, you can simply print your email.

  204. How many calories is this?? I’m new to calorie counting and idk how to work it out

    • I have updated the post with the information. Please note that this is based on my own calculations using the brands and ingredients I have used, your soup may vary slightly. (This is for informational purposes only and is not to be considered medical advice).

  205. Do u have anything with low carbs please send me them thank you for ur help thank you

  206. Hi Holly, whats the count on 21 day fix … i can’t see it in comments
    Thanks!

  207. L♥ve the healthy recipes

  208. I have never tried bell peppers for soup before. Interesting. I will put that in my next batch. I had planned vegetable soup for tomorrow’s lunch/dinner. New Years resolution to lose weight, as usual.

  209. What did you pour over it at the last second? Looks like soy sauce or something.. also, any suggestions – I used a lot of frozen veggies & I feel it’s real bland.

    • The only thing added at the last second was a sprinkle of pepper from a pepper grinder. If you have fresh herbs, they’re great added in just before serving. I find beef broth adds way more flavor than chicken broth.

  210. I see that it’s 0 WW points but do you know the calories per serving? Thank you!

    • I have updated the post with the information. Please note that this is based on my own calculations using the brands and ingredients I have used, your soup may vary slightly. (This is for informational purposes only and is not to be considered medical advice).

  211. Weight loss soup looks real. Its something I will try.

  212. How many carbs?

    • I have updated the post with the information. Please note that this is based on my own calculations using the brands and ingredients I have used, your soup may vary slightly. (This is for informational purposes only and is not to be considered medical advice).

  213. will use different veggies but sounds good

  214. I tried this and loved it ever since! I make huge pots and freeze in single servings. I love love love this soup!!! And i have dropped quite a few lbs eating this instead of chips or other junk. I even pureed some and used it as broth to drink at work on days when i won’t get a lunch break. Thanks for the recipe!

  215. What do your soup recipes consider a serving size to be?

  216. I can’t eat this w/w skinny soup as it has broccoli in it and I’m highly allergic to broccoli, can I substiute the broccoli for a different vegetable???

  217. Suggestions for making in crockpot? I have a large family and with all the ingredients, I could use the extra space to cook it in. (I have 3 crockpots lol)

    • I haven’t tried this in the slow cooker however I’m sure it would work just fine. I would suggest adding the zucchini and broccoli about 30 minutes before serving so they don’t get mushy.

  218. Can’t have tomatoes- does that change the soup that much?

  219. Awesome ideas to start out the new year

  220. I made it tonight for dinner. My husband loved it. I had to add ground turkey. He’s a meat eater.

  221. How many carbs are in the soup?

    • I have updated the post with the information. Please note that this is based on my own calculations using the brands and ingredients I have used, your soup may vary slightly. (This is for informational purposes only and is not to be considered medical advice).

  222. Thank you so much for the recipe!! My mind is all really spinning on what other things’s I can throw in with!!

  223. What if you wanted to have more like a bowl of soup at a time instead of just a cup?

  224. I have to change to way i eat because of my cholesterol, so i would assume that this would be good for it.

  225. If I wanted to lose weight with the weight loss soup would it be OK to do two meal replacement shakes during the day and the soup for my dinner?

  226. This is a very good soup and looks beautiful. My dad was a good cook and he always made this but added lean ground beef that had been browned but his secret ingredient was V8 Juise in place of the beef broth. Not sure what that would do to the calories but the flavor was good! Thank you for sharing you recipe!

  227. Love these recipes, do you have a recipe book
    and can I purchase it?

  228. very tasty soup, cooking time seemed a little short, my veggies very still very crunchy, so I just extended the time a bit, turned out very good. Thanks for posting this recipe :-)

  229. Any idea of actual nutritional content?

    • I have updated the post with the information. Please note that this is based on my own calculations using the brands and ingredients I have used, your soup may vary slightly. (This is for informational purposes only and is not to be considered medical advice).

  230. I am going to try these soups. Looks so yummy and the best thing is healthy.

  231. Would you have a suggestion of a substitution for the cabbage? I love everything else in the recipe but I am really not a fan of cabbage.

    • I have only made the soup as written so I haven’t tried substituting the cabbage.

      Since a large portion of this soup is made up of cabbage, you’ll need something with bulk such as kale or extra zucchini (or even zucchini noodles). Spinach is another great addition although it doesn’t have as much bulk.

    • try bok choi

  232. Can I leave out the cabbage and add potatoes

    • I have only made the soup as written so I haven’t tried substituting the cabbage. That would definitely work however note that potatoes are higher in carbs and calories than cabbage so this will change the nutritional value substantially.

  233. What is the carb count on this?

    • I have updated the post with the information. Please note that this is based on my own calculations using the brands and ingredients I have used, your soup may vary slightly. (This is for informational purposes only and is not to be considered medical advice).

  234. I am going to make this today.
    Looks amazing!!!

  235. I really want to try this recipe! It looks delicious. I follow 21 Day Fix. Do you know which containers a serving counts as?

  236. I really dont like cabbage. Im wondering if it will work without it. I am seriously overweight and a very picky eater in terms of flavour. Im wondering if I make this soup without the cabbage and use the 1 cup servings as you suggest, how much chicken can I add and still have it “healthy”?

    • The definition of healthy may vary depending on your own personal goals. I do consider lean chicken (such as roasted or grilled chicken breasts) to be healthy and I personally would add about 2-3oz of lean chicken per serving.

  237. Looking for healthy low calorie recipes. Need to lose weight and keep it off

    • This is really good and I am on my second day. When I weighed this morning I was down 1 lb. weight watchers would call this zero points. When you are eating basically no carbs or fat you will lose. Good luck.

  238. What is a serving size? 1 cup?

  239. What do you cook the onions and garlic in? Oil? Butter?

  240. Can it be made with chicken stock instead of beef broth as the beef broth has preservatives which I am allergic to?

  241. What is “21 day fix”?

  242. Crazy question i LOVE All the veggies except I HATE cabbage! LOL can I substitute that for anything else? Or is it really not that noticeable?

    • I have only made the soup as written so I haven’t tried substituting the cabbage. Since a large portion of this soup is made up of cabbage, you’ll need something with bulk such as kale or extra zucchini (or even zucchini noodles). Spinach is another great addition although it doesn’t have as much bulk.

      • Thanks for this post. I hate cabbage but love kale. Making it for my lunch for the week to go with a kale/spinach/chard salad

  243. I’m on a lot carb diet any idea of the carb count? THANK

    • I have updated the post with the information. Please note that this is based on my own calculations using the brands and ingredients I have used, your soup may vary slightly. (This is for informational purposes only and is not to be considered medical advice).

  244. Have just made this, it’s amazing…I read all the direction’s, so I knew I could swap veggies, and spices…Will defiantly be making it again

  246. This looks amazing. .

    • I have updated the post with the information. Please note that this is based on my own calculations using the brands and ingredients I have used, your soup may vary slightly. (This is for informational purposes only and is not to be considered medical advice).

  248. Do you by chance know what containers/how many in a serving it uses for 21 day fix?

    • Since its just vegetables, I would fill your green container with the veggies (1 green) and broth is free so you can just ladle broth overtop. Enjoy!

  249. I a man having trouble pinning your great recipes from my IPhone. What am I doing wrong? I love your recipes.

  253. Can I use frozen vegetables?

  254. Have you done this in a slow cooker?

    • I haven’t but I think it would work just fine! I would suggest adding the zucchini and broccoli about 30 minutes before it’s done so they don’t get mushy.

  255. I’m on weight watchers I will make this soup looks healthy.

  256. can you use veg stock to make it vegetarian friendly?

  257. Do I have to add bay leaves and thyme …can I add chicken and still had the same effect?

  258. Does anyone know how long it will keep when frozen? I made the soup tonight with no salt added canned tomatoes and green beans, still had loads of flavor without the sodium. It filled 15 containers for the freezer, each holds a 1.5 cup serving :) I love the recipe, thanks for sharing!

  259. Do you have the nutritional information for this soup? It looks great and im strictly counting my calories however I’m not familiar with the weight watcher’s point system.

  268. The recipe has it cooking so quickly I’m just wondering how it will work if you want to cook it in the slow cooker?

    • I haven’t tried it in the slow cooker. I’d love to hear how it works out if you do try it!

    • This soup does great in the slow cooker. I do mine on low and it is ready when I get home.

      • I’m not a great cook so I have to ask how long do you cook it in the crock pot?

        • Low temp usually 6-8 hrs, if that. But if you’re working, I’d put just a little extra liquid so it doesn’t go dry on you.

          • Thank you!

          • I have also done it in the slow cooker. Mine has an Auto Shift button. I use that option when I’m not going to be home to monitor the amount of liquid. I have also done this in my pressure cooker to get a batch done quickly after coming back from snowmobiling or skiing. Takes about 10 mins to complete

  269. Those green tabs are awful. They are in the way and when I try to tak a photo of the recipe I end up having to take extras as I can only see a small art of the recipe at a time. Plesae move them. Thanks.

  270. This soup is wonderful! We added extra lean ground turkey and a cup of chopped celery. What do you consider a serving of this soup – 1 cup?

  271. This soup looks so hearty and comforting! I love being able to freeze soup for later, too since I live alone. Beautiful photographs!

  272. These recipes look wonderful. I’m going try them all.

  273. This soup is gorgeous! And whether it’s for weight loss or not, I could eat it every day! It’s like how I eat my salads (with tons of veggies in them) but in soup form, love it!

  274. ZERO WW points?! That’s just plain amazing <3 I'm in love with this colorful soup!
