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

  2. 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!

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

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

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. This soup looks delicious!! Do you have an idea of what the calorie count is per serving?

  9. Can you substitute the bell peppers for cauliflower?

  10. How many calories is in a cup of weight loss vegetable soup?

  16. 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.
    Thanks!

  17. 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!

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

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

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

  21. 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.

  22. Can I use frozen vegetables?

  23. Thank you for posting! This sounds wonderful (except for the broccoli)! I love homemade soups. That it’s healthy is a big plus!!

  24. Love this soup

  25. What would be the carb count on this? My diabetic doctor has me counting carbs to insulin ratio.

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

  27. 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!

  28. about your Weight Loss Vegetable Soup Recipe how many carbs per serving?

    • 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).

  29. This looks amazing. .
    Thank you. .

  30. How long will this keep in the refrigerator? I made it today and it’s delicious!

  31. 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

  32. 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).

  33. 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

  34. What is “21 day fix”?

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

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

  37. What is a serving size? 1 cup?

  38. 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.

  39. 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.

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

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

  42. 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).

  43. 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.

  44. 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

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

  46. 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).

  47. 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 :-)

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

  49. 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!

  50. 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?

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

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

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

  54. 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).

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

  56. Awesome ideas to start out the new year

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

  58. 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.

  59. 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???

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

  61. 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!

  62. will use different veggies but sounds good

  63. 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).

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

  65. 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).

  66. 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.

  67. 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.

  68. L♥ve the healthy recipes

  73. 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.

  74. 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.

  75. 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.

  76. 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.

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

  78. Can I use frozen vegetables?

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

  80. I added kale. :)

  81. 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.

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

  83. 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.

  84. 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.

  85. 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.

  86. 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!

  87. What is a serving size?

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

  89. 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.

  90. 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

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

  92. 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.

  93. 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!

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

  95. 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….

  96. 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.

  97. Going to try that tomorrow.

  98. How crunchy are the veggies suppose to be?

  99. 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.

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

  101. Can I add more broth or even water?

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

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

  104. 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

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

  106. 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!!

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

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

  109. 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!

  110. 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!

  111. 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.

  112. 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!

  113. Love the recipes.

  114. what is the serving size for 58 calories?

  115. 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 ;)

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

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

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

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

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

  121. Recipes looks so good!!!

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

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

  124. 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.

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

  126. 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!

  149. 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.

  150. 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).

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

  152. 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.

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

  154. 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.

  155. Love all this

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

  157. 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!

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

  159. 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.

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

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

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

  163. 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.

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

  165. 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)

  166. 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

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

  168. 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

  169. Soup was yummy

  170. Can hardly wait to get your recipes

  171. Thank you for such exciting recipes.

  172. 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.  

  173. Love the recipe

  174. 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.

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

  176. 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.

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

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

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

  191. 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.

  193. 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!

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

  195. 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.

  196. 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 :)

  197. 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.

  198. 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!

  199. 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.

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

  201. 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.

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

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

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

  205. 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!!

  206. How to on save want to make

  207. 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.

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

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

  210. Hi Holly,

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

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

  212. 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!

  213. 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.

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

  215. 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!

  216. 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

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