Fresh Vegetable Soup: 1 Points Plus Value!



I started making this soup when I was doing Weight Watchers and I fell in love with it. I am finally getting around to posting it today. I hope you all love it as much as I do. It's incredibly good for you and very figure friendly, so you can eat it guilt-free. ENJOY!!!

Ingredients



2 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced

1 medium onion(s), diced

2 medium carrot(s), diced

1 medium sweet red pepper(s), diced

1 stalk(s) (medium) celery, diced

2 small zucchini, diced

2 cup(s) green cabbage, shredded

2 cup(s) Swiss chard, chopped

2 cup(s) cauliflower, small florets

2 cup(s) broccoli, small florets

2 tsp thyme, fresh, fresh, chopped

6 cup(s) vegetable broth

2 Tbsp parsley, or chives, fresh, chopped

1/2 tsp table salt, or to taste

1/4 tsp black pepper, or to taste

2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, optional

Instructions

Chop up your stuff.

Put noodles, seasoning packet, garlic, vegetables, thyme and broth into a large soup pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to low and simmer, partly covered, about 10 minutes.

Stir in parsley or chives; season to taste with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Yields about 1 cup per serving.

This soup is going to rock your socks off! It is so good! Freezes well, and reheats well, too, so do yourself a favor and double up the batch!

ONE POINTS PLUS VALUE per serving...so, like, almost nothing for all you "watchers of weight" out there. ;)

When do you add the ramen noodles and do you add the flavor packet too.

I am normally scared of making soup, but I was always good at ramen noddles in college. Thank you for the inspiration and love your blog.

Looks tasty, but I can't go along with saying it's "good for you" when it's got ramen seasoning in it. That stuff is loaded with sodium, sugars, MSG, and chemical preservatives. Make the soup without the ramen and throw in some whole wheat spaghetti and extra spices.
