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!!!


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


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, like, almost nothing for all you "watchers of weight" out there. ;)
