Another Veggie Soup

Another Veggie Soup
(0 Points -Weight Watchers)
I'm a veggie fanatic, and this soup is healthy, 0 points, and absolutely amazing.  If you like to eat light for lunch like I do, this may become a favorite.  You can eat as much of this as you want and not grow a muffin top!  :)  Also, if there's a veggie that you'd like to add or subtract, feel free!  Also, I use bags of frozen veggies just to make it a little more simple.  Either way, it's healthy and easy!
This recipe serves 12.
Ingredients
  • 6 cups nonfat beef broth
  • 3 cups green cabbage, Diced
  • 2 cups cauliflower, small florets
  • 1 1/3 cups carrots, Sliced
  • 1 cup onion, Diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, Minced
  • 1 cup green beans
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 3 stalks celery, Diced
  • 1 bell pepper, Diced
  • 2 cups mushrooms, Sliced
  • 2 cups broccoli, Chopped
  • 2 small zucchini, diced

Directions
  1. Add all the ingredients into a large pot or slow-cooker. (Add or subract veggies according to your preference) 
  2. Simmer until Veggies are cooked.
  3. Season to taste.
  4. Note: you may want to exchange the Beef broth for Fat-Free Chicken Broth or Fat-Free Vegetable Broth depending on your preference. 
It's THAT simple, and SO good for you!!!!
