It's Never Looked So Bad and Tasted So Good

Veggie Delight

For the last few weeks, I’ve been hearing about this amazing soup that is super low fat (ZERO WW points) and amazingly tasty. I was skeptical because how can anything that good and healthy be that delicious?  But my curiosity was piqued, so I assembled the very simple ingredients. Let me tell you the reviews are true!  The recipe I used made a huge batch which lasted almost five days. It definitely helped fill me up and kept me from making any bad choices.  I loved it so much I’ve decided to keep a batch handy for lunches during the week.

There are variations of this recipe all over the internet but I really liked this one from A Veggie Venture. Note: From what I’ve heard cabbage is key to this recipe.

I’ve never used it in anything until now so I went to my friend Google and found this helpful guide. I’m too impatient for YouTube but there are tons of videos there as well.

Abracadabra:  The secret ingredient.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups veggie broth
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 4 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1/2 pound frozen green beans (I forgot this ingredient but had a bag of frozen green beans/cauliflower mix from TJ’s that worked perfectly.)
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste (Oops.I used half a can and it was fine)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 large zucchini, diced (I used more because I love zucchini…not as much as I love wine but that probably wouldn’t taste good in the soup.)

Directions

  • Spray a Dutch oven with cooking spray and heat on MEDIUM HIGH.
  • Add the carrots, onion and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Add all the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the zucchini and bring to a boil.
  • Cover, reduce the heat to MEDIUM and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the beans are tender.
  • Add the zucchini and cook until the zucchini are tender.

Serve and enjoy! Velvet Moon is optional (but a great enhancement to any meal.)

I dare you to only have one helping!

  1. Sloppy Jo (I’m guessing that’s not your real name, but hoping that’s what you want to be called) I love your recipe and your sense of humor! I’m super excited to make this soup, and btw, there are plenty of recipes that call for wine ;)

    I think this soup would actually taste good with a wee splash of wine…
    Thanks SJ!
