Soup's on!

Last night on facebook, I posted a photo of a soup I made that is somewhere between zero and one weight watchers point per serving. There are lots of recipes out there but I really like this one so I'm sharing it with you.

Zero Point Soup*

5 cups of vegetable broth
2 tablespoons of tomato paste
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
salt to taste

1 large onion
1 bag of frozen medley (cauliflower, broccoli, carrots)
1 can of cut green beans
1 red pepper
(You can add other vegetables that that you like as well. Stay away from things like any kind of potato, beans, corn, peas- too starchy and will add points.)

In a pan, spray some cooking spray and sautee one cut up onion and one red pepper for a few minutes.
Mix broth ingredients in a large pot and start to cook on high heat until it starts to boil, then turn to medium.
Add sauted vegetables, bag of frozen medley and drained can of green beans.
Simmer on stove for about an hour or so or until all vegetables are soft and soup is hot.

5 one cup servings

* Keep in mind, even the lowest calorie vegetables have some calories so eat enough to feel satisfied but you may not want to eat the entire pot at one sitting. :)


  1. This is what's for dinner. I have a leftover roast chicken in the fridge, and it's about to become STOCK.
    I love the tip on preparing the pepper.
    Thanks for sharing! No worries, I won't get to eat the whole pot, I have two soup loving kids at home.

  2. Can also add cabbage to the soup. I do that in place of the green beans sometimes to change it up.
    Been a staple for me since I joined Weight Watchers in 2009.

  3. The soup is so good, and can be switched up to make it different, but still a WW soup. I love this variation! Freezes well too!

  4. love this receipe.... now, trying not to add anything else to the soup.....hummmm, i have frozen turkey bones in the freezer, so mine might have a few more cal's in it, although i can live with that.........
    thanks for sharing
