WW - 0 point soup

Finally had a good week at WW!!! Yeah!! Lost 1.6 pounds!!  It helped that I didn't have any Christmas parties to attend!  The big test will be the weeks to follow though! I want to enjoy the holidays but I don't want to go overboard!!

I have been on and off WW for about 4 years and one of the secret to my "success", are the WW 0 point soups.  I just love having a nice veggie soup before my meal.  It fills me up and there are some great ones out there!

My favorite one (and I have tried quite a few!), is this ww-0-point-favorite-vegetable-soup.  I always double this recipe and freeze a few in containers to have on hand when I run out!

0 Point Favorite Vegetable Soup
1 cup diced onion

6 chicken bouillon cubes or 3 -4 teaspoons broth, seasoning mix
6 garlic cloves, minced
6 cups thinly sliced zucchini
2 cups thinly sliced carrots
1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes
3 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon basil leaves
1 teaspoon Italian spices
salt & pepper (to taste)
Tabasco (a few drops to give it a kick!)

In a large nonstick saucepan, combine onion, broth mix and garlic; cook stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent.
Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine; cover and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes.
Add 4 cups water and bring to a boil. reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook until vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes.
Using slotted spoon, remove about 2 cups of vegetables from saucepan and set aside.
In blender, in a few batches, puree remaining soup, return pureed mixture to saucepan, add reserved vegetables and heat.

This sounds delicious - the perfect light way to warm up on a cold winter's day! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'm excited to try this recipe asap!

Looks good and warm - if only the rest of my family liked tomato based soups. I might have to make this and freeze some and pull it out for myself on a single serving basis.

This is perfect soup weather. I sometimes make it and freeze individual servings to take to the office for lunch. Hmm . . . this looks good!

Mmmmm. . . . looks great! Have you been checking out the new points plus program with WW now? I'm really liking the new attitude toward things like fruits, vegetables, fiber and protein.
