Cabbage Soup (Diet)

"Two cups of this soup provided the RDA for Vitamin A, nearly half of RDA for Calcium, Vitamin C and 25% of the RDA for Potassium. In addition, it is filled with ingredients that fight cancer, stroke and high blood pressure and lowers cholesterol levels. Add this to all the healthful vitamins, nutrients and fiber you consume with your daily eating will help you trim down fast. I usually add 3 medium cooked and chopped beets and a few parsnips (if you like them). I usually eat this for 5 days (as much as you like) and supplement it with boneless, skinless poached chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces for the protein. Remember to drink lots of water. The serving is 1 cup...however eat as much as you like."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Combine all chopped veggies in large pot or dutch oven.

Step 2

Sprinkle onion soup mix over all and add enough water to cover; stir.

Step 3

Bring to boil and simmer for 10 minutes; if you like your veggies cooked more, remember they are still cooking as the soup cools; you don't want them too soft.

Step 4

Remove from heat and let stand until ready to eat.

Step 5

I find that adding lemon juice to the soup bowl brightens the flavours and reduces the need for salt; a nice hot sauce is gooda as a condiment with a grinding of black pepper.

A very tasty and satisfying diet soup. I used red bell peppers instead of green because that is what I have on hand.

I love that this could use up my extra veggies I had in the frig...I used red peppers instead of the green and added in some basil for a slightly sweet taste...I cut the recipe down to 4 servings and plan to add in the lemon in one serving and some hot sauce in another...made for "Bill Board" tag game...

Almost any type of cabbage soup I would enjoy and this one I loved. Didnt have low sodium tomatoes on hand so used a can of regular petite diced tomatoes and a yellow and green pepper for extra color. Might add a can of great northern beans to the leftovers since I am not dieting. Versatile and delicious soup! Made and reviewed for the Pick Me! recipe tag game.

Delicious - made as directed - this was very good and a little different than other "diet" cabbage soup recipes. This make a lot and also I believe freezes well. Thanks for sharing!

The dry onion soup mix was a super seasoning for the soup...I really enjoyed it, although I didn't make it for the diet aspect, I made it because I like cabbage soup!
