This soup is so super yummy! Hubby has to lose a little bit of weight for a PT test coming up soon so we’re eating very light the next few days. Also, we LOVE soup! But, lately I’ve been reading more about sodium and how bad it really is for you. That made me look at sodium levels in canned soups. OH MY! In one can there was more sodium than you should get ALL DAY! So I’m really going to try and make more soup for us instead of relying on canned junk! My sister-in-law made this coup when we visited a few weeks ago. It’s great and very low in calories and way high in goodness! So here is the recipe!

2/3 cup sliced carrots

1/2 cup diced onion

2 garlic cloves, minced

3 cups fat-free broth (beef, chicken, or veggie)

1 1/2 cups diced green cabbage

1/2 cup green breans

1 tbsp tomato paste

1/2 tsp dried basil

1/4 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup diced zucchini


In a large saucepan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, saute carrots, onions, and garlic over low heat for about 5 minutes. Add broth, cabbage, green beans, tomato paste, basil, oregano, and salt, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover, and simmer for around 15 minutes or until beans are tender. Lastly, stir in the zucchini and continue to heat soup 3-4 minutes.

Yeah, that’s it! Enjoy!
