LOW CALORIE CABBAGE SOUP


CABBAGE SOUP - 34 CALORIES PER CUP
At only 34 calories per cup, this allows you leeway to enjoy some
other things you normally couldn't eat on a set diet for weight loss.
If you can eliminate most starchy foods or carbohydrate foods, you
will lose weight more quickly.  You can even have broiled fish,
chicken or steak with this soup and still lose weight, but you will
lose faster if you eat NO starches or sugar foods.


1   large head green cabbage, cored and chopped
8   very large onions, peeled and chopped
1   entire large stalk celery, sliced thin
1   good size bag carrots, peeled and sliced thin
1   entire large pod garlic, peeled and sliced thin
2   cans cut green beans (or 1 can green beans and
1   can yellow wax beans)
1   can Hunts (28 oz) CRUSHED tomatoes
1   large can tomato juice (or V-8 juice)
1   envelope Lipton's dry onion soup mix
4   packets low sodium beef bouillon powder
(this dissolves instantly)
Salt & pepper to taste
About 1/2 cup dried parsley
Water

In one large soup pot, place all the prepared cabbage, onions,
celery and carrots; cover with water; bring to boil and then reduce
heat and cook until water is reduced about half way.  Drain the liquid
from the can beans into the soup pot and while the veggies are
cooking, check over each green bean for any bad spots, then cut each
one in half.  When the veggies are tender, add the green beans and all
other ingredients.  You may want to adjust the seasonings.  Simmer on
low for about an hour to blend the flavors and enjoy!
