How To Make A Healthy, Heartwarming, Belly-Busting Vegetable Soup – It’s Good For You, Too!


I started making this soup after trying a bowl at mom’s house.  The weight loss aspect is great, but it’s actually just really good!  I’m always recommending it to friends for the flavor alone.


And whenever I feel a little lazy, I just pick up some frozen veggies to make this. It saves me a lot of time and the end result is just as delicious! I’ve seen people cringe when I’ve told them this is a Weight Watchers soup – but once they’ve had a taste, they’ve all asked for the recipe!



2 cloves garlic, minced

2 medium carrots, diced

2 small zucchini, diced

2 cups savoy cabbage, shredded

2 cups Swiss chard, chopped

2 cups cauliflower, small florets

2 cups broccoli, small florets

1 medium onion, diced

1 medium sweet red pepper, diced

1 medium rib celery, diced

2 tsp fresh thyme, chopped

6 cups Swanson’s Certified Organic Vegetarian Vegetable Broth

2 Tbsp fresh parsley or chives, chopped

1/2 tsp Morton’s Course Kosher Salt, or to taste

1/4 tsp MCormick Pure Ground Black Pepper, or to taste

2 Tbsp ReaLemon 100% Lemon Juice, optional



  1. Put garlic, vegetables, thyme and broth into a large soup pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to low and simmer, partly covered, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in parsley or chives; season to taste with salt, pepper and lemon juice.
  3. Serving size: 1 cup






Quick Tip:  If you prefer thicker soups, puree in a blender or food processor after cooking.
