WHAT GOES WITH THIS RECIPE

Swaps. Adds. Toppers

Vegetable Swaps & Adds

Instead of cabbage, add fresh or frozen whole or cut green beans. You could also add the green beans along with yellow summer squash, parsnips, a few small cut-up potatoes, corn, butternut squash, bagged slaw mix, fresh spinach, and some minced up jalapenos. Feel free to use frozen or canned veggies…Tip: if using canned veggies, please take the salt content into account.

Protein Adds

If you want to add some protein for a little more yum then by all means go for it! I like to think of adding extras as kind of a “build your own” soup. Personally, I love taco meat in this soup…leftover or prepared fresh. Turkey taco meat is so good in this and a little less diet offensive. Black, Pinto, or any of your favorite beans. Leftover Ham and Beans from my recipe are the best when added to your bowl. Cut-up spicy Simple Chicken Tenders are also a favorite and would still be zero Weight Watcher points.

Toppers

My all-time favorite soup topper is those irresistible French Fried Onions in a can! Personally, I could eat the whole can but a few tablespoons satisfy my onion crunch craving. Saltines, cheese (any kind), and my delicious Skillet Corn Bread (my true favorite) can’t be beat for toppers.

P.S….I’ve also been known to put a wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese in a hot bowl of this veggie soup. It melts fast, adds some richness, and is only 1 Weight Watcher point…it well worth the extra point!!

KITCHEN GADGETS AND STORE BOUGHT STUFF

VEGETABLE CABBAGE SOUP STORAGE

This soup will keep in the refrigerator for about a week in a glass or plastic container.

You can also freeze this soup…I would suggest you divide it into single servings in freezer bags or freezer-safe containers.

Microwave or heat up on top of the stove when ready to eat.
