Vegetable Soup Recipe – The Infamous 0 Point Value Soup

Weight Watchers Zero Point Soup

In the world of Weight Watchers, this 0 Points soup has reached celebrity status. It’s yummy, easy to make, and has ZERO POINTS!!! As a Weight Watchers member, this soup has been a staple for me. I find it best to make a large batch on the weekend, and then divide into 1 1/2 cup portions (those little plastic Ziploc containers work great for this), and store them in my fridge or freezer. This way, when I’m busy during the week, I can just whip out one of these babies on a moment’s notice!

Vegetable Soup Recipe

Ingredients:
2/3 cup sliced carrots
1/2 cup diced onions
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups fat-free broth (beef, chicken, or vegetable)
1 1/2 cups diced green cabbage
1/2 cup green beans
1 tbsp. tomato paste
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup diced zucchini

Directions:
In a large saucepan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, sauté 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 for 3-4 minutes. Enjoy!!

  1. I make this soup in a huge pot, which gets me about 10 big bowls of soup. (I use almost a whole head of cabbage, which is going to make way more soup than this recipe lists.) I add one lean sweet italian sausage in the pot and cook it first before adding anything else for a delicious flavor. The sausage is just 4 points. I omit the tomato paste, and just use the fat free, organic beef broth. I also add crushed red pepper flakes, fresh garlic and black pepper, which are all 0 points. Since the soup is listed on Weightwatchers.com as zero points, I just count this as one point for every two bowls of soup I eat. Its very satisfying.

  2. What is a serving size? 1 cup?

    Thanks for the great blog.

  3. I calculated this soup in my Recipe Builder and it is 1 point for 4-5 servings per recipe. I think this is an outdated PointsPlus recipe, and it should be taken into account that you should always enter found recipes in your Recipe Builder. ONE point per serving!

  4. what is the calorie and protein amount for this recipe? Do you have nutrition facts on this recipe? Thank you!

  5. I had printed this recipe about a week ago because it sounded really good but I just haven’t had the time to give it a try. It’s a snowy day today in Western New York so it was the perfect day to give it a try. OMG! It is one of the best soups I’ve had in a long time AND it’s so easy to make with the added bonus of 0 points. Thank you so much!

    I think you mean “famous” not “infamous.” Infamous means you have a bad reputation.

  7. Wonderful, flavorful soup. Wouldn’t think eating healthy can be so good.

  8. I'm going to try it with a can of the six mixed beans!

  9. I love this soup.. it is AWESOME! I usually make it once a week, and makes a great lunch! I also grab a handful of chopped baby spinach and add that to the soup. Lately, I've been adding a can of drained, rinsed beans (sometimes Great Northern, sometimes Kidney, one time Garbanzo beans) to the soup for added protein. That makes the soup 1 pp instead of zero, but it's worth it!
