Comments
When I did Weight Watchers a few years ago, I got this recipe. It is really yummy and easy to customize. For instance, I don't like zucchini, so I just left that out and put in some broccoli instead. As long as you stick with non-starchy vegetables, it shouldn't affect the low-calorie aspect. At that time, this soup was shown as 0 points, meaning I could have it whenever I wanted! I made huge pots of it, and just warmed up a bowl at a time as a meal, or as a side to help fill up with something else yummy, etc. Even my then-husband, who definitely did not need to diet, loved this soup.
