Zero Point Cabbage Soup | Weight Watchers (1)

Packed full of fresh vegetables, it is a perfect zero point soup recipe for those days when you want to save up Weight Watchers Smart Points for a special occasion.

If, like me, you automatically think of the Cabbage Soup Diet when you hear the words 'cabbage soup', don't let that put you off!

Unlike some of the early Cabbage Soup recipes, this soup is tasty, it is fresh and it is packed full of crunchy fresh vegetables.

The base is made with a salty beef stock but with the addition of a little sweet tomato paste, you get a real depth to the flavour.

No boiled cabbage water soup here!

No - this Cabbage Soup is different! It is a filling and full flavoured soup that is full of goodness and is Zero Smart Points! Woo Hoo 😀

It can be eaten with a slice or two ofLow Point Bread for a low point lunch or alternatively, can be eaten between meals if you need to keep those hunger pangs at bay!

Which stock can I use in this Cabbage Soup recipe

I tend to use stock made up with a stock / bouillon cube for this recipe - partly because it is cheaper to do so. However, you could use fresh stock instead. One stock cube / bouillon cube works out at 1 Smart Point per cube and I use 1 cube in this recipe.

Many supermarket brought beef stocks also work out at 1 Smart Point for 700 ml but just make sure that you check the nutritional information before using.

Can I use Vegetable Stock / Chicken Stock

Of course!

I do prefer to use beef stock in this recipe but if you are wanting to make a vegetarian Cabbage Soup then vegetable bouillon is a good alternative.

What cabbage should I use

There are lots of varieties of cabbage out there and I have tried a few different kinds when making this soup. At this time of the year (May) I use spring cabbage as they are abundant. However, I have also used white cabbage and once or twice, savoy cabbage.

I haven't used red cabbage as I think I'd be put off by the end colour but thats obviously a personal preference!

How long will it last in the fridge

This soup will last for up to 3 days in the fridge. If you don't think that you would finish it within that time, I would suggest that you freeze it in single portion bags.

Can I freeze Cabbage Soup

Yes! This Cabbage Soup freezes well. But do make sure that you chill it completely before portioning it up and freezing it.

I find these reusable silicone bags perfect for this purpose. When you want a serving of soup, just pull a bag out of the freezer, defrost, reheat and serve!
