Basic Fat-Burning Soup


"this is your basic lo-cal soup" "this is your basic lo-cal soup"
Number of Servings: 18


    1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
    1 1/2 c. chopped onions
    3 c. chopped cabbage
    1 c. diced carrots
    1 c. diced celery
    1 c. frozen green beans
    1 (16 oz.) can refried beans ( I like the one with jalapenos!)
    1/2 c. vinegar
    1 1/2 tsp. crushed garlic
    salt & pepper
    4-6 cups water ( enough to cover)
    Optional - a packet of stevia ( to bring down the heat of the jalapenos) =)

    Fill a large pot with the all ingredients (except the refried beans), and cover with lots of water. Bring to a boil, then turn heat to low. Simmer 30 minutes. In the last few minutes, add the refried beans, stirring in till combined.

    Note -- this soup is so versatile -- use whatever veggies you like ....fresh are better, or frozen.
    Just stick to your base ingredients. Be creative with the choice of herbs!.....whatever you like!

    My favorites: Mrs. Dash's Chipolte Seasoning, oregano, fresh basil or cilantro ( depending on the mood!), balsamic vinegar, 1 TB. homeade basil pesto.....just be creative.
