DIY Cabbage Soup - Quick Vegetarian Recipe to lose weight

This Soup is a low-calorie vegetarian option, which can help be chosen if you are trying to lose weight.


2 green peppers

6 large green onions

1 to 2 cans of diced or whole tomatoes

3 carrots

1 bunch of celery

1 container (around 10 oz.) mushrooms

Half a cabbage

1 pack Lipton soup mix

1 or 2 cubes bouillon (optional)

1 48 oz can V8 juice (optional)

12 cups water if not using V8 juice


Put all the ingredients into a big pot and boil for a couple of hours.  You can sauté the onions prior to adding the other ingredients if you prefer but it isn't necessary.  There is no need to add salt as the Lipton soup mix and bouillon will give it enough salt and flavour.

Keep the soup in the fridge and this quantity should last you for the first few days of the diet.

If you find that the soup is too bland for your liking then you can add a little salt, pepper, curry, parsley, garlic or other calorie-free spices.
