L's StoryI probably should post this recipe after the holidays,because who wants to think about dieting this time of year.This soup is part of a 7 day diet that was popular in the 70's,but it's good anytime,I like to make it when I want something to eat that's filling and not alot of calories.Sometimes I grate a bit of Parmesan cheese on top.
4 beef bouillon cubes
3 large onions
2 green bell peppers
whole tomatoes,large can or fresh
1/2 large head of cabbage
1/2 large bunch celery (or celery seed)
season with dry onion soup mix
1Cut vegetables in medium size pieces,cover with water,let come to a boil(add soup mix and any other herb seasonings you like now),after boilinng 10 minutes,lower heat to simmer till vegetables are tender.

I've made this soup for years. It's great to have a big pot already made. When u come home from a long day--reheat for a quick pre-meal and it keeps u from eating higher calorie foods. Soup fills you up so you eat less. I also throw in other low cal veggies, like zuchinni or squash,green beans, turnips etc. NO starchy vegs--ie corn, peas--that defeats the purpose of this soup. Sometimes I throw in some carrots (although they release sugar as they are cooked) My sister uses chicken bouillon for hers. Love this soup, it tastes so healthy!!

Does this use a packet of onion soup mix, or a partial amount? How many tomatoes?
