Diet Cabbage Soup. . .AKA. . .Dolly Parton Soup

We have been on an 'eating binge' since Thanksgiving. . .and this year I didn't make the
same old New Year's Resolution to lose 10+lbs. . . .after all
Why set myself up for failure again in 2010!
But we are making a conscious effort and going to start out with this
Diet Cabbage Soup. . .AKA. . .Dolly Parton Diet Soup
 So today on 'Foodie Friday' I'm sharing this recipe in case anyone else

is interested in 'jump starting' their diets at the beginning of 2010!

1 head cabbage shredded or chopped
2 large onions, chopped
2 cans peeled and chopped tomatoes
2 green peppers
4 stalks of celery
1-2 pkg. Lipton soup mix (either onion or I like beef)
black pepper (a pinch)
any fresh herbs of your choice, chopped
6 carrots, sliced
green beans
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar (optional)
I always add a can of V-8 for flavor
Put all the vegetables in a big pot and cover, bring to boil, stir in soup mix and
boil gently for 10 minutes, then cover and simmer until all the veggies are tender!
Stir in the black pepper and herbs last, save some for garnish if you like
You can look up this soup online and see how it is suggested to be used as a Diet Soup.
You can eat as much of this as you like, drinking lots of water, it is used in a 7 day
diet plan!
See the recipe for 'killer cookies' and other delicious entries which I have copied

 and solemnly vowed to try at some later date!
on the host blog site


  1. This looks tasty. The photo is great!

  2. I would like to know if this really works for you. I have heard about it but never tried it. I, too am trying to diet off those chocolates and goodies. I don't do very well on diets so I am working very hard this time around. Good luck to you too!

  3. This soup has gorgeous color. Please let us know if this works.

  4. I made some it was great you can eat all you want it has a great flavor! I put it up in jars and canned it makes a great soup starter also.
