Where Would You Love to Cook Today?

Today I am staying Home! 
Yes this is my kitchen, Welcome!
 And about the time I decided to make this my post  
we already started getting ready, 
as you can see by all the pans out on the counter. 

At my house there never seems to be enough chairs...
So you will often see a chair from the dining room or my sewing room 
in the kitchen. I really should get a bigger table with  more
Well... since we start already I guess i should share what we are making...

You can eat as much of this soup as you want 
and are supposed to loose 10 lbs in a week. It is like a cleansing diet. 
The soup is awesome, my Grandson Ryan ate 3 bowls yesterday!

6 large green onions (also called “spring” onions)
2 green peppers
1 or 2 cans of tomatoes (diced or whole)
3 carrots
1 container (10 oz. or so) mushrooms
1 bunch of celery
half a head of cabbage
1 package spice only soup mix ( Liptons is a good choice)
1 or 2 cubes of bouillon (optional)
1 48oz can Low Sodium V8 juice (optional)
Season to taste with pepper, parsley, curry, garlic powder, etc. (Little to NO SALT!)
I add Okra and mixed frozen squash and Zuccinni you can add any veggie except corn.

Slice green onions, put in a pot on medium heat and start to sauté with cooking spray. Do this until the onions are whiter/clearer in color (about 4-6 minutes).
Cut green pepper stem end off, then cut pepper in half to take out the seeds and membrane. Cut the green pepper into bite size pieces and add to pot.
Take the outer leafs layers off the cabbage, cut into bite size pieces, add to pot.
Clean carrots, mushrooms, and celery, cut into bite size pieces and toss them in. Add tomatoes now, too.
If you would like a spicy soup, add a small amount of curry or cayenne pepper now.
For seasonings, you can use a spice soup packet of your choice (no noodles!) or use beef or chicken bouillon cubes. These cubes are optional, and you can add spices you like instead (make sure not to add much salt, if any at all).
Use about 12 cups of water (or 8 cups and the 48 oz of Low Sodium V8 juice), cover and put heat on low. Let soup simmer for a long time – about 2 hours or until vegetables are tender.

This is a diet soup,  and I think you are suppose to eat it for 7 days straight and lose weight, but we love the soup. So if we lose weight even better, but it sure is a Yummy soup. We put it into freezer containers and that way we have soup on the go for work. Try it you will love it!

Thanks for stopping by my Kitchen today!

Jackson's says Its the most delicious Soup ever!
