My Low Cal Veggie Soup

Too much baking- Too much cooking- Too much eating...and its time for me to start making my low cal veggie soup.

This is a comfort food that is good for you and hits the spot on those really cold days (or any day!).
It is guilt free and healthy.

My Low Calorie Vegetable Soup

Carrots, raw, 2 large chopped (7-1/4" to 8-1/2" long)
Celery, raw, 4 stalk, small chopped (5" long)
Leeks, .5 cups washed well and chopped
Endive,1/2 cup, chopped
White beans, 1 cup
Red cabbage 1/4 cup
Swanson Chicken Broth 99% Fat Free, 4 cups
Water, tap, 2 cups (8 fl oz)
Mixed frozen veggies- 1 bag

Saute onion,leek,celery.carrots and any other remaining veggies in olive oil.
Add liquids -
Add remaining items (beans and barley).
Cook until slowly until all is tender-season. Enjoy!
