Weight Watcher's Zero Point Italian Soup

Made this soup today in the crock pot. Sorry no picture. Could not be easier and though the recipe said 5 hours on high, mine took about 3 - 3.5 in a 6 qt crock pot. I'm finding it a tad spicy so might reduce the crushed red pepper a bit. Also, I'm thinking for lunch sometime, I could add 1/2 cup of chick peas for 1 point and this could have some filling umph to it.

10 oz spinach, baby leaves
2 medium carrot(s), chopped
2 medium celery, ribs, chopped
1 large onion(s), chopped
1 medium garlic clove(s), minced
4 cup(s) vegetable broth
28 oz canned diced tomatoes
2 piece(s) bay leaf
1 Tbsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, crushed

Throw it all in a crock pot. And cook. Makes about eight 1cup servings.

Sounds delicious, thanks for sharing the recipe! I definitely want to try this, although might add some little sausage balls or something to mine :)


I just happened upon your site looking for some veggie soup recipes. I actually made this soup last week-forgot to put in the red pepper, and it was still good. Also, I didn't do the crock pot method-didn't have time. I cooked it stove top like the traditional veggie soup recipe, and it was fine. Your idea for chick peas sounds yummy.
Good luck on your ventures!
