Weight Watchers Cabbage Soup

The BEST Cabbage Soup

This is by far the BEST Weight Watchers cabbage soup you’ll ever have! This easy soup recipe is filled with every vegetable I could think of plus I added ground turkey to make it even heartier. Two cups of this hearty soup is only 0/1 POINT! (If you’re not on WW – it means it’s super healthy!!!) I’ve been astounded at how much I enjoyed all of these leftovers!

Notes

Can cabbage soup be frozen?

Yup! There’s no pasta or dairy – so it freezes very well! This recipe makes six 2-cup servings (i.e. A LOT OF DAMN SOUP) – but because it freezes so well – I was thrilled to keep eating it. The next week, I had a bowl every day and even on day 5 was still excited about it! I always use airtight glass containers for all my leftovers. You could also pour (once cooled) this comforting soup into ziploc bags and lay them flat in the freezer. This will ensure they take up less space.

Can cabbage soup be made in the crock pot or slow cooker?

Yup! After you've browned the turkey - you can transfer everything to the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 hours. I would still reserve the zucchini and add in the last 30-60 minutes so it doesn't just disintegrate.

How do you reheat cabbage soup?

To stay super simple, the microwave truly is the best for 1-2 helpings. But if you have a larger bowl of leftovers, reheating over medium heat on the stove top is great too. You can always add more broth, water or veggies if you'd like too! (Great way to use up leftovers!)
