Fat Buring Cabbage Soup Recipe - Tomato Based

This is one of my variations of the fat burning cabbage soup diet that was so popular years ago-  I am NOT doing a fad diet or extreme eating plan -  based on my personal knowledge and experience that is not a good way to go about losing weight, especially if you want to keep it off.  For more about what I am doing and how it's working so far, see Eating to lose.

It is not the prettiest food to photograph, but I am including a picture because I wanted to show you how loaded with veggies it is-  good and hearty.  This particular version tastes a lot like minestrone sans the noodles and beans.

For anyone who would like, we can email you the exact recipe and diet plan given at the Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital for overweight heart patients to lose weight rapidly before surgery.

I studied fitness and nutrition but I am not a doctor, dietitian or nutritionist, I am only sharing what I am eating, consult a professional before starting this or any diet.

This makes a gigantic batch- seriously, it filled 2 of the large Folgers coffee canisters and another about the same size.  One I kept in fridge, 2 went into the freezer.  You can cut it down without harm, and add or subtract the veggies you don't care for with the exception of extremely starchy vegs like corn and potatoes and the recipe should still do the trick.

Fat Burning Cabbage Soup - Tomato Based

  • 1 1/2 bags Coleslaw mix (can use shredded cabbage)
  • 1 small head Napa cabbage, sliced
  • 1 lb Carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 2/3 bunch Celery, chopped
  • 6 Green onions, sliced
  • 1 bag Snow peas, stemmed & cut into thirds
  • 3 cans Fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 can Petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 can Stewed tomatoes, break up w/back of spoon
  • 1 can Diced green chilis
  • 1 bag (frozen) Italian green beans
  • 1 bag (frozen) Tri-pepper and onion blend
  • 2 bags (frozen) Cajun style mire poix mix (the trinity)
  • To taste Beef boullion powder
  • 1 Tbsp or so Minced dried garlic
  • To taste Italian seasoning blend
Cooking Directions
  1. Dump all of the veggies into the largest stockpot you have. Add just enough water to come up to the top of the vegs, bring to a boil, turn down and simmer until vegs are cooked through- I like mine more on the crisp side and it still took a couple of hours.
  2. You can use a stick blender and process some if you want a thicker soup, or you can process all the way and make your very own version of a healthy V-8 type drink. It's actually good hot or cold. If using as a V-8 type beverage, I like to add a shot of worcestershire sauce, some celery salt and a dash of tabasco or hot sauce.
If any of you try it, let me know what you think-  or if you have come up with your own tasty versions.  I've gotten to where I really enjoy soups and would love to expand our repertoire.

    Sounds great, I love veggies! Only thing I would
    change is that I would use no canned, (maybe the tomatoes) frozen or dried veggies or spices; no need to, everything that goes into this soup is readily available fresh.
    Thank you for a great recipe, can't wait to make it.
