Use this easy weight loss vegetable soup recipe as your secret weapon to help shed those unwanted pounds. Make a pot to keep on hand for lunches and snacks.
Once or twice every year, I make up my mind that not only do I need to eat healthier, but I also need to lose a few, unwanted pounds. When I’m in that mode, some days it’s fairly easy, while other days it is next to impossible. The one thing that helps me the most is having healthy choices on hand. Clearly this is a no-brainer, but nevertheless, many times I fail at this very simple thing. When I go to the grocery store, I stock up on fruits and vegetables, plus a few other items that hopefully will help me get through the day. I also make this easy weight loss vegetable soup recipe.

 

Easy Weight Loss Vegetable Soup Recipe Tips

  • The chopping step when making this weight loss vegetable soup only takes a few minutes. I don’t mind chopping…I actually think it’s very therapeutic. Chopping included, you can have the soup simmering on the stove in about 20 minutes.
  • The total calories are calculated in the printable recipe card below. One serving of this delicious soup is under 100 calories! If you left out the olive oil and used nonstick spray, the calorie count would be even less.

Of course, like any soup recipe, you can add your favorite vegetables and leave out what you don’t like. Many recipes include cabbage, which I cannot eat, so I left that out. I don’t include anything from the squash family because those tend to get mushy. Kale seems to be very popular right now, so that would be a good addition.

My “healthy eating” plan consists of having a cup of soup for lunch, along with some fruit. If I feel the need for protein, I add cottage cheese, yogurt, or a slice of turkey. I love to walk outside, so weather permitting, I try to work that into my day as well.

I do know how to eat healthy…in fact I am very good at it. My issue is actually making the choice to eat the healthy food over the not-so-healthy food. That is my constant struggle.

  1. Ann
    I made this amazing delicious soup today for my husband and I. It is truly a keeper.
    So good, and a great way to get your veggies in especially winter time with slim pickings at the store.
    Thank you for sharing!

  2. 5 stars
    Hi there, I started in October of 2019 with an effort to eat healthier. I make soup in batches that I freeze in portions, so I always have them on hand for lunch. I vary the vegetables in each batch. Cabbage is a big “filler”. I vary the type of broth I use. When I defrost and heat for my lunch I add in leftover beggies from dinner the night before. This approach has been a lifesaver for me. I have lost some pounds. Just take it a day at a time. Gradual changes can result in significant progress. Great recipe!

  3. I make cream of potato and chicken noodle soup often but I will be good to add vegetable to my menu rotation. This sounds like a delicious, health soup. I plan to try it this week.

  4. If you really want to make this a vegetable soup switch out the chicken broth for flavorful low sodium vegetable broth!

    1. My thought exactly….my husband and I are eating vegan. We started in November of 202😤. I don’t like to put in the cabbage either…tooo upsetting for my tummy. I love this soup and could eat it everyday!!

  5. Hi Ann,
    Just wanted you to know I’ve made your vegetable soup recipe twice now. I’ve got a batch simmering on my stove right now. It’s delicious, very easy to put together, and nutritious! Thanks for sharing this delicious winter recipe! I’m adding it to my favorites. :)

  6. Patricia Robertson says:

    This soup is absolutely delicious! It was quick to assemble, with the help of my trusty cuisinart food processor. The recipe makes quite a bit, so I froze lunch sized containers to enjoy all winter.

  7. Dee Brownfield says:

    Hi Ann!!! Just finished making this soup …. oh, is it good!!!! Thank you so much for the recipe!! It’s easy … it’s fast … and it’s done!!! Yum!

  8. This is excellent as written or with these additions: 3 garlic cloves: 1 sliced, 2 pressed, 1 cup of thin shred cabbage, 1 cup of diced potato and a touch of Lowery’s garlic salt. B/c of the additions I made, next time I will add an additional can of tomatoes and/or increase the V8/tomato juice. I can also see taking some of this soup and adding rinsed beans of any sort and/or poached chicken when reheating the soup for a lunch variation. It is so delicious and a very easy recipe with tons of potential for personal modifications.

  9. Nita Roush says:

    Ann, my hubby has Alzheimer’s and I get up early every morning.
    I’m deaf and don’t watch TV. I sit with him and read your blog and a few others. You are my coffee friend in the morning. Thank you for the cake ideas. An elderly lady who made the best cakes told me about using butter and milk years ago. My son was about 8 and after a birthday party told me the strawberry birthday cake was dry because the other mom didn’t use milk. It’s a favorite memory.

  10. I too would like to loose a few pounds. I’m also trying hard to keep my blood pressure down so canned soup isn’t a good choice for me. I’m going to buy a sweet potato and look forward to trying your vegetable soup recipe. If it tastes as good as it looks it will be in my regular on my menus. Sharon

    1. Dee Brownfield says:

      Hi Sharon! I too am trying to shed a few pounds and thought the same way as you! I made this soup yesterday and it is pretty awesome!! I did not miss not having any meat in it! (just the chicken broth) I always felt I needed a lot of stew meat in my veggie soup – nope! don’t need any! I will put a cup of cabbage in the next batch! I think you will like it! Here’s to us on our weight loss attempts!
      Be Blessed!

  11. This soup is wonderful! I just finished a bowl. It is so forgiving with the ingredients. I used Italian seasoned diced tomatoes, didn’t have sweet potato so I used a Yukon Gold potato, had V8 juice instead of tomato juice and threw in cabbage. I also used some leftover green beans from dinner last night and then included all the rest of the vegetables listed. I put some rotisserie chicken chopped up in the bottom of my soup mug and put the hot soup over top. Very tasty and satisfying! Thanks so much for this recipe. I’m hoping it will help me lose some weight!

  12. This soup looks yummy! We always have frozen peas and corn, and they make a quick colorful addition to most soups. I throw a few frozen peas in the bottom of my bowl/cup and add my hot soup on top of them, and by the time I sit down and am ready to eat the peas are cooked and a pretty color of green.

  13. I am a soup girl and this sounds yummy.Thanks for the recipe Ann.

  14. The title of this soup is what drew me to the recipe but it would be a shame if the name prevents others from trying. THIS SOUP IS DELICIOUS. I have made a lot of veggie soups in my life but this is like magic and the only one I make now. It is very forgiving with ingredients, I don’t usually have green beans so I just throw in a bunch of chopped kale. But the key of course is to not over cook.
    In a dinner pinch I wil pull out a tub of frozen WLV soup, toss in a few grains or beans or pastas and some protein (seriously any protein) and dinner is deliciously done.
    Thank you for this.

  15. Tracy Gonzales-Box says:

    I’m grateful for you and your site and I want to THANK YOU for that. I’m going to be making the soup today 😊 as my restraint through the holidays was not good hahaha. Thanks again for being you ❤️
    Tracy…….a sister in Christ

  16. Betty Lou says:

    Good old vegetable soup, so tasty and filling, thank you for the reminder. I am anxious to try your recipe as I have always used a variation of a weight watchers recipe. I have never use sweet potato in my soup but it should be very good. Off to the store I go for the ingredients. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

  17. Ann,
    Snack on raw carrots…in addition to being healthful, they’re sweet, crunchy and it takes a while to finish one! Very satisfying when your mind is set on losing weight. Looking forward to trying your soup recipe!

  18. This looks like a tasty and easy soup recipe. I’m interested in your Staub pot. How do you like it? Do you know where they are manufactured? Thanks!

  19. Good Morning Ann. I enjoy your blog so very much….practical, beautiful, insightful.
    I couldn’t agree more with you. I’m pretty certain that we are all quite expert at eating well and healthy, being women ‘of a certain age’ and having raised families! The constant struggle is to make those good choices over the less good. Thank you for the encouragement and sharing the journey. I’m going to try your yummy soup!
    Blessings on your day, Friend.

  20. Your soup sounds great. I’ve had tremendous success with the new WW program. Their online program and app were a game changer for me. I lost 18# and it wasn’t that difficult. My biggest enemy is sweets so it got me off that need to have them every night.

  21. I’m going to try this with the addition of kale.

  22. Thanks for the recipe. Like you, I know HOW to eat healthy but working full time it is difficult to follow through. A pot if this is a great idea to come home to 😊

  23. So good! I used what I had on hand: turkey broth in the freezer from Thanksgiving, tomato sauce rather than tomato juice, yukon gold rather than sweet potato and added some shredded red cabbage that needed to be used up. Delish! Thanks.

  24. Anne Tuttle says:

    Anne, this is a wonderful recipe! I made it for Ash Wednesday supper and served it with fresh baked bread. I added some zucchini and a half cup elbow macaroni to make it a more filling meal for my husband, who really hates meatless meals. It was tasty and delicious, and he loved it!

  25. Irene Kimball says:

    Hi Anne,
    Made this soup today. As we say in New England, “wicked good”. I did ablib just a little. I added baby leaf spinach and since I didn’t have a sweet potato I used a yellow (not “diet correct”, I know). I think kale could also be added for more nutrients. I am thinking the next time I make this I will double batch and freeze one batch in quart size ziplocks to pull out on a day I need some comfort food. Good directions and a really good product. Thanks.

  26. Mary Whitfield says:

    Very good recipe. I made it exactly as the recipe states. My husband loves it. He’s very picky so it’s good to serve him a meal he enjoys. Thanks Ann!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Thank you so much for letting me know! I have a picky husband too. :)

  27. Thx so much for the recipe! I made it yesterday and loved it! I found it very satisfying plus I love veggies! I added a little garlic and used V-8 juice as that is what I had and it was great! I also used low sodium chicken broth. It was a wonderful way to kick start my diet and plan on having it for lunch like you do. Very easy to make and very good! Thx so much for sharing. If you have any more diet recipes to share, I would love to see them!

  28. So delicious and love the calorie count! Finally having some cool weather in SoCal and your recipe was in perfect timing. I will def make again. Thanks Ann!

  29. Hi Ann, the soup sounds and looks so good, will make some this week. One thing I love about your recipe posts is the way you style them for photographing. You have a knack for making the most simple things look pretty and appealing. You have inspired me to up my game in that department. Thank you!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Thank you so much Martha…your comment made my day. :)

  30. I’ve done the veggie soup every day for two months. I start it in large Dutch oven searing half chuck roast as usual cooking it for several hours. Add preheated water. Then shred it. Add two large cans diced tomatoes. The veggies (lots of veggies) are a bag of crinkle cut carrots, celery, onion, frozen lady peas, and lots of cut cabbage. As soup broth diminishes as we eat it, I add V-8 or beef broth. My husband has dropped 30 lbs. We have cut out all bread and sweets. Eat a lettuce-wrapped chicken deli roll up with it for lunch. One Baby Bel cheese round. We split a meal when dining out with an extra salad. Portion control is a biggie. This works!!! Fruit for snacks.

  31. Sounds Delicious. I will try it. Thanks for sharing

  32. If one were feeling particularly lazy, or rushed or whatever you could use frozen veggies. I’ve done something similar with Ro-Tel for plain tomatoes, a nice spicy kick for cold days.

  33. Marilyn Craighead says:

    I bought ingredients today for your soup recipe. Looking forward to enjoying it on our upcoming cold and snowy Saturday!

    Thank you!
    Marilyn

  34. What a tasty recipe. I will try it without the potatoes. Thank you for sharing it with us. Smiles

  35. You can sauté veggie in veggie broth ( hardly any calories for that ) . I do it all the time , I never use oil 😊

    1. I never use oil either ! I just wish restaurants would do that too ! The fat you eat is the FAT you wear 😉

  36. I just printed the recipe, anxious to try on this snowy weekend, it’s very timely because I got on the scale today and said OMG so thank you.

  37. Haha! I’m sitting at my weekly Weight Watchers meeting and took a look at your blog waiting for the meeting to at start. This is a WW-friendly soup. I will make this soon. Thanks, Ann.

  38. Norma Rolader says:

    Yummy will have to try this soup Thank you

  39. Christine says:

    You can just about smell the goodness from the picture ! Love spending a few minutes at your site everyday. Like a good friend , you can always rely on , to bring about that comfy feeling . Thank you .

  40. Julie Briones says:

    You go, Ann… I’m with you. I know what to do, it’s just difficult to make the right choices. A friend and I have been doing a particular system, and we have been tracking through the app that comes with it, then sending a screen shot of our day’s eating to each other each night, for added accountability. I’ve lost 25 pounds in about 5 months. :-) 25 more to go! Praying for you as we travel this journey!

  41. I also struggle with weight, the older you get, the harder it is to loose those few pounds.I am a soup lover too,yours looks yummy.Good luck on your quest !

  42. Best of Luck, Ann! My Weight Watchers instructor always said it’s all above the neck: (1) having the desire to lose and (2) what you put into your mouth! It’s SO true!

  43. Thank you for sharing your recipe. My husband and I are on a diet. We both like vegetable soup. This is a different one so will try it.

  44. Lisa Johnson says:

    Sounds fantastic! Making some soon-

  45. Lisa Taylor says:

    Looks great and will be making this weekend. Cold here, so perfect to curl up with a cup of soup and a good movie. Can’t wait to try it.

  46. Ann, I have the same problem with weight loss. It’s much easier to go with the not-so-good for me things to eat. I LOVE soups so I am going to try your recipe and see how it goes. Thank you for sharing.

  47. Elizabeth says:

    This is very similar to one I found on Pinterest and use regularly. It’s so tasty and filling! I like to freeze portions of this soup and a few others so I have a variety to choose from.

  48. Denise :) says:

    Taking it old school! Great recipe — have used very similar ones a number of times over the past (gasp) thirty years!! :)

  49. Well…I will put this recipe to good use!! I need to shed a pound or two…or maybe more:) I am with you; I need to be more intentional with my eating habits. Thanks for sharing, Have a blessed week.

  50. The struggle is real! Thanks for sharing this recipe. I have tried several of your recipes and they are all delicious. I really appreciate that you use ingredients that are easy to find – I’m not into the “exotic” stuff! You always provide so much inspiration! Love your blog!

  51. Going to try the soup today!

  52. Now this is something I would try. I have been sick and everyone wants to foist chicken soup on me, but sometimes the smell of the chicken makes me nauseous. And the only real benefit to soup during a cold is to make your nose run.

    This looks delicious. I wonder if it can be frozen and nuked.

  53. kathryn ripley says:

    Hi Ann. I’m 60 years old and still fight with myself to make good food choices. One would think by this time in my life I would have figured it out!! I too, know “how” to eat healthily but am easily swayed to the other side when I have a choice. Also, having a sugar addiction doesn’t help; all of this said so you know you’re not alone. Every one of your recipes that I’ve tried have been simple and delicious, thanks for the soup recipe,

  54. Kaye Browder says:

    Sounds great. Trying it today. Thank you for the recipe! Love all your articles

  55. Yummy! Thank you for the recipe!

  56. This recipe sounds perfect! I can’t wait to try it. Thanks for sharing it with all of us.

  57. I like the way you calculated the calories.

  58. Ann ur soup sounds so good I am on way to grocery to gather up supplies.cant wait. Perfect weather for vegie soup. I enjoy reading ur column and I thank you for all the ideas you give us.. stay warm and comfortable and may this lovely weather soon leave. Jackie fritz

  59. You chop things so beautifully – can I hire you to chop for me. The soup ingredients are on my today’s shopping list.

  60. Does anyone else here remember that delightful columnist Erma Bombeck? She claimed that in her adult life she had lost 782 pounds and by rights she should have been hanging from someone’s charm bracelet.

    Sigh…..

  61. Hi, Ann.
    You have the key to maintaining a healthy weight. I wait until too many pounds have come on me and the next it’s harder to lose.
    I’ve recently started to work out as well. Although difficult at my age, I’m proud of being off the couch.
    Your blog is always inspiring and it is probably the only one I read fully. Thank-you, Robbin

  62. Ann I also want to say this is my absolute favorite blog. You share just the right things and have become a dear friend. Always look forward to seeing you pop up in my email.

    Good luck with the pounds

  63. Inspiration. Thanks Ann. We all need this time of year. Between cold weather and so much flu around this soup will hit the spot. I’m going to make this weekend. I may add a little dry ranch dressing.

  64. I have the same basic vegetable soup currently in my frig. Love being able to *throw in* whatever I have on hand. Kale is an excellent addition, and I always add a can of cannellini beans for a little protein. Good luck with the extra few pounds; it’s a struggle for me!

  65. Love veggie soup, I think you might have forgotten to list can of tomatoes in directions..

  66. Lauren Taylor says:

    Thanks, Ann
    This is much like the soup my Grandmother made me, when she said..”honey, I think you need to lose a little, just so your dimples show better” . (LOL) It was nearly the same, except she added cabbage and a splash of tabasco. I loved it and used it over and over through the years when the “dimples” were hiding! I love your blog and read it everything and enjoy it so much. Thank you for sharing and being so genuine. It is refreshing to find a blog that is fun, honest, pretty, simple and welcoming.

  67. Penny at Enjoying The Simple Things says:

    Sounds like a great soup! I would add the kale for sure.

    1. Barbara Lenihan says:

      Being a vegetarian, soup sounds great. I will substitute with veggie broth. Thank you!
