Weight Watchers Vegetable Soup Recipe

Those of us who have been members of Weight Watchers for years know that a “free” vegetable soup, the old Weight Watchers cabbage soup recipe as many of us refer to it, has been part of the program for as long as most of us can remember. This delicious Weight Watchers soup recipe has stood the test of time because its rich and filling with zero points.

I’ve heard this soup called Weight Watchers Free Vegetable Soup, WW Detox Soup, WW Instant Pot Free Soup, or Cabbage soup, but they are all a similar concept – tons of fresh vegetables and spices cooked together with vegetable broth to bring about a delicious flavor.

These days, with MyWW Green, Blue, and Purple plans, WW allows members to have 100, 200 or 300 zero point foods, which is amazing! While these foods still do have calories, knowing they are “free” encourages members to eat them on a regular basis.

This stove top or Instant Pot vegetable soup is a great go-to recipe because with all the vegetables, it’s a great Instant Pot detox soup recipe. Low in calories, this is a great choice for days when you need a re-start after overeating or indulging in rich foods.

This Weight Watchers cabbage soup recipe is also good for times when you want to keep your points low to save them for a bigger meal later in the day or week.

I like to eat this soup to make my lunches more satisfying, or I enjoy a bowl mid-afternoon when I’m having one of those hungry days.

How to Make WW Vegetable Soup in Your Instant Pot

Whether you are like me and have been making Zero Point Vegetable Soup Recipe for years or this recipe is new to you, either way you’ll save time when you make it in your Instant Pot.

Cooking this hearty vegetable soup takes just minutes with Instant Pot pressure cooking – 4 minutes to cook and 5 minutes to natural release. Give yourself enough time to chop all those delicious vegetables and the machine will take a bit of extra time to come to pressure, but all of this is worth it for the end result.

Tips for Making WW Zero Point Cabbage Soup

Here are tips for making this delicious, healthy soup.

  • This does have small amount of olive oil, but spread throughout the recipe the points are still zero per serving. You can use Pam cooking spray or even water if you prefer in order to saute vegetables.
  • You can use vegetable, chicken, or beef broth in this cabbage soup. I like the rich taste of beef broth the best, but all work well. Many people use a combination of chicken and beef broth to give this an extra-rich flavor.
  • This soup can be cooked on the stove top. Follow the same directions and allow to simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Feel free to change up vegetables according to your preferences.
