Description: A low-calorie vegetable soup--you can get creative and economical by adding in vegetables you have around the house!

1 package  shredded cabbage (or fresh if you want to cut it up)
8 cups  water
1/2 pound/package  raw carrots
1  red pepper
1 tbsp  pepper
1 package  Lipton Onion Soup Mix
3 cubes  Chicken Broth powder
1 tsp  olive oil (if desired)
1  onion
2 sprays  PAM olive oil
1  large soup pot
2 tbsp  parsley
1 tbsp  cilantro

Instructions: Chop up all of the vegetables to desired bite size. Spray a large soup pot with olive oil. Put chopped onion and red pepper on medium heat. Cook for 5 minutes. Take the cooked pepper/onion mix out and put it on the side. Add 8 cups of water to the pot; turn on high heat. Once it boils, add in the onion soup mix and chicken broth powder. Add the cabbage and carrots. Boil for about 7 minutes on medium heat until tender. Add the cooked pepper and onion mixture into the pot. Add olive oil if desired. Cook on low heat and add the black pepper, parsley and cilantro. **Feel free to add in cayenne pepper, red pepper, or even some hot sauce to make it spicier.

This looks like a soup my mother made for us back in the day. She did not use peppers but added in some stewed tomatoes, green beans , lima beans, green beans and potatoes to it. So good!
