I can always count on a delicious bowl of soup to help get my vegetables in. I have never been one to eat vegetables, I was beyond picky as a child and continue to be in my 40’s haha! But you put a tasty hot bowl of soup in front of me, especially on a bitter cold day and regardless of it being packed with veggies, I’ll eat every last spoonful.. This slow cooker cabbage roll soup was simple to make and so hearty and delicious! The rice makes up most of the points for both blue & purple programs so you could always opt to leave it out. Makes 10 heaping 1 cup servings, 2SP green, 1SP blue and if you use brown rice 0SP purple.

- 1 cup diced onion
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1 cup chopped peppers I used red & green
