Crock Pot Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup

      

(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 94)

For a long time I resisted recipes for any kind of cabbage soup.

I automatically associated “cabbage soup” with the boring bland Cabbage Soup Diet recipe.

And I decided years ago that life was too short to subject myself to boring bland food in the name of weight loss ever again.

Easy, healthy and delicious, this crock pot sweet and sour cabbage soup is the opposite of bland!

It’s meatless.

Super simple to toss together.

And tastes even better when reheated.

Think of it as meatless stuffed cabbage you eat with a spoon.

Each cup of this easy, healthy and delicious crock pot sweet and sour cabbage soup has just 78 calories and 2 Weight Watchers Points Plus. And though it’s not technically simply filling (because of the brown sugar) it’s close enough for me to consider it so :-)

Enjoy!
