  • 6 cups water
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable juice
  • 3 large onions
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 6 celery stalks
  • 10 carrots
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes (no salt)
  • 4 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1T Italian Seasoning
  • 1 envelope dry onion or vegetable soup mix
  • 5 dashes hot sauce (or to taste)

Heat the water and vegetable juice over medium high heat. Chop vegetables into bite-size pieces. Toss vegetables and other ingredients into the pot. Simmer unit the vegetables are done, about 20 minutes. Serve hot with a grilled cheese sandwich and fruit.

This makes a large pot of soup which lasts in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or you can freeze into portions and date the product for later use.

This is a "negative" calorie food which means it is filling and actually requires more calories to digest than to consume. Each 1 ½ cup serving of the Miracle Soup will help you have two servings of vegetables for the day.
