For a cold winter evening or when you do not wish to spend too much time in the kitchen, this vegetable soup is a perfect one dish meal.

These vegetable soups provide you with the necessary nutrients , are satisfying and help you reduce weight.

You can use your favorite vegetables such as onions, beans, carrots, peas, capsicum, broccoli, zucchini, cabbage, cauliflower, pumpkin, squash etc. for this soup.

I have used a few vegetables that are easily available everywhere. You can use more cabbage if wish to reduce weight as cabbage is one of the negative calorie food.

You do not need all the above mentioned vegetables every time. You can use 3-4 of them at a time. I like to use cabbage, onions, carrots and French beans and that is what I am using in the recipe below.
