Miracle Soup

This recipe made the round of the women, and some of the men, in the office where I work, I was intrigued, not because I really wanted to lose weight, but whether it was true that you could lose weight with it. According to the recipe information, This soup can be eaten as often and as much as you wish. Whenever you feel hungry, just eat as much soup as possible. This soup produces no calories. The more you eat, the faster you lose weight. It didn't help me, or really anyone at the office, lose weight, really, how could it produce no calories, that would mean that you wouldn't get the nutrition necessary to live, you'd starve to death!, and most of those concerned about the extra pounds, graduated to the next miracle diet, namely the high protein, low carb diet, which, while good for immediate gain, is not good over a long while, it is hard on the body to consume lots of protein. Now, I think this recipe tastes pretty good on its own, a good cabbage soup, so enjoy it for that, at least. If it helps in getting more vegetables in your diet, that's also good.

Miracle Soup
6 large onions
3 cans tomatoes (28 oz.)
1 medium cabbage
2 envelopes onion soup mix
1 celery stalk
2 green peppers
4 carrots
season to taste (salt, pepper, dried herbs in bouquet garni)

Cut vegetables into pieces and then place vegetables into boiling water for one hour. Add soya sauce if you wish.
