vegetable soup...

2 tsp olive oil
1/2 of a small onion; diced
1 cup carrots; sliced
2 garlic cloves; minced
3 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups diced nappa cabbage
1 cup green beans; cut into 2 in. pieces
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt

Cook onions and carrots in olive oil over med high heat until onions are tender. Add garlic and cook about 30 seconds. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes.
(2 cups= 1pt)

This made the whole house smell good!! Such a perfect lunch or dinner in the Fall & Winter. It didn't make a large amount, so next time I would probably double it. I think it would be great with white or kidney beans, and/or a little pasta. Give it a try! It will warm you through and through!!
