Dev's Cold Weather Soup

I don't have a picture - but here's the soup that I made last week and ended up eating all  week long....and I STILL have leftovers.  They are currently in the freezer awaiting the next time I think I'm in the mood for soup. Essentially, this came about because I had bags of veggies in my fridge that were on the verge of going bad.

Dev's Cold Weather Soup:
1 onion, chopped
1/2 bag of baby carrots
2-3 stalks of celery, chopped
1 bag of chopped cabbage (coleslaw mix)
1 bag of broccoli slaw
1 can diced tomatoes, with juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch mix
1 cup of lentils
enough water to fill the pot
chicken bouillon to taste

Cook the onion until translucent.  Add the remainder of the ingredients and simmer.  (PS - How easy is that??)

I calculated the WW Pts based on 8 servings - but like I said......I ate on this all week and still had leftovers, so I know there's more than 8 servings there.

I like to eat this w/ 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese & a few spots of sriracha sauce.

Yum! Sounds delicious and nutritious. I make soup with random veggies in my fridge, too! Great idea adding lentils to your soup. Adds fiber and some protein that you need. Oooo sriracha sauce! I never thought of adding a few dashes of that to soup! I even have a bottle in the fridge, but I'll have to see if the ingredients are suitable for my detox. Otherwise, I'll keep it mind for when this is over.

Christine - you're doing great on the detox. Maybe someday I could do it, but it's not something I could even contemplate right now :-)
