Zero Points Value Slow Cooker Soup

One of my favorite things to make is a good soup. Soups can climb high in sodium and calories if it uses cream base or fatty meat as the flavoring. Here is a 0 point (new and old system) soup from Weight Watchers that will add great flavor, vegetables, and fiber to any meal.

Zero POINTS® Value Slow Cooker Soup

10 oz spinach, baby leaves
2 medium carrot(s), chopped
2 medium celery, ribs, chopped
1 large onion(s), chopped
1 medium garlic clove(s), minced
4 cup(s) vegetable broth
28 oz canned diced tomatoes
2 piece(s) bay leaf
1 Tbsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, crushed

Place all ingredients in a slow cooker; cover and cook on high power for 5 hours. Remove bay leaves, stir and serve.

Yields about 1 cup per serving.
