Cabbage, Tomato, Hamburger Soup

This is a Weight Watchers recipe from way, way back. I think it was from cave man days actually. Well maybe 30 or 35 years ago. I do not know what it is about this recipe but it just seems to melt the weight off you. Probably just my imagination.

So... is the soup tasty, or just weight-reducing?

Well if you like tomato it is pretty good. I do not tend to think of it as diet food at all.
