Recipe Monday: Cabbage and White Bean Soup

I had some luck with two recipes I winged this weekend. One was a crock pot pork stew-thing that could have gone pretty wrong and the other was a soup, which would have been pretty hard to screw up. Although in my wine buzz, I probably could have managed it, but I didn’t. And now I want to share it with you.

I was inspired by some so-called zero points Weight Watchers recipes I saw on pinterest, but I didn’t follow any one recipe specifically. I’ve been adding some turkey meatballs from my freezer to up the protein count. This would also be great with some boneless pork ribs thrown in.
