Hamburger Minestrone Soup (South Beach Diet)

Servings: 10-12

1 lb extra lean ground beef (less than 10% fat)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 quart reduced-sodium fat-free beef broth
6 cups water
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice, undrained (no sugar added)
2 cups finely shredded cabbage (I use bagged coleslaw salad mix to save time)
2 stalks celery, diced
1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained (or canneloni or great northern beans, no sugar added)
2 tablespoons italian seasoning
1 -2 garlic clove, minced
salt & pepper
parmesan cheese, for garnish

1 Brown beef over medium heat in a 6-quart soup pot and drain (rinse in hot water, drain, and return to pot, if desired).
2 Add onion and garlic. Cook until onion is tender.
3 Add remaining ingredients (except cheese) and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
4 Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
5 Serve with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top, if desired.
