It's actually a great way use of those veggies that are languishing in your fridge crisper.
This recipe is an easy way how to cook cabbage and end up with a soup that satisfies. The recipe below makes enough for 4 people, but I like to double the recipe so that there are leftovers for the next day.
The amounts of vegetables can vary - a bit more of this and a little less of that. This can be a vegetarian/vegan dish, or you can always add some smoked sausage or wieners if you wish.
Soup making is very forgiving. Quantities don't really matter. Add more or less of anything! Keep tasting as you go along, and you'll soon master the soup-making skill! Really!
In the photo of the soup above, I browned a pound of lean ground beef along with the onions and cabbage in some olive oil. Once they were nicely browned, I added everything else and continued with the recipe.
The result? A wonderful broth and a marvelous flavor. Add vinegar and freshly ground black pepper at the end. WUNDERBAR!
Here I'm cooking a HUGE pot full of potato and cabbage soup. Love having leftovers so we can enjoy this for several days. Sometimes I'll add some kale to the leftovers and make a whole new soup!
You can use either a green cabbage or savoy cabbage. The savoy cabbage is a milder tasting cabbage, so it's really great for those who really don't like cabbage that much. But since cabbage is so healthy, give it a try. You'll find this is a great "comfort" soup. Make it vegan or add meat.
Filling and satisfying, it's one that I make often, not just for family, but guests as well. I think you'll like it as well.
