I love soup. I can eat it every meal. One of my favorite soups to make is Cabbage soup. Since we are in the midst of a blizzard, I figure this would be a great day to make it. The recipe is very simple and I am going to share it with you.
1/2 head cabbage cut into 1 inch cube size chunks
1 can of white beans (cannellini) drained and rinsed - (or fresh beans)
1 onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
1 can of diced or stewed tomatoes with basil, garlic and onion
1 small can of tomato sauce
chicken or beef broth (1 carton)
1 tsp oregano
and any spices you like
I throw in a pinch of each thyme. garlic salt, onion powder
(any veggies you like)
Start by adding oil and garlic to a large pot
Sautee onion and garlic until translucent
Add cabbage, mix and cover for 5 minutes
Add white beans, mix and cover for another minute or 2
Add diced or stewed tomatoes, broth and tomato sauce.
season with salt, pepper (to taste) , oregano and other spices
Feel free to add water if you think it needs it.
If you want a little bite to the soup you can add a little red pepper flakes.
Cover and cook for an hour (add any veggies you would like after the first 1/2 hour of cooking)
