Cabbage Soup



Cabbage Soup

They say this has healing powers to cure the common cold.  I say it is a great recipe for losing weight.  You may want to call it Garden Vegetable Soup, but whatever you want to call it, it is good.  And especially good on a cold winter’s day.

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 quarts water
  • 4 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
  • 1/2 head cabbage, cored and coarsely chopped
  • 1 can sliced carrots, drained
  • 1 can green beans, drained
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, drained

In a large stockpot, heat olive oil over medium heat.  Stir in onion and garlic; cook until onion is transparent, about 5 minutes.

Stir in water, bouillon, salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil, then stir in cabbage.  Simmer until cabbage wilts, about 10 minutes.

Stir in carrots, green beans and tomatoes.  Return to a boil, then simmer 15 to 30 minutes, stirring often.

Serves 8.
