I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Cabbage Soup

My daughter Autumn and my son Brandon love this soup. Easy to make, healthy, and warms you up on a cool day.  This is around 130 calories.  So good for such a small amount of calories.


CABBAGE SOUP
(serves 8)

Ingredients:
*3 tablespoons olive oil
*2 garlic cloves, chopped small
*1 small yellow onion, chopped
*2 carrots, peeled, and sliced thin
*2 celery stalks, sliced thin
*6 cups chicken stock
*1 teaspoon oregano
*1 teaspoon basil
*1 teaspoon chicken granules 
*1 teaspoon salt
*1/2 teaspoon black pepper
*1/2 head of cabbage, cored and coarsely chopped
*1 quart stewed tomatoes

Directions:
~In a large stockpot, heat olive oil over medium heat.
~Stir in onion, garlic, carrots, & celery.
~Cook until onion is transparent, about 5 minutes.
~Stir in chicken stock, oregano, basil, chicken granules, salt & pepper.
~Bring to a boil, then stir in cabbage.
~Simmer until cabbage wilts, about 12 minutes.
~Stir in the stewed tomatoes, and bring back to a boil.
~Reduce heat and simmer for 30-40 minutes.

Variation:
-Substitute chicken stock for vegetable stock. (I think it tastes much better with the chicken stock, but that's just my opinion)
