Cabbage Soup

Last night, a friend of mine called from the Florida panhandle and told me about the tornado warnings and this morning I saw pictures on the news with torn up houses, overturned cars, and fallen trees.  The storm was on the way to the east coast but veered to the north following the Beltway and the Interstate 95.

After a trace of rain, I went out to the garden and picked out the largest head of cabbage.  I told my husband that I was going to make cabbage soup.  His response was a screwed up face.  Let's see!

I actually made chicken broth by cooking two legs of chicken with onions, carrots, and parsley that was going to be used for the cabbage soup.

I sauteed half an onion with store bought minced garlic and set it aside while thinly slicing some of the cabbage and added it to the soup pot with the chicken broth.

From the freezer, I had removed one of my whole tomatoes that I harvested last summer.  I cut that up and also added it to the soup.

I let the soup come to a boil and turned it down to simmer until the cabbage was soft.

In addition, I had also added some cut up carrots and I am thinking that some green peas or green beans would add greenery to the soup.  For spice, I used ground cumin and salt and pepper to taste.

I served the soup to my husband and he said it looked good and he also said that it tasted pretty good.

Keep a watchful eye on your weather and stay safe.
