INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 2 ribs celery, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes, with juices
  • 1 head small green or Savoy cabbage
  • 2 sprigs fresh oregano (Or 1 tsp dried)
  • 6 cups broth

Instructions

In a large soup pot, heat oil on medium high. When warm, add onion and sauté until beginning to brown and become translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add carrots, celery, garlic, and tomatoes. Sauté until slightly softened, about 3-5 minutes.

Add cabbage and oregano, along with salt and pepper if desired. Add broth and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer and cook until vegetables have softened, about 20 minutes.

Notes

Though tasty on it's own, this nutritional soup makes a great jumping point for all sorts of recipes. Add jalapeño, cilantro, and lime for a Mexican twist, or spicy kielbasa sausage and potatoes for a heartier version.
