  • 1 head small green or Savoy cabbage
  • 2 sprigs fresh oregano (Or 1 tsp dried)
  • 6 cups broth


  • 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.
