I made this current batch, which completely filled a 6 quart soup pot, with a half of a large head of cabbage. Adjust as needed.
1/2 large head of cabbage
1 lg onion
6-8 med small carrots, peeled and sliced
4 med large potatoes, cut in bite sized chunks
three lg ribs celery, sliced
1 can diced tomatoes w/jalapeno
2 cans plain diced tomatoes
three limes, cut in half
Cut up the cabbage in 1" chunks. Cut up the onion in .5" chunks. Put in pot and cover with water. Add the cans of tomatoes, and the rest of the veggies EXCEPT THE LIMES. This amount filled my pot to the rim. (as it cooks, the volume decreases some)
Bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer until Soup Magic does its work
add water to increase volume, if desired. ...when it's all cooked and turns into soup, put the lime halves in and let it sit for a little while. Once the limes are soft, squeeze them thoroughly, juice and pulp in the soup.
It's good with any grains, or plain. I checked some calories place and found a bowl of this stuff only has 71 cals!
B: cabbage soup
L: cabbage soup
D: cabbage soup w/quinoa
S: I do NOT believe myself, but I had a cupcake at work
It didn't taste good but I consumed it like a starving person. Dang. And no, I was NOT feeling hungry when I ate it.
seriously thinking about finding an OA meeting somewhere.
