Simple and very nutricious, this is a mild soup that is easy to dress up with additional ingredients.


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large Onion; chopped
4 cloves garlic; pressed
1/4 head cabbage; chopped
2 small stalks celery; chopped
2 large Carrots; chopped
2 cups green beans; cut into 1" pieces
1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
salt and pepper; to taste
6 cups low-sodium veggie or chicken broth; (I used 3 of each)
2 cans diced tomatoes; undrained

Original recipe makes 10



In a large soup pot, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and saute until almost transluscent. Add the garlic and cook about 2 more minutes. Add the rest of the veggies and the salt, pepper, and thyme, and saute for 2 more minutes to lock in the flavor. Pour in the broth and tomatoes, stirring. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until tender.

this is a great base to add to. I blended the soup half way through cooking, then added cheddar cheese and creme fraische. The final additipn was a teaspoon of Masala Curry Paste which gave it a brilliant slightly spicy flavour. Amazing

Add cheese, pasta, or additional spices to add some variety. Excellent when served with a soup and bread, or a sandwich. [I posted this recipe.]
