The Best Cabbage Soup Recipe
You can’t go wrong with a classic cabbage soup. It is loaded with vegetables such as cabbage, celery, and courgette and it makes a delicious lunch or dinner.
Put your apron on and try making this hearty soup at home!
- ½ onion, peeled and chopped
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
- 2 tomatoes, peeled and diced
- 250 g courgette, grated
- 500 g cabbage shredded
- 60 g celery, diced
- 750 ml vegetable stock
- 2 tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp fresh coriander, freshly chopped
Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized non-stick saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes, or until the onion is soft and translucent.
Once the onions are soft, add the rest of the chopped vegetables and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
Finally, add in the vegetable stock and fresh herbs and lower the heat, then allow to simmer until the vegetables have softened. This will take approximately half an hour.
Serve in a bowl, and enjoy!
