Simple Cabbage Soup



  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 3 cups (8 oz) mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 pound, 4-5 cups cabbage, cut in large chunks about 1 inch
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cups vegetable broth, flavorful!
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar (or red wine vinegar– a little sharper so start with 1 teaspoon or try champagne vinegar)
  • Instructions

    1. Sauté onions with olive oil in a heavy soup pot over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
    2. Turn heat to medium and add in mushrooms sauté another 5 minutes. Add more olive oil if needed or put a lid on for a minute this will let the mushrooms sweat and soften without adding more oil.
    3. Add garlic, cabbage, carrots, smoked paprika, thyme, bay leaf, dijon, tomato paste, salt, pepper. Mix until tomato paste is fully distributed.
    4. Add broth and bring to a simmer for 20 minutes. Turn off heat. Add parsley and sherry vinegar (champagne vinegar or red wine vinegar).
