Who would think that a couple of peasant ingredients like cabbage and potatoes could come together and make such a delicious, nourishing, heart warming meal?
I really want to have more to say about this soup, but it kind of speaks for itself.
It’s simple, satisfying, and makes for the perfect head-start meal to make on a Sunday and have in your fridge all week for a quick lunch or dinner.
I’m curious to make this soup again, but this time starting with a little ground pork and trading the potatoes for some brown rice. It would be like the soup version of my Mom’s stuffed cabbage. It’s on my radar.
What about you? What do you like to make to keep you warm as the chilly weather rolls in?
