My version of cabbage soup

Sunday, June 16, 2013

It is great for when i don't have the appetite to eat, feeling sick or have the flu/cold. Seems to get me back to myself in no time .... Here is how i make it ...

I usually make for 3 servings.

List of ingridents are :
Mustard seeds (handful)
Onions (2 medium sized)
celery ( 1 whole bunch)
cabbage (can use any type, 1 whole cabbage)
Carrots ( 2 medium sized)
Chili ( 2 whole chili)
garlic (2 table spoon of crushed garlic)
vegetable stock (2 cubes)
water ( enough to cover all vegetables and 2 inches above that)

Cut all the vegetables the way you like it, i often cut the cabbage roufully and everything else finely.

In a big pot add mustard seeds , cabbage and onions. cover, when you hear the mustard seeds popping, add the celery and carrots and water, bring to boil, add the garlic, vegetable stock and chili.

Lower temp to a simmer, cover and cook until vegetables have become soft, it usually takes them about 10 minutes or so. Keep stiring time to time.

Turn off stove when vegetables have soften to your liking, I often let it rest before plating and eating, But you don't have to.
