Cabbage soup is one of those great soups which one can add almost any Vegetable. (Time to clean out your veggie rack he he).

For those chefs who haven't got a Slow Cooker/Crock Pot I have included a recipe using the same above ingredients but cooking it in a conventional pot.

Ingredients

Method

  • 4 med size Chicken breasts skinned and cut into bite sizes, or shredded. 
  • ½ med size Cabbage cored and roughly chopped. 
  • 2 med size Carrots cleaned and cut into ±3mm rings,  doesn't matter if bigger
  • 1large onion, peeled cut in half and then sliced.
  • 1 x400 ml Crushed tin tomato.
  •  2 cloves Garlic crushed.
  • 1 x 400ml Kidney beans drained.
  • 2 medium Potatoes peeled and cut into bite sizes(Banting Dieters and other Dieters can use Cauliflower).
  • 4 cups Chicken or veggie stock.
  • 3 stalks Celery diced.
  • 1 Bay leaf.
  • ¼  tsp dried Thyme.
  • Ground Black Pepper and Salt to taste.
  • ½ tsp. Turmeric.
  • 1 tsp Mild Curry power. (optional, for those that enjoy a bit of a bite to their soup)
  • Place all your ingredients except your dry spices into your slow cooker,
  • Sprinkle all your spices over.
  • Add your Chicken Broth.
  • Set the timer on the slow cooker to low and cook for 6-8 hours. 
    Great, and how easy was that? All you have to do now is sit back and let your slow cooker do the work. 
  • When cooked remove bay leaf.
