Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the meat slowly in the olive oil in your big stock pot.
  2. Add in the onion, celery, carrots, scallions and leek and cook slowly until they start to get some color.
  3. Add the cabbage, garlic and juice and stewed tomatoes along with the water, and stock.
  4. Add the spices and herbs.
  5. Cook very slowly until the cabbage is tender, about 3 hours. Cooking longer will result in a much richer soup. I like to cook it about 4 hours.
  6. You can add a dollop of sour cream or some grated parmesan or romano cheese to garnish. Two totally different flavors to change it up a bit.
  7. If you are missing an ingredient or two just substitute what you have on hand such as green beans, corn, broccoli, etc. If you don't have the juice use what you do have. If you like a certain spice or herb, use it. If you grow fresh herbs, use them. Really, this is very forgiving. For a fuller soup add in a couple of diced red potatoes.
