Tonight I have a rare treat where I am going to share a yummy recipe from a brand new yet-to-be released cookbook BEFORE I even get around to the giveaway and book review…
Ya see when I mentioned this yummy Slim Down Soup on Facebook the other day, a lot of you were very interested in the recipe ASAP…
I was cooking up a batch as a part of my Early Bird Review of Gooseberry Patch’s brand new- not yet in stores- cookbook, The Harvest Table.
And, while I am almost ready to write up my review and hold a giveaway for a copy, I thought I’d go ahead and share this recipe.
The recipe calls for 4 cups water, but I always substitute broth for water in my soups… so I used 4 cups Chicken Broth.
I poured it in my favorite
Soup Everything Pot and got down to business.
I added one envelope of Onion Soup Mix– a total pantry staple at this house!
Then my seasonings… 1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp of Pepper
and 1/4 tsp very blurry Garlic Powder
2 Carrots or a handful of baby carrots– again, chopped…
A small head of cabbage– chopped, or if it is a large head, just use about half.
And bag the other half for a yummy side later in the week.
Then add 1 Onion- you guessed it, all chopped up!
Now you have some decisions to make… if you want the soup to taste like regular veggie soup, add 3 cans of regular diced tomatoes or even Italian seasoned tomatoes. I opted to add Chili Ready Tomatoes to add a little warmth and spice to the soup (like a mild chili).
You can also add 3 T Bacon Bits if you’d like, but I skipped that step because I was out of Bacon Bits.
Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.
This soup is a great for a lunch time warm up with a side sandwich or as a side with dinner. It also freezes well. Mommy score!
