Hearty Cabbage and Potato Soup

Cabbage, aah, not much that you can do with this really healthy, good to eat vegetable right? There's curries, there's coleslaw, there's soup....ahem, did you say soup? Yes, I did!

Try this winning combination of cabbage and potato in a rustic soup. You won't be disappointed.

You will need:

2 carrots, washed and diced.
1/2 cup of cooked rice.
1/4 to 1/2 cup cabbage, washed, shredded.
6 cloves of garlic, crushed and chopped.
1/2 onion, finely diced.
2 Yukon gold potatoes, washed, peeled, and diced.
1 tsp of California style sweet paprika.
Black pepper and salt to taste.
Olive oil 1 tabsp and butter 1tbsp to saute the onion.
Crushed Thyme, 1 tsp to garnish.

In a saucepan, heat the oil and butter together. Saute the onions and garlic until a mild golden brown. Now, add the potatoes, carrots and cabbage and stir for a minute or so. Add paprika, black pepper and salt. Pour enough water to cook the vegetable, covered. I normally do about 2 cups of water. After a rolling boil, cook until potatoes are just about done. Now add the rice and bring to a rolling boil. Turn of the stove and let the flavors seep into the broth. Garnish with the crushed thyme and serve warm with rustic bread. Serves two. Enjoy!
