cabbage soup

i got sick this past week. i was hungry all the time, but i wanted something warm, comforting and easy to swallow. oh, and easy to make since i didn't have much energy. i made a cabbage soup that served all my needs.

  • 1 pound cabbage, shredded (i use dole coleslaw mix)
  • 1 6oz. can tomato paste
  • 9 cups water
  • 1 veggie bouillon cube (i use knorr)
  • 1 can stewed tomatoes (14.5 oz)
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cajun seasoning
  • 3 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoon onion powder
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1½ cups textured vegetable protein
  • *(or boca ground crumbles)

in a large stock pot (approx. 8 qt), bring everything but the tvp to a boil. lower temperature to medium low, cover, and let simmer for about 40 minutes. add the textured veggie protein and cook for another 15 minutes. check the water level often and add more water or spices if necessary.
makes about 6 hearty bowls of soup (which equals a lot of leftovers if you are trying to kill a cold).

This looks like the ticket. It is also good for fidgety stomach. I'm not a big tvp fan, I think I'll substitute tempeh.

Yum..;cabbage season is coming, I'll have to make a cabbage soup again.

Thanks for your comment on my Foodblog photo. I'm trying to get more involved in the community and figure it out, but it seems a little complicated.

Hey mama! Sorry you were sick. I'm definitely fighting something myself. And I get how comforting food is when you're not feeling well. I'm making cinnamon yam mash as I type this!


PS how funny that we have the same TV trays! Bed Bath & Beyond?

Oh this looks good. Thanks for reminding me! I mke this every winter... I think it's time to start again!

Question though: Is Knorr vegan? I had thought they put geletin in their broth cubes? Maybe not any more?
