Rustic Cabbage Soup
I must be making up for my dislike of soup all these years. The parade of soup continues with a Rustic Cabbage Soup. After a few weeks in the fridge I brought out a cabbage and it was cut into bite-size pieces. A pound of Great Northern beans, thanks to my pressure cooker, split perfectly between this soup and the next day's batch of Ribollita. I used the recommended 1/2 cube of Rapunzel w/ herbs, which is growing on me (I usually use the plain veg one). A few very old but viable potatoes were made into matchsticks and tossed in. Of course, there's always an onion, and garlic too. As I'm looking at the original recipe again I'm noticing that I missed the grated cheese on top, but oh well, less calories right?
While I'm loving the soups I do occasionally crave solid food, so this week we revisited those delicious scallops we had a few weeks ago, and I'm counting on some lemon pepper shrimp soon too :)
As of right now I'm all caught up on my posting. I'll be eating from the freezer a lot this month thanks to school/finals, but expect some fun things soon: my cookie exchange pick (still trying to decide between several whole-grain options), a few health-food experiments, probably some holiday-themed nonsense, and (surprise!) more soup.
