Cabbage Soup

IMG_20171120_113754This soup is another one designed for a crock pot or Dutch oven. It makes a nice, healthy, and hot meal for a cold winter day. You can add in all types of vegetables beyond what is listed below–cherry tomatoes are a family favorite. (We still have some frozen from our garden last year!)

Ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 carrots, sliced
  • 8 cups shredded cabbage (about 1 small head)
  • 1 green pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 12 oz. tomato juice
  • 1 1/2 qt. water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon savory (Helps with digestion of beans and cabbage)

Materials:

  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring teaspoons
  • Small saucepan
  • Dutch Oven
  • Slicer or Mandolin for shredding cabbage
  • Whisk
Directions:
1.  In dutch oven heat 1 tablespoon oil and saute onion and carrots until almost tender.  Add garlic and saute a couple of minutes.
2.  Add cabbage, green pepper, tomato juice, water, and salt.  Cook over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, then cover and simmer 20 more minutes.
3.  Add potatoes and cook an additional 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
4.  Meanwhile, heat 2 teaspoons oil and flour together in a saucepan until golden brown about 2 minutes, stirring to prevent burning.  Whisk in one cup of the hot soup into the flour mixture and whisk till smooth.  Pour flour mixture into remaining soup.  Add savory and pepper to taste.  Heat about 5 minutes more.

While you enjoy your soup, why not listen to a good book? Starter Zone, the first book of my new YA/LitRPG series, The Revelation Chronicles, is now available on Audible!

Audible Version Available

When hydrologists inscribe the consciousness of a human mind onto a single drop of water, a Revelation sweeps the land. The wealthy race to upload their minds into self-contained virtual realities nicknamed Aquariums. In these containers people achieve every hope, dream, and desire. But governments wage war for control of the technology. Terrorist attacks cause massive destruction. The Aquariums fail. Inscribed human minds leech into the water cycle, wreaking havoc.

Street gangs rule the cities in the three years since the fall of civilization. Sixteen-year-old Cami and her younger sister Alby struggle to survive. Every drop of untreated water puts their lives in peril. Caught and imprisoned by soldiers who plan to sell them into slavery, Cami will do anything to escape and rescue her sister. Even if it means leaving the real word for a life in the realms, a new game-like reality created by the hydrologists for the chosen few.

But life in the realms isn’t as simple as it seems. Magic, combat, gear scores, quests, and dungeons are all puzzles to be solved as the sisters navigate their new surroundings. And they encounter more dangerous enemies than any they faced in the real world.

Time to play the game.
