Cabbage and Spring Greens Soup!
It doesn’t sound very appetising does it?
Since I got my soup maker for Christmas I’m constantly on the lookout for new recipes to try – the soup aisle in supermarkets always gets me thinking about what I can recreate at home and the fruit and veg sections provide me with just as much inspiration with the pre-prepared soup packs that they all seem to be selling these days.
My Cabbage and Spring Greens Soup was inspired by a pack that I found in the fresh veg section of our local Asda which I thought sounded lovely when I saw it but didn’t buy it at the time as I already had soup ingredients of leeks, potatoes, butternut squash and sweet potatoes in my trolley (not all for the same soup might I add).
Anyway, fast forward a week or so and I came across a big bag of spring greens in our local Tesco reduced to 21p which immediately reminded me of the soup mix from the week before. I bought a savoy cabbage for about 60p and headed home excited to make my soup.
How to make Cabbage and Spring Greens Soup
Whenever I make a soup, I stick to my tried and tested ratio of 600g (ish) of food ingredients and then topping up the soup maker to the 1.6l using hot stock – I’ve never had a soup that’s too runny or too thick using these amounts.
I couldn’t remember what else was in the soup mix that I’d seen so I went with a combination of shredded cabbage (one big handful), spring greens (two handfuls), onions (half a handful) and potatoes (enough to make it up to 600g). I also added a couple of squirts of squeezy garlic and seasoned it really well. I used a ham stock made with ham stock cubes and just did what I normally do which is to roughly chop up the veg and throw everything in the soup maker and switch it on.
21 minutes later, this was my tea….
It was delicious!
Cabbage and Spring Greens Soup is one of those foods that sounds awful, doesn’t look great but tastes amazing and I really recommend you try it.
