Cabbage-Vegetable Soup

Source: Everyday Food, December 2009

Ingredients

  • 2 medium leeks, white and light green parts only
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced small
  • 2 medium carrots, diced small
  • 2 celery stalks, diced small
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 medium Yukon Gold potato, peeled and diced small
  • 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 head (1 1/2 pounds) green cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves

Directions

  1. Halve leeks lengthwise; rinse thoroughly,
    pat dry, and cut into 1/2-inch
    slices. In a large Dutch oven or heavy
    pot, heat oil over medium-high. Add
    onion, carrots, and celery; cook, stirring
    occasionally, until softened, about
    5 minutes. Add leeks and garlic and
    cook, stirring, until leeks begin to
    soften, 2 minutes. Add potato, broth,
    and bay leaves and bring to a boil.
    Stir in cabbage and season generously
    with salt and pepper.

  2. Return soup to a boil, then reduce
    to a rapid simmer. Cover and cook until
    vegetables are tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
    Remove from heat; stir in vinegar
    and thyme. Season with salt and pepper.

    Simple ingredients come together to make a stellar soup. Just delightful for a simple supper with crusty bread. Cabbage is so underrated and under used....the sweetness it brings is a lovely counterpoint in this savory soup.

    First cold day in St. Louis and made this delicious soup. I went a little overboard on thyme but otherwise awesome. Added string beans and corn too. Soon gooood.

    We absolutely love this soup. The first time I made it I added some ham and it was wonderful. Forgot the vinegar, so don't know if I am missing out on something or not. It is one of our favorite soups and perfect for a cold winter night!

    made this tonight and was great! I used one less leek and one more carrot. Do like the directions say and add plenty of salt and pepper. Has a very light note of sweetness

    Just made this and I'm eating it now. One of those moments where I could have ordered take out or made something good for myself. I chose this and I'm so glad I did. I didn't use all the liquid as suggested just because I know I like mine with a bit less liquid than normal. I also cut up the celery leaves and put those in close to the end. Great, quick soup!

    OMG! This is the best cabbage soup I've ever had! Even without the leeks, it was so tasty. I can't wait to serve this to my parents who are soup lovers. You can never go wrong with a Martha Stewart recipe.
