Sweet & sour cabbage soup

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 \N Head cabbage
2 larges Cans crushed tomatoes with
\N \N Added puree
\N \N (or some equivalent)
1 large Onion
5 \N Cloves garlic
\N \N Juice of 2 lemons or about
\N \N 1/4*cup balsamic or wine
\N \N Vinegar
½ cup Brown sugar
1 \N 2 talbespoons of grated
\N \N Fresh ginger
\N \N Salt and pepper to taste

~ slice cabbage thinly to create cabbage strips, - half onion and slice thinly to create half rings - crush, slice or dice garlic - grate ginger

Put everything in a large soup pot and add water to cover plus a little more. Bring to boil, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 2-3 hours (longer the better).

Don't be afraid to add more tomato, sugar, or vinegar if you like it more tomatoey, sweeter, or more sour. Taste a couple hours into the cooking for adjustment. The cabbage will have imparted its flavor and the tomatoes will have mellowed.

You can also add rice during the last 45 - 30 minutes (also add the more water appropriate for the amount of rice you add. For example, I added ¾ cup brown rice and 1½ cup water the last 40 minutes) Or add a can of white or gabanzo beans. (Again these won't need cooking, so just add at the end) [If you're not a vegetarian, you can use b**f or ch*ck*n stock. Even some browned ground m**t or soup bones.] Posted by nlehrer@...
