Red Cabbage and Bean soup

Submitted by: MEGABOMB

Introduction

A simple, warming and hearty soup that's fast to prepare. Sodium appears to be high but that depends on your chosen broth and if you drain and RINSE the beans the sodium will be much lower than reported here.

    3 cups (500 mL) chopped red Cabbage
    2 tbsp (25 mL) white wine vinegar or lemon juice
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
    1 Onion, chopped
    2 cups (625 mL) vegetable broth

    Salt and pepper
    Chopped parsley

  • Easy & Delicious .. my kind of recipe! Had to substitute 3 things with what I had on hand: Used canned black beans (which I rinsed), beef broth, and instead of hot peppers used 1 tbsp of chili powder. What a lovely way to satisfy my craving for hot, comforting soup! - 10/18/11

    Sorry should have been more clear! You toss the chopped cabbage with either vinegar or lemon juice (the second ingredient). I used "acid" because you could use either of those.
