Cabbage and Sweet Potato Soup

Jump to Comments

Just when it was feeling normal not to grab a coat to go outside, the weather turned cold again this week and now it is snowing outside! I hope my newly budded daffodils survive. I was looking forward to concocting more salad recipes, but alas, I will enjoy soup for a little while longer. Here is a belly warming recipe that hit the spot just the other night. The sweet potatoes and cabbage are a great combination!

Cabbage and Sweet Potato Soup

1 tbsp grapeseed oil

1 onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 celery stick, chopped

4 tsp cumin

1 tsp rosemary

1 sweet potato, peeled and cubed

1/2 head green cabbage, chopped small

3 carrots, chopped

1 16 oz. can tomatoes

2 c. vegetable broth

1 c. cooked barley, spelt would be good here too

1 can white beans

salt and pepper to taste

Saute onion and celery in oil in heavy soup pot until softened. Add garlic and stir, cooking for 1 minute. Add the cumin and rosemary and stir and cook for 1-2 minutes. This will be dry, don’t worry. Add the sweet potatoes, cabbage, carrots and salt and pepper, stir. Cook til vegetables turn a little soft. Add the tomatoes and broth and cook til the veggies are all the way done. Add the barley and beans and warm through. Enjoy hot!
