Hot and Sour Cabbage Soup

A while ago I had a half head of cabbage in the refrig. I'd thought about making sauerkraut, but just haven't gotten to it yet. In the meantime while my cabbage head kept crying out for me to use her, I ran across this FABULOUS soup recipe: Hot and Sour Cabbage Soup. We'll have this again and again and again. Do try it.

Hot and Sour Cabbage Soup Serves 6

1 Tbs Oil

1 Small Onion, minced

1 Small Cabbage, about the size of a grapefruit

2 Large Carrots, chopped

1 15oz Can Tomatoes, blended smooth

6 Cups Water

1/4 Cup Tamari, low sodium

1/3 Cup Seasoned Rice Vinegar,

1 tsp Hot Red Chili Flakes

1/2 tsp Salt, Black Pepper, to taste (a lot!)

Heat a large 5 qt soup pot that has a heavy lid over medium heat. Add oil and onion, and saute until golden. Meanwhile, quarter your cabbage, remove the core, and shred the cabbage with a large chef’s knife. Add carrots, tomatoes, cabbage and water to the pot and stir well. Add the tamari, vinegar, chili flakes and salt.Bring to a boil, cover, then turn heat down to medium low. Simmer for 20 minutes or until cabbage and carrots are the desired tenderness. Grind a lot of fresh black pepper over the top and serve.

Because I LOVE hot, I added some itsy bitsy pieces of jalapeno pepper.
