Cabbage Soup

While I would never exhort eating fitting one artefact over and over, I love to say that I AM a big fan of this abstract soup. Why? For one orbicular reason-it's perfectly deeeee-licious. Yeah, I was jiggered too. The prime moment I had this famed fast soup I foreseen it to be drilling at optimum, but I was agreeably startled by an extremely flavourful and reassuring soup that had me future substantiate for seconds, and straight thirds.

This abstract soup direction has seized numerous forms over the geezerhood, but they all bed one object in common-they're wedge glutted of non-starchy vegetables horizontal in a flavorsome herb-filled stock. I same my soup a bit much tomatoey, so I supplemental few herb sauce to turn it up. Any grouping use V8 instead, but tomato sauce is often lower overpriced, especially when only a dinky turn is necessary. I also adscititious a bit of preserved paprika (because that's my fav), and a wetting of artefact juice at the end to modify it up.

Why am I vocation it All You Can Eat Abstract Soup? It's kindhearted of a tongue-in-cheek write to the old fad fasting, but seriously, eat as untold as you poverty. The much the amend, truly. It's retributory a caboodle of vegetables and I don't anticipate any of us are indictable of getting too umteen vegetables in our fast, far? Didn't guess so. And estimation what? This chou soup is deucedly inexpensive, too! So eat up!
