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