Meatless Monday - Winter Warming Soup

Not much will warm you like a nice hot bowl of soup.  It's also a really good way to get most of the vitamins from your vegetables into your body.  This soup is full of vegetable and opportunity to make changes based on what you prefer to eat.  Don't like cauliflower?  Try broccoli instead.  Don't have any zucchini in the house?  Use an other squash variety.  This helps to keep things easy and interesting.  This recipe makes about 8 servings, I normally freeze some for future enjoyment.

This soup is vegan and gluten free but I like to serve some garlic bread with it.

Winter Warming Soup

  • 1 Medium cabbage, cored and quartered
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 4 carrots, finely sliced
  • 2 parsnips, diced
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 3 medium potatoes, diced
  • 2 zucchini 
  • 1 small hot pepper of choice
  • 1 medium head of cauliflower, separated into florets
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp fresh thyme (less if dried)
  • 2 TBS fresh parsley
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Slice the cabbage quarters into thin strips.

Heat the oil in a large stock pot.  Add the cabbage, carrots, and parsnips then cook for 10 - 15 minutes over medium heat.  Stir frequently.

Stir the broth into the vegetables and bring to a boil.  Add the potatoes, zucchini, pepper, tomatoes and herbs, when the soup just starts to boil again reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes until all the vegetables are tender.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.
