Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup

22 Sep

I put this recipe together while trying to recreate a soup I’ve had many times at Izzy’s restaurant in Cinci. This goes nicely with the Turkey Reuben sandwich I posted yesterday, and combined they’re only about 300 calories!

It’s a simple but yummy soup.  I really enjoyed it, and if you like cabbage, I think you will too.

Ingredients:

  • 1 small-medium head of cabbage, diced into 1 inch squares
  • 1/2 a medium onion, chopped
  • 40 oz of beef broth (use vegetable broth to make this vegetarian!)
  • 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 TBSP splenda brown sugar blend
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together in a soup pot, and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and cook, covered for about 1 hour, stirring periodically.

Note:  I tried to make this in the crockpot and it didn’t really work.  This one’s a stovetop soup for me going forward.

Roasted cabbage and carrots

3 Jan

This is an adaptation from a recipe I found in a magazine, and it was definitely a “make again” in my house. I love cabbage as it is, but this take resulted in a sweet, tangy treat, with just enough smokey char flavor. I served it with grilled turkey kielbasa, which was a good pairing.

Ingredients:

– 1 head of cabbage, cubed into 1 inch cubes
– 1 yellow onion, sliced
– 1 tbsp olive oil
– 1 tsp sugar
– 1/2-1 tsp salt (to taste)
– 1 tsp pepper
– 3 carrots
– 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
– 2 tsp franks red hot sauce
– 1 tbsp melted light butter or margarine

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, stir together cabbage, onion, oil, sugar, salt and pepper.

2. Line 2 baking sheets with foil, and spread cabbage mixture evenly between them.

3. Bake 10 min at 450, then stir cabbage around on pan and continue baking another 10 min.

4. Wash and peel your carrots, then continue using peeler to “peel” layers of carrot into “ribbons.”

5. In same large bowl Mix carrots, butter, hot sauce and vinegar.

6. Remove pans from oven, and spoon cabbage back into bowl with carrot mixture. Stir together.

7. Redistribute mixture back onto 2 pans and broil on high about 3 minutes.
