Spicy Cabbage Soup

Ahhh, my beloved cabbage soup. How I love thee. You're low calorie, low fat and filling ways simply sweep me off my feet.

In your largest pot, add ALL of the ingredients listed below. Simple enough right?
  • 1 head green cabbage, chopped
  • 1 large purple onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 can black beans (new addition)
  • 1/2 cup uncooked brown jasmine rice (new addition)
  • 2 Trader Joe's Jalapeno Chicken Sausages, chopped into small pieces (new addition)
  • 16oz can pureed tomatoes (new addition)
  • 32oz can tomato sauce (new addition)
  • Enough low sodium, low calorie chicken stock to cover everything
  • 2 tbs black pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp sweet basil
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 bay leaf
Give this all a good stir, turn the burner to low-medium heat and covered it. It's safe to let this sit and simmer away for about 2-3 hours. Just give it an occasional stir.

I like my cabbage soup SUPER SPICY but if you prefer a milder version, just add less black pepper and skip the cayenne.

This soup has a lot of depth, flavor and texture. ENJOY! ;)
