Cabbage & Ham Soup
When I think of cabbage soup I think of diet food. Not a fan.
So why did I make it? Well, I had some cabbage in the fridge and left over spiral ham and wanted to use them up. I love making soups so I thought why not make a big pot of Cabbage & Ham soup?
My hubby quickly let me know he won’t go near the soup. (True to his word, he wouldn’t even taste it.)
I didn’t have a recipe for the soup but I figured I could make something up.
Here’s what I did:
About 4 cups Cabbage, finely shredded
1/2 cup Carrots, finely chopped
1/2 cup Celery , finely chopped
1 small Onion, chopped
1/4 c red pepper -chopped
1 can petite diced tomatoes
10 cups water
Chicken Bouillon 0r Vegetable Broth (add as much as you need for the amount of water added)
dash chili pepper
parsley & cilantro (fresh – I used about a tablespoon of finely chopped cilantro and a handful chopped parsley.)
1 or 2 cups Ham (diced or I like to cut it into thin strips)
Chop all the veggies
Add veggies, water & seasoning to cooking pot.
Cook for a few hours or until veggies are tender.
I added the ham about half way through cook time.
Loaded with healthy goodness, this soup turned out very well!
