Rainy Day Cabbage Soup
If you’re from NY, then you know about Citarella’s Spicy Cabbage Soup - it's delish. This is my version: super clean, extra spicy, and perfect for this gloomy day. Serves 6 as an appetizer.
1 brown onion, diced fine
2 stalks of celery, diced fine
½ poblano chili, diced fine
2 garlic cloves, diced fine
1 tsp cumin
¼ tsp oregano
½ tsp JF Spicy Salt
8 cups green cabbage, chopped
1 (14oz) can of diced tomatoes (sub stewed tomatoes)
6 cups vegetable stock
Step 1: In a large dutch oven, warm the olive oil over medium/medium-high heat and begin to sauté your onion, celery, poblano chili, and garlic.
Step 2: Season with cumin, oregano, and JF Spicy Salt. Allow that to become slightly translucent over the heat.
Step 3: Work in your chopped cabbage, carrots, and the can of diced tomatoes; combine throughout.
Step 4: Pour in your vegetable stock. Bring this to a boil, then cover and let simmer over low heat for about an hour.
Step 5:Once time has elapsed and you’re satisfied with the consistency, transfer to serving bowls and enjoy warm topped with a dollop of plain coconut yogurt, cilantro, jalapeño, fresh lime, and my JF Spicy Salt.
