You MUST make this soup!

January 5, 2009

We make this soup pretty often in the winter time – it’s hearty and has some really great flavors. It’s SUPER easy and you probably have almost all of the ingredients in your pantry and fridge right now. No idea where this recipe came from…my mommy gave it to me years ago!

Cabbage, Potato, and White Bean Soup with Cilantro Croutons

1/2 onion, diced
1/2 medium head of cabbage, thinly sliced
1 pound potatoes, peeled and diced
4 ounces of ham, diced
6 cups chicken stock
1 1/2 cups cooked white beans

4-8 slices day old baguette
2 T olive oil
4-5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
1 tomato, diced
juice of 1/2 lemon
3 T chopped cilantro

Combine onion, cabbage, potatoes, ham, and stock. Simmer 40 minutes. Add beans, simmer 15-20 minutes.

Puree last 6 ingredients in blender or food processor. Brown bread in additional olive oil. Ladle soup into deep bowls, top with one or two croutons, spoon puree on top. YUM!

**Notes** I usually skip the bread and just blend the cilanto paste right into the pot of soup. You can also leave the ham out completely, just add a little salt to the soup.
