You might look at this title and thing it sounds bland and boring. But no! This was actually super tasty! And what a great way to use extra cabbage that you might have. As always there are lots of variations that you can do with this soup, so play around and make it work with what you have.
Heat 2 tbsp olive oil or butter in a dutch oven
Sautee 1 cup chopped onion, carrots, 2-3 cloves garlic and any other veggies that you have (we did parsnips – potatoes or celery would be good too!)
When veggies are soft, add 2 quarts of chicken broth and bring to a boil.
Return to a simmer, and add half a head of cabbage ,chopped and cored. We used red cabbage, but green works too.
When cabbage wilts (in 10 minutes or so) add one can stewed or diced Italian tomatoes
Add seasonings – garlic salt, italian seasonings, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, a dash of cayenne
Here’s where you can get creative – add in few of the following. We did beef and quinoa to make this a heartier meal!
Ground Beef (seasoned with Italian seasonings, garlic salt, onion powder, etc)
Cooked Brown Rice

I’m not quite sure why it’s called healing – I think it must have something to do with the cabbage and onions and chicken broth?
