Purple Soup — Red Cabbage and Onions

Red Cabbage SoupSo, you may have seen the recent post I put up on the SueroViv Cultured Vegetables from Beyond Organic (yum!) but what’s a girl to do with all that leftover red cabbage once she makes 3 glass jars full of kraut and still has a ton of cabbage left?!  Why, purple soup! Of course.

Purple Soup:  Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped red cabbage
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili avocado oil (substitute another oil if you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup orzo (rice-shaped pasta)
  • 1 tablespoon Bragg’s aminos
  • Optional flavor additions:  cumin, white wine, crushed red pepper, garlic, fresh-squeezed lemon juice

Purple Soup:  Directions

Sauté cabbage in oil until nearly tender. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Add onions and sauté until tender. Add broth and bring to a boil.  Stir in the pasta and simmer, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes.  Add the Bragg’s aminos, stir, serve, and enjoy!
