Cabbage and Cauliflower Soup

Why make a cabbage and cauliflower soup

I am not a fan of sauerkraut, but I am a fan of cooked or stir-fried cabbage. One chilly afternoon I looked at what was in my refrigerator and decided to make my own healthy soup. You can skip some of these ingredients, or add more than the recipe suggests. It’s up to you. Let your taste buds and preferences dictate how much or how little to add to this cabbage and cauliflower soup, especially your seasonings.

I used equal amounts of cauliflower and cabbage, then added some celery (especially the leaves and lighter colored insides which are more tender) and a carrot. I’m a fan of onions, so an entire onion went into the pot. And then, there has to be garlic, so I sliced a real garlic clove (you can use garlic powder if you don’t have the real thing) and added it to the mix. I used real chicken broth, but you can use water if you’d like.

Once your ingredients are tender, put half of it (or more or less) in a blender and blend well. Add the mixture back into the pot, add some yogurt, stir, and heat. Serve. If you’d like, you can add a piece of bacon on the top.
