So I was up early again this morning. My body does this sometimes, decides that it’s perfectly okay to wake at 5am! Anyway, I decided to use the time efficiently and make a soup for our lunch today using the other half of the Savoy cabbage from last night’s tea.

Syn free on EE, EE SP, Red Days and Green Days
Makes about 4 bowls worth

– Half a head of cabbage, chopped
– One stick of celery, chopped
– One carrot, chopped
– Half a large onion, chopped
– One green pepper, chopped
– 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
– A pint of boiling water
– One chicken stock cube
– Carton of pasatta
– 1 tsp of dried oregano
– 1 tsp of cumin powder
– Black pepper
– Low calorie spray

Spray a heavy bottomed saucepan with low cal spray and heat over a gentle heat. Add onion, celery, carrot and green pepper to the pan and cook until the veg is tender. Stir in garlic. Pour in boiling water and crumble in the stock cube. Stir in pasatta, dried oregano and cumin powder and add the cabbage to the pan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes or so or until the cabbage and other vegetables are tender, season well with black pepper. Blitz in a food processor or with a hand blender until thick and smooth adding more water if necessary. Then serve and enjoy – I will be reheating mine later although when I tested the soup I understood why some people have soup for breakfast because it tasted very nice and I was tempted, lol! Should keep for 3 days if kept in the fridge.
