Hot and Sour Cabbage Soup Recipe

Upon request here  is the recipe!   

I must first state here that I always approximate my amounts as I have made this so many times that i do not measure anymore.  Also I will preface the recipe by saying that I use all organic ingredients but it is not necessary!  And lastly i use my own canned tomato salsa which is not as thick as the store bought tomato sauce.  i am not a lover of tomato sauce so I a…dd water to mine.  So use the basics and then do what you want!  This is made in my slow cooker and sits on the counter for about four days and is devoured.  Also i am spice freak so temper the ingredients accordingly.    soup: Ingredients; 1 tbs. olive oil 1 small onion – cut up, minced, diced – how you like it I small cabbage or hack up a big one – i just slice the cabbage into long/medium strips – nothing fancy 2 large carrots  – chopped anyway you like or throw in a bunch o baby carrots – I use whatever is in the fridge and is easiest that day 1 15 oz.   can tomatoe sauce – any one you like. 6 cups water 1/4 cup Tamari (soy sauce) 1/3 CUP Rice vinegar or more if you like the sour 1 tsp red hot chili flakes or more if you like spicy 1/2 tsp salt black pepper Now sometimes I add baked tofu cut into cubes but not often and not necessary.  Now here the other fun part – put in as much as you want~! Try it and then create your own.  I add tons of carrots now.    So i turn on my slow cooker and let it heat up.  No particular length of time. Then i throw in the onions.  then i throw in the cabbage and carrots.  then the liquids – tomato sauce and water.  After this I add everything else.  Off it cooks in my slow  cooker on high for 4 hours.  If you are adding tofu i suggest you bake it etc. and throw it in the last half hour..  You can pig out completely and feel completely safe from any weight gain!  Tasty, warm, sour, yummy, filling.  Add some awesome french bread and herbed goats butter and done!  This is lunch around here every day right now Since my kid discovered what was in the slow cooker.  Too funny.   Let me know what you do with yours and how it turns out.  Just Remember though the two super important ingredients are the rice vinegar and the chili flakes.    So good I plan to make a pot of it today!

  1. Thanks, Kathy. I’m going to make this weekend. Totally suits our style of eating. We both could LIVE on soup. Sounds scrumptious. BY THE WAY, I’m with you on the all organic. Yum!
