Cabbage Soup

Yet another soup. This time, what several people consider to be superfood, cabbage. I hesitate to use cabbage in my salads, though I do on rare occasions. Mainly because it could contain worms that will not be removed through rinsing the cabbage. I therefore prefer cooked cabbage dishes. I was therefore delighted to discover this recipe. A more convenient and safer method for consuming this supposedly superfood. I expected the soup to be just ordinary – but I was surprised to find that it tasted a lot more than just ordinary. The addition of some simple spices can transform an ordinary dish into a work of art. Just extraordinary!
The original recipe is from Hebbar’s Kitchen. All I did was to make it WFPB compliant.
