I cut this out from the National Examiner. This goes with the Cabbage Soup diet, where you can lose 10 pounds in a week. I haven't tried it, but I will soon. I am guessing at the time to cut veggies. Enjoy!
- 1 head cabbage
- 6 carrots
- 6 medium onions
- 6 green onions
- 2 red peppers or 2 green peppers
- 3 large tomatoes
- 5 stalks celery, trimmed
- 1⁄2 cup brown rice
- salt, to taste
- fresh ground black pepper, to taste
- Cut cabbage, carrots, onions, green onions, peppers, tomatoes, and celery into bite-size pieces.
- Place vegetables in a large stock pot and cover with water.
- Bring water to a boil and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
- Cover and simmer until the vegetables are soft, about 45 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cook the brown rice according to package directions.
- Add the rice to the soup when the vegetables are almost cooked.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Allow the soup to cool before storing in refrigerator.
sounds great! Im going to try it but I think I will use v8 juice instead of water to simmer it in.
