This is a really fine vegetable soup which I have had many times, varying the veggies according to what I had on hand. It varies a lot in taste and texture but is always good! The only thing I consistently add is GARLIC, which I usually cook a little in a spray or two of olive oil with the onions before adding the rest of the ingredients.
Nice vegetable soup with lots of cabbage. Very easy to make and so good for you! It may just be my taste, but I did need to add more tomato paste and some vegetable broth to give it some more flavor. The cayenne gives it a good kick.
