The Buckets’ Cabbage Soup

CCF Cabbage Soup arial 1

“The only meals they could afford were bread and margarine for breakfast, boiled potatoes and cabbage for lunch, and cabbage soup for supper.”

–Chapter 1, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

The Buckets’ Simple Cabbage Soup

  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • 2 Cups or so Chopped Green Cabbage
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 6 Cups Vegetable Broth (I used half veggie & half dashi)
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. Ground Black Pepper, or to taste

In a large pot over medium-low heat melt the butter & then throw in the cabbage & onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender–not brown.

Stir in the broth plus salt & pepper, lower the heat, & cover. Let simmer for about 15-20 minutes. Enjoy! It really is tasty.
