Cranberry and Cabbage Soup

Posted By Nicole On September 10, 2005 @ 10:03 am In Recipes,Savory Soups | 13 Comments

Somewhat unseasonably cool weather sparked a desire in me to make soup . Generally, during the summer, I stick with cold soups. I love gazpacho, for example. Elise has an excellent recipe for it, though I like mine on the thick side, so I cut down on the tomato juice that she calls for. But the cool weather made me think of fall, which made the fact that this soup contains cranberries – something I associate with fall and Thanksgiving – particularly appealing.

The original recipe called for adding beets, which I am not a fan of, so I simply used more cabbage. Red cabbage, red cranberry sauce and red onion. I must say that the simple ingredients blended well and it tasted great.
It was also one of the prettiest soups I’ve ever eaten.

Cranberry and Cabbage Soup

1/2 cup cranberry sauce, with whole berries

1 medium red onion, sliced thin

1/2 head red cabbage, sliced thin (approx 3 cups)

6 cups water

1 tbsp sugar

salt to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large pot and stir to combine. Bring to a boil and simmer until cabbage is tender.
