Cabbage Mushroom Soup

You will love this nourishing vegetarian quick to fix comfort soup with just 2 main ingredients rich in antioxidants. The convenience of one pot meal on a busy cold night makes this a no-fuss soup. 

Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin K, C and B6. Its is also fiber-rich and very good source of manganese, dietary fiber, potassium, vitamin B1, folate and copper. Its is low in calorie, saturated fat and cholesterol. Mushroom being a good source of protein (especially for vegetarians), dietary fiber, iron, zinc and vitamin C, D and B6 adds more flavor to this dish.

Great depth of flavor deliciously thick soup will steal you heart away when served in a bread bowl. Although I have embellished my hot soup with potato boro's this time. Well its about time to enjoy easy and simple healthy warm comfort soup this winter. You sure will impress your guests effortlessly!

  1. Butter - 1 teaspoon (melted)
  2. Mushroom - 2 cups (chopped) 
  3. Cabbage - 2 cups (roughly chopped)
  4. Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tablespoon
  5. Onions (white) - 1/4 cup (optional)
  6. Coriander leaves - 1/4 cup (chopped)
  7. Salt to taste
  8. Water as required (approximately 3 cups)
1. Heat a large sauce pan with butter and ginger garlic paste, chopped mushrooms and onions to saute for 3-4 minutes. 

2. Pour in the water and add cabbage and coriander leaves along with required salt. Bring it to a boil.

3. Using a hand blender, directly puree the soup in the same pot. You may reserve some cooked cabbage to float in your soup.

4. Embellish with croutons/ potato boro or a slice of toasted bread on the side of the hot soup. Although serving in a bread bowl would be ideal. YUM!

1. Let cool  for few minutes if using a blender. 

2. Button mushrooms results in light creamy colored soup. Whereas, Shiitake mushrooms add more flavor but results in a light brown color.

3. Notice I haven't added any spice as the natural flavor will be throughly enjoyed. The mild heat from the ginger and garlic would suffice. You may add ground black pepper if required.
