Easy Cabbage Soup

This is another recipe using tinned potatoes, they are great! I didn't have a lot in my fridge, so decided to make something with my large cabbage. It just shows that experimental cooking is easy and cheap.

Ingredients (serves 4 as starters)

half a cabbage, finely sliced roughly
4 tinned new potatoes, chopped in half
2 stalks of celery, chopped
1 onion, sliced
half a carrot, peeled and chopped
2 cloves of garlic, sliced
2 pinches of dried thyme
1 vegetable stock cube and 1 chicken stock cube in 1.5L of boiling water
half a chilli, sliced
a pinch chilli flakes
pepper (the stock has enough salt)

1. Start by frying the onion and garlic in a little vegetable oil in a large saucepan. Then add the cabbage, carrot and celery, and stir for a few minutes.

2. Pour in everything else, including the potatoes, and cook the soup on a medium/low heat with a lid on for 15-20 minutes.

3. You can now decide whether to eat the soup as it is (as a broth) or use a hand blender to thicken it up.
