This is a thick and hearty soup. Everyone loves it! The cabbage really makes the soup. I got it from The Best Of Country Cooking (second edition) cook book. I have shared this recipe many times because it is simple yet delicious, especially on a cold day.
One of the greatest things I learned at college. We always serve in a warm crusty bread bowl, but it is good in any kind of bowl! As wonderful as it is the first day, the second day reaches a new level of goodness. Serve as a meal if you want. Enjoy!
This is a soup that I made recently. My husband really enjoyed it and I believe I will be making this a lot this winter. He had no idea that I used spinach and was very suprised when I told him. He hates spinach but loves this soup!
This is a delicious, healthy and quick soup with a lovely French flair -- and a great way to use leftover ham. The Puy lentils can be pricey, so you may want to substitute other lentils--they'll taste almost as good but they will not retain their shape/texture the way the Puy lentils will.
The original recipe for this soup was from Cooking Light Annual Recipes (1996). I adjusted it to suit our tastes. It's been a while since I made this particular soup, but I remember the first time I made it, I added some lean ground beef (we ate more meat then) and mixed up the spices a bit. It's a nice mixture and you can really adjust to your taste without fear. Serve with some warm crusty bread.
