Cabbage & White Bean Soup

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

A very hearty, homestyle type of soup that is perfect for a snowy winter day. As an option, you can also add pieces of sliced kielbasa to make it more meaty.

Lots of healthy ingredients in this soup! I was eager to try it but disappointed that it is on the sour side. I added in some sliced Bocca smoked "sausage," and I noticed in step 2 celery is mentioned but it's not in the ingredient list. Since I didn't have any I didn't use any. At the end I only added about 1 tsp. of the vinegar. I wound up doctoring it up with more brown sugar, black pepper and some Pickapeppa Sauce make it more to our liking. The end result was just OK.
