Developed this recipe whilst making a variation of the "Cabbage Soup Diet" cabbage soup! Very healthy dish packed with tons of vegetables and spices with very low salt/fat content - perfect to have as a light meal if you're watching your calorie intake. Family found it very tasty and agreed that the use of so many vegetables and slow cooking the soup on low for a few hours allowed a strong depth of flavour to develop. My carnivorous brother even devoured a huge bowl and soups/vegetables don't do much for him. Makes enough to feed a small army but is perfect for freezing.
