Saint Christopher Soup

Recipe by drhousespcatcher

A red cabbage and vegetable broth soup from France good for indigestion problems or hangovers. I think this came from a message board about 2001. I am not sure where it came from before that.

This is from the book "Twelve Months of Monastery Soups" by Brother Victor-Antoine d'Avila-Latourrette. It's a lovely book, if you haven't seen it. I like this recipe, but it has WAY too much lemon juice. I've made it a couple times. I would either leave the lemon juice out or use 1-2 TB instead of 8. I am making this tonight and I'm considering trying some wine vinegar instead of lemon.
