Pride of Irish Soup

Pride of Irish Soup created by Engrossed

This recipe was posted for ZWT II and the source is www.elook.org. I picked this dish because soups served with crusty bread are very popular starter courses for Icelandic dinner parties and welcome fare on cold nights. I love the name of this soup and it would be so good served with smoked Icelandic lamb meat. Dare I also mention that my Mother's maiden name was Sullivan and my father's last name was Ryan! So I'm an Irish Colleen born in the U.S., half-raised on Czech food, who developed a fondness for Tex-Mex fare, and eventually moved to Iceland. Now that's a real culinary cultural exchange program of epic proportion! :-) ... PLS NOTE: In response to reviewer comments, I amended this recipe to make the preparation easier and clearer.

    Great soup! Instead of the blender, I hand mashed to keep the cabbage bits. I will be making this again. I had to freeze half, so when I have that, I will let you know how it freezes. Made for Holiday Tag Game. Thanks for posting a keeper!
