Saint Christopher Soup

"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."

  • Let the mixture sit for an hour, stirring from time to time.
  • Bring the broth to a boil, add the cabbage and all contents of the bowl, and cook for about 5 minutes. Serve immediately after.

  1. 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.
  2. I didnt have a hangover or stomach problem but had 1/2 a red cabbage that needed to be used. Very delicious. I just used canned vegetable broth. and had it for lunch with a turkey sandwhich. Thank you for sharing.


AND that is the end of this. If the phone doesn't ring? It's me. If you are looking to ask me a question? I'm not here. I won't answer. I do not assure you that the ingredients, amounts or even the directions in any recipe under my two accounts are correct due to the bad directional pointer in the database that is causing problems with the amounts or ingredients. I will also NOT assure you they are correct when the site claims they are fixed. Use at your own risk. They will be correct on my site. End of story. Sigh..
