  • 1/2 Green cabbage, thinly sliced I used leftover boiled cabbage from when I made stuffed cabbage.
  • 2 Carrots, diced
  • 2 Small Potatoes, diced
  • 2 Celery Stalks, thinly sliced
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 4 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 cups Vegetable broth
  • 14 oz Fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Chili paste use tomato paste if you don't like some heat
  • 1 Vegetable bouillon cube, crushed
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika


  • In a pot, add the olive oil and saute the garlic and onions until transluscent and fragrnat.
  • Then, add the carrots, potatoes, celery, and cabbage. Season generously with salt, pepper, the bouillon cube, the chili paste, turmeric, cumin, and paprika. Give it a quick stir.
  • Then, add all of the vegetable broth and bring this to a boil then simmer for about 40 minutes. All the components should be tender! I like to squeeze a little bit of lemon over the top. Enjoy!
