Enjoy this warming soup that can be 'dressed' up with shreds of cabbage, lean ham or even sliced mushrooms.

Ingredients

Onion(s)

½ medium, about 60g, chopped

Calorie controlled cooking spray

5 spray(s)

Potato(es), Raw

300 g, peeled, chopped

Garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

Fresh Vegetable Stock

1000 ml, vegetable or chicken stock (made with powder or a cube)

Salt

1 pinch, and black pepper, freshly ground

Cabbage

80 g, green leaves, thinly shredded

Instructions

  1. Put the onion into a medium saucepan sprayed with low fat cooking spray and heat until sizzling. Cover and turn the heat down and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Then stir in the potato, garlic and stock.
  2. Bring to the boil, season to taste then simmer gently , uncovered, for 20-25 minutes until the potato is tender and starts to break up. The soup can be cooled and chilled ahead at this stage. It can also be blended until smooth in a liquidiser if you want a creamy texture. Otherwise leave it chunky.
  3. To serve, return to a gentle boil, add the cabbage and cook for a further 3-5 minutes. Serve hot.

Notes

Cook's tip: You can add 100g of sliced mushrooms or 75g chopped ham instead of the cabbage.
