    Title: Sweet & Sour Cabbage Soup
    Categories: Vegetables, Herbs, Chilies, Soups
    Yield: 7 Servings

    1 lg Head cabbage
    2 Carrots
    2 Celery ribs
    1 lg Onion
    4 tb Olive oi
    6 tb Sauerkraut
    32 oz Broth of your choice
    2 tb Onion powder
    2 ts Red pepper flakes; or more
    2 ts Salt; to taste
    1 sm Cone of piloncillo *
    2 cl Garlic
    14 1/2 oz Can diced or crushed
    - tomatoes
    1 Lemon (opt)

    * Mexican brown sugar

    Chop the onion, garlic, carrots, celery, and cabbage.
    Put the onion powder, red pepper flakes and 1 teaspoon
    salt in a little bowl, so you have it ready.

    Heat a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the
    olive oil, and saute the onion until translucent. (5-7
    minutes). Add the garlic, carrots, celery and cabbage
    and continue to saute until the cabbage just starts to

    Add the spice mix (onion powder, red pepper, salt) and
    continue to saute. Add more olive oil if things start to
    dry up. Continue to saute until the spice mix is
    distributed evenly and the cabbage starts to become
    cooked through.

    Add the tomatoes, the broth of your choice and simmer
    over medium heat, covered, for about 30 minutes. The
    soup may seem too broth-y at this point, but that will
    be taken care of later.

    After 30 minutes, uncover and toss in 5-6 heaping
    tablespoons of sauerkraut. Simmer for 10-15 minutes
    more, stirring occasionally. Lower heat and toss in the
    cone of piloncillo, and stir until dissolved.

    NECESSARY: -- squeeze lemon if soup is too sweet and/or
    add more sauerkraut -- add salt if necessary -- if too
    liquidy, simmer for 10-15 minutes with lid off -- if not
    enough liquid, use tomato can as measuring cup and add

    OPTIONAL STEP: Take off heat and let sit for an hour or
    so to allow flavors to meld, and then reheat before
    serving. Or enjoy right away!

    SERVES: 6 - 8

    UDD NOTEs: Piloncillo is raw dark brown sugar compressed
    into a cone. What is available to me is either 6 or 8
    ounces per. So I substituted 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
    from my pantry. I used Swansons Beef Broth so this is
    not vegetarian. Vegetable broth is quite acceptable if
    you are keeping vegan.
