Cabbage Soup Recipe via http://typeaparent.com

This is my take on classic Polish Cabbage Soup. This recipe was created from the overwhelming desire to eat a soup that used to be served at a restaurant that went out of business.  So I googled and I yahoo’d and no avail. So I created my own recipe and this is how it came out. Not the same, but so similar it filled my soul with yummie goodness. This soup is delicious.

Ingredients
  • 1 Large Cabbage
  • 2 Tablespoons crushed red pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 1 Large Pot of Water
  • 2 Large Scallion
  • 4 Tablespoon Garlic
  • 2-3 Sticks Butter
  • 1 Large Onion
  • 2 Large Turkey Legs
  • 1 Large Bay Leaf
Instructions
  1. Fill large soup pan up with about 2 gallons of water.
  2. Cut up one large head of cabbage into slices and chop again in half. Set aside.
  3. Chop 3 large scallions and put into water, with salt, pepper, garlic, cracked black pepper and crushed red pepper.
  4. Add the turkey legs and bay leaf. In a deep saute pan, put olive oil, onion, salt, pepper and 1 stick of butter per batch.
  5. When sauted and wilted a bit, place it in the boiling soup stock. Do this until all the cabbage is in the pot.
  6. Let the soup come to a boil and then lower to a medium heat. Let cook for 2 hours.
  7. Take a spaghetti spoon and pull out cabbage and place in a food processor… just enough cabbage to fill the food processor tub, not all of the cabbage.
  8. Process the cabbage until it’s all chopped up, but not pureed. Replace it into the soup pot and stir.
  9. Let cook for 2-3 more hours. Take out the turkey bones, shred any meat that has fallen off the bone.
  10. Remove the bay leaf. Let stand for 30 minutes, to thicken and then serve with bread.
