cabbage, 1/2 head
garlic (herbs if I have them, fresh or dried)
celery, 2-3 stalks
kale, 1/2 bunch, stems seperated and included
stock, only 2 cups ( I use home made)
Saute in 1-2 tbl. olive oil for 5-10 min. You can see the bottom of the pan where the veggies start to carmelize, this is when I add the garlic and any herbs I might be using, (garlic is pictured in the pan at the lower right corner). Continue cooking for 2 min., and then add;
This is why I call it stew, because there's more veggies than stock!
I have to go do my Saturday snatch workout in 10 min., but I can elaborate more about my soup/stew meal, and how I vary it on another post.
But this is the basic veg base soup for which I assemble many other additions and change the protein/carb ingredients based on what I have in my fridge, or my nutritional needs, on any day. This is 1/2 a recipe, I usually double this, but I made it, and took pictures early Friday morning, before I went to the beach. It took about 35 min. to prep and cook.
PS When I posted my lunch the other day, I added 1/2 cup balck beans (canned), and a grilled chicken thigh (cut up), to one serving of this basic recipe.
