Cabbage &Chickpea soup

Spiced Cabbage  and Chickpea soup

The flight home gave me a viscious cold , so made some hearty soup using a tasty cabbage from my vegebox . The vegebox has challenged me a great deal over the past year with cabbages . Thought they did really brighten things up in Spring when it felt like I hadn’t had anything green for a couple of months , I did slightly sigh. As in the Portugese Kale Soup a favourite of mine , the cabbage provides a nice chewiness , while the chickpeas pretty much dissolve . Also a good change to use on of the bowls I brought back from Turkey .

This is again a bit Turkish inspired by a recipe for Cabbage and Carraway Soup in Casa Moro

Cabbage and Chickpea Soup

1 small onion – finely chopped
4 cloves of garlic – finely chopped
1 tin of plum tomatoes
1 tin of chick peas
Half a Cabbage – sliced into strips
2 tablespoons of cumin seeds
2 large handfuls of Flat Leaf Parsley – roughly chopped
Salt and Pepper

Gently fry the onions , garlic and cumin in olive oil
Once soft add the tomatoes , chick peas cabbage and half the parsley
Simmer for 20 minutes or until the cabbage is soft .
Season with salt and pepper
Serve with fresh parsley over the top of the soup
