 Cabbage Soup


1 head cabbage, shredded or chopped

2 large onions, chopped

16-28 ounces canned tomatoes, chopped

2 green peppers

4 stalks celery

1-2 packages Lipton onion soup mix, or any dry onion soup mix (optional)

black pepper

any fresh herb(s) of your choice, chopped

6 carrots, sliced

1/2 pound green beans, sliced on diagonal

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar (optional)


Put all vegetables in a big pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, stir in the soup mix (if desired), and boil gently for 10 minutes. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until all the vegetables are soft. Stir in the black pepper and chopped herbs (saving some for garnish).

Eat as much of the soup as you like, as often as you like. Drink as much water as you like and non-caloric drinks including coffee, tea, and herbal teas.
