Cranberry and Cabbage Soup
Somewhat unseasonably cool weather sparked a desire in me to make soup . Generally, during the summer, I stick with cold soups. I love gazpacho, for example. Elise has an excellent recipe for it, though I like mine on the thick side, so I cut down on the tomato juice that she calls for. But the cool weather made me think of fall, which made the fact that this soup contains cranberries - something I associate with fall and Thanksgiving - particularly appealing.
The original recipe called for adding beets, which I am not a fan of, so I simply used more cabbage. Red cabbage, red cranberry sauce and red onion. I must say that the simple ingredients blended well and it tasted great.
It was also one of the prettiest soups I've ever eaten.
