Cabbage Potato Soupy Goodness-For a Non Soup Person
3 strips bacon
1/2 a head of cabbage (chopped)
2 potatoes (small cubes)
1 small onion
2 cloves garlic (smashed)
1 cup white wine
6 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
I fried the bacon and chopped it into little bits. In the bacon fat, I sauteed the onions and garlic until caramelized. Then I added the chopped cabbage and covered it all with the bacon goodness. Once the cabbage had wilted a bit, I added the potatoes and cup of white wine. Mixing it as it boiled, I added the chicken broth and water, brought it to a rapid boil, covered it and let it simmer for an hour.
Soup is not my favorite food; however, today was different. This soup hit a home run for me, and broke the ice between me and Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
