Carrot and cabage soup

Submitted by Anushka 11 June 2009

Serves 4-6



3 small leeks,1 small white cabbage,6 large carrots,2 l vegetable stock (I used swiss vegetable bouillon),2 teaspoons cinnamon,1 teaspoon mixed spice,1-3 teaspoons ground ginger,1 teaspoon brown sugar,2 tablespoons olive oil,salt and pepper


Discard the outer leaves of the cabbage, wash it and shred it. Peel and chop the carrots. Clean and chop the leeks.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a big saucepan and let the vegetables sweat for 10 minutes.

Add the stock, bring to the boil, cover and cook for 30 minutes.

When it has cooled a little, blend the soup.

When reheating add the cinnamon, mixed spice, ginger, sugar and salt and pepper.

This makes a very smooth velvety soup.
