This fantastic soup recipe was given to me by a friend who runs a restaurant in the Spanish town where I live. Believe me...you will be hooked after the first spoonful.

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add carrot, cabbage, cauliflower and leeks. Cook, stirring constantly, for a few minutes until cabbage wilts. Stir in the garlic and tomato paste, and continue to cook for another minute or two, stirring constantly to prevent the garlic from burning. Stir in 2 cups of water, then cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Pour in the diced tomatoes and the remaining 2 cups of water, and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Reserve 2 cups of the liquid, and puree the remaining soup in a blender or food processor. Return the blended mixture to the reserved liquid, and stir in milk and butter. Return to a boil, and cook for 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve.

I made this following the recipe almost exactly. I did use veggie broth instead of the water. This is a delicious, soothing soup! It's mild tasting but still has lots of flavor, and my husband liked it, even though he claims to hate cauliflower and cabbage. It was very good with grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. I know I will be making this one again.

I gave this recipe only three stars because there is a problem with the amount of water--....if I try it again I'll use a lot less water...

This soup is really good! In fact, my very picky husband actually said it is "unbelievably good"! I tweaked the recipe a bit: I used half as much cabbage as called for in the recipe. I also used almost a whole small can of tomato paste and increased the amount of milk to 3/4 cup. The can of diced tomatoes I used had Italian seasonings (basil, oregano and something else I can't think of off the top of my head). I also added some Italian seasoning.
