Big Bowl of Purple

Not a huge fan of cabbage and I don’t have much experience with making tasty cabbage things.

Had this red cabbage in the fridge for a while, and needed a quick way to dispose of it. I found a recipe on the internet for red cabbage soup – 1 red cabbage, washed & shredded, 1 onion, 2 potatoes, water, and seasoning. I’m still nervous about eating many foods due to the new braces, so thought soup would be safe for my teefs. I therefore deciced to blend the soup with the hand held stick blender rather than have a chunky soup that requires any chewing.

Sounded easy as, so went with it. I was a but dubious about cabbage soup, but what we ended up with was a lot of purple stuff that tasted of nothing but potato. Blandest soup ever! Ony a massive dollop of sour cream & toast slathered with butter picks it up to something flavourful. It does look cool tho.Purple

After having seen the photo, perhaps cool isn’t really right word. Ugh.

  1. Yeah, it wasn’t horrible – it just tasted like potato and I wondered where the cabbage went. I pondered spicing it up a bit by adding some more stuff, but I didn’t want it to turn into brown moosh. The colour was quite interesting – it looked exactly like the berry yoghurt we get and reminded me of the purple potatoes we used to get from the organic co-op which I used to make awesome purple potato salad with. In the end, with the sour cream, it was just like eating a purple potato with sour cream. The worst thing about the soup was the photo I took.
