Kale, Cabbage, and Mushroom Soup
It was kind of a coolish fall day and I wanted soup. It actually doesn't have to be a cold day for me to want soup though. I love soup any time of the year. Anyway, I had mushrooms, cabbage, and frozen kale so that's what kind of soup I decided to make. Mmmm, it was yummy and hot and delicious.
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 cup onions, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
8 baby bella mushrooms, sliced
1 1/5 cup green cabbage, chopped
1/2 cup frozen kale
2 1/2 cups water
2 teaspoons McKay's Vegan Chicken Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Heat the coconut oil in a large pan on medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and stir, cooking for another minute. Add the mushrooms, lower heat to medium and cook until mushrooms are soft. Add cabbage and cook until softened. Add kale, water, chicken seasoning and spices. Bring to a simmer, lower heat and cook for about 7-10 minutes.
Ladle into bowls, add some sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
Enjoy on a cold fall's eve.
