She Enjoys the Harvest (Week 6)

Great basket this week! I am pretty excited about everything. I have been wanting to try fennel and we have been hoping for another melon...
  • Broccoli
  • Fennel
  • Watermelon
  • Bananas
  • Cabbage
  • Blackberries
  • Apples
  • Kiwis
  • Pears
  • Tomatoes
  • some kind of zuchini-like Squash
  • Red Peppers
Here's a recipe to share that I tried for Sunday dinner: first time ever making Cabbage Soup! I based my soup off of the recipe found here.

Rustic Cabbage Soup
  • 6 small red potatoes (leave the skins on)
  • Olive Oil
  • 1/2 large onion (sliced really thin)
  • 4 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 6 cups of chicken stock (use whatever broth you have)
  • S&P
  • Turkey Sausage (optional)
  • 1 small-medium head of cabbage, sliced 1/4" thin
  • Parmesan Cheese
Throw a couple of swishes of olive oil around the bottom of your pot. Dice up the potatoes into small pieces and cook them covered for 5-10 minutes with a pinch of salt in the oil until they are tender. Add the onion and garlic and stir around. Cook a few more minutes. Pour in the chicken stock and dice up some leftover turkey sausage if you want. Fill the pot with your shredded cabbage and cover. Cook until soft and tender over low heat. Serve with a little bit of parmesan cheese on top. It's good without the cheese, too... but every recipe needs cheese, so hey!

For being a "poor man's soup"... this stuff smells divine!
