Ingredients

1

Heat your oil in a large oven, add garlic, large onion, leek, carrot, and salt. Cook, stirring until the vegetables start to brown. Then, reduce the heat and continue cooking the veggies, stirring, until they are very soft and caramelized.

2

Add the paprika, thyme, carraway and pepper and cook – stirring – until the spices are fragrant.

3

Deglaze the large pot with lemon juice, stirring and cooking until the liquid is evaporated.

4

Add the canned tomatoes, stock or broth, raw cabbage, and celery. Increase the heat, cover, and bring the soup to a simmer.

5

Once the soup comes to a simmer, tilt the lid to an askew position, reduce the heat, and continue simmering gently. All the while, stirring occasionally until the cabbage is meltingly tender.

6

Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the lemon zest and dill. Serve your cabbage soup drizzled with a little olive oil if desired.

Enjoy!
