Paleo Cabbage and Sausage Soup
Picture was before Paleo Days, so pretend you do not see red potatoes and Navy Beans.
1 320z container organic reduced sodium vegetable broth
1-2 cups water (start with 1, you will want everything immersed in liquid)
2 tbsp(s) minced garlic
2 tsp(s) pepper
1 tbsp bay leaves
1 tbsp basil
4-5 stalks celery, washed and chopped
1 yellow onion, sliced in rings and rings cut in half
Simmer all of the above in a large pot with a lid for about 30 minutes
Add to following to the vegetable pot
2 tomatoes washed and diced
1 head of green cabbage washed and diced
1 package Turkey Smoked Sausage chopped into bite size pieces (you could also use cooked ground sausage if you prefer as it is less processed)
Simmer on Medium Low for about 10 minutes or until all vegetables are tender.
Taste as you simmer and add more of any of the seasonings to fit your preference. Thyme and Bay Leaves can easily take over the flavor of the soup, so add slowly if you add additional seasoning. Using Vegetable broth will reduce the sodium drastically, but you will need to offset by adding more sodium free seasonings.
