Enjoy this warming soup that can be 'dressed' up with shreds of cabbage, lean ham or even sliced mushrooms.
1/2 medium onion(s)
5 spray low-fat cooking spray
300 g potato(es)
2 clove garlic
1000 ml fresh stock
1 pinch salt
80 g cabbage
Put the onion into a medium saucepan sprayed with low fat cooking spray and heat until sizzling. Cover and turn the heat down and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Then stir in the potato, garlic and stock.
Bring to the boil, season to taste then simmer gently , uncovered, for 20-25 minutes until the potato is tender and starts to break up. The soup can be cooled and chilled ahead at this stage. It can also be blended until smooth in a liquidiser if you want a creamy texture. Otherwise leave it chunky.
To serve, return to a gentle boil, add the cabbage and cook for a further 3-5 minutes. Serve hot.
Cook's tip: You can add 100g of sliced mushrooms or 75g chopped ham instead of the cabbage.
