A SPICY CABBAGE SOUP THAT WON’T HAVE YOU BREATHING ACTUAL FIRE
However, there’s nuanced spicy – and then there’s volcanic, fire breathing spicy. We like spicy food when the heat elevates the dish as a whole. In this spicy cabbage soup, you’ll still taste the savory vegetable broth, boosted with umami loaded tomato paste. (That said, if you like to breathe fire, just up the dried red pepper flakes portion to suit your palate.)
Now, we also see cabbage soup as an opportunity to clear out the vegetable crisper in your refrigerator. So there’s a little wiggle room when it comes to the veggies you can use.
We’re using carrots and potatoes. And, of course, you can’t make a cabbage soup recipe without the cabbage! We’d recommend using green cabbage. It’s tough enough that it will stand up to a bit of heat in your rice cooker without falling to bits like a more delicate napa cabbage might. Green cabbage will be perfectly tender by the time you spoon it up.
Cumin is our secret weapon in the spice department. The earthy and warming properties from this particular spice balance out the fire from the aforementioned red pepper flakes.
And you’re going to love how easy it is to make this cabbage soup in your rice cooker!
