I love nature’s nutritional powerhouse vegetables and red cabbage is definitely one of them. As well as boosting your immune system, helping to reduce signs of aging and promoting good health of skin, it also makes your meals look more vibrant and thus more fun. This recipe makes a good family size batch but you can freeze some portions to use at a later date.
Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:
Be careful with the over use of artificial sweeteners like xylityol, though - too much can cause GI issues like bloating. If you don't need that extra sweetness, think about omitting.

Red Cabbage and Celery Soup
½ medium size red cabbage, thinly sliced
4 celery stalks, finely chopped
1 large white onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 green apple, finely grated
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 liter vegetable stock
1 teaspoon xylityol or any other sweetener of choice (add more if you prefer it sweeter)
Freshly parsley for garnish
Greek yogurt for garnish
Salt & pepper to taste
1. In a big pan fry the onion with 1 tbsp olive oil over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes until it’s just softened.
2. Add the garlic and cook for another minute, stirring continuously to ensure the garlic doesn’t burn.
3. Add the red cabbage, celery, grated apple, paprika, xylitol, salt & pepper and stir well.
4. Cover with a lid and sweat for around 10 minutes.
5. Stir in the vinegar and vegetable stock, cover with a lid and simmer for around 30 minutes.
6. Blend the soup in a food processor until smooth. If the soup is too thick, add more water to achieve the desired consistency. You might want to taste the soup at this stage and add more seasoning if required.
7. Serve with a dollop of Greek yoghurt or crème fresh and chopped parsley.
