In a large saucepan, cook onion in olive oil until translucent.
Add garlic, frozen vegetables, potato cubes, cabbage and kale and cook for about 5 minutes.
Add the rest of the ingredients.
Simmer for at least an hour or until vegetables are cooked as you like them.
Flavor boost packets make a nice broth and you can add more water and packets if you increase the other ingredients. Substitute other vegetables, tomato varieties, or add pasta, beans or other spices to taste.
