Winter Comfort Soup

Leslye Janes


I came up with this in a pinch with what I already have in the house. It is easy and can be adjusted to any taste preference. I keep a lot of dehyderated products on board and I like TONES brand the best when using dehydrated, but you can use fresh equivelants (I do when I have them). I also like a lot of garlic and salt because I have an altered taste situation, so I will not be offended to any adjustment comments. :) It's great for the cold nights and even better the next day.

How to Make Winter Comfort Soup


  1. In a 6qt pot add first 10 ingredients and stir well.
  2. Cover and bring to a boil. Watch the pot as it may want to boil over. If this is the case, crack the lid and turn down the heat a skoash.
  3. Simmer soup at medium heat about half and hour, or until cabbage becomes somewhat translucent.
  4. Stir in the tomato paste, sea salt and the frozen pasta vegetable blend. IF you are using the non-blend option, add the frozen peas and carrots only. DO NOT ADD THE PREPARED PASTA AT THIS TIME.

    Bring to a boil
  5. (Add water to the pot at this time to make up for any loss)Boil uncovered about 10 minutes, or until the peas/carrots are done.
  6. Add pasta and enjoy.
    You may wish to add the pasta to served bowls to keep it from over cooking.
