Super Simple Supper Soup
Super Simple Supper Soup -- if you can say that in 2 seconds or less you deserve a big bowl of this lovely soup! I enoyed making it -- so fast yet so good! Also super economical - just super super all the way around :O) If you have never tried Tinkyada rice noodles you're in for a treat. You'd never guess they are gluten-free and have rice bran to boot. Worth picking up and adding to your food pantry!
1 tablespoon virgin olive oil
1 onion, finely diced
2 cups green cabbage, finely diced
1/2 cup broccoli pieces
1/2 cup cauliflower pieces
1 tablespoon Better than Bouillon (vegetarian no chicken soup base)
Handful of brown rice noodles (Tinkyada)
Six cups water
Directions for this soup are simple - saute first 3 ingredients for about 15 minutes while you are chopping the broccoli and cauliflower. Now add soup base, broccoli and cauliflower and simmer under about 4 cups of water for 30-45 minutes. Add another 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Then add a handful of rice noodles broken into bite size pieces. Reduce heat and simmer until noodles are done to your preference. Be prepared to want seconds -- this soup is yummy for the tummy!
Add a slice of toasted Silver Springs Chia bread (new product from Silver Hills that is wheat-free) with pate or hummus and you've got yourself a "full-meal" deal that won't break the bank or clog up your arteries !
