This recipe came from one of Ryan's employees the one I talk about in this post. It needed very little healthifying and it turned out excellent! ENJOY!
2 heaping Tablespoons of Veggie Broth Powder
3 Tablespoons coconut or olive oil
1 cup cabbage, chopped
1 cup potatoes, diced
1/2 cup carrots, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1 onion, chopped
1-2 cloves garlic, if desired
1 1/2 cups canned or bottled tomatoes
1 cups cooked or canned beets, diced
1/2 cup juice from the can of beets or cooking water
1 teaspoon vinegar
In a large heavy pan, add oil and lightly saute cabbage, potatoes, carrots, celery and onion for approximately 5 minutes. While doing this add garlic if desired. Then add water and broth powder.
Blend tomatoes in blender. Add pureed tomatoes and beet juice to the soup. Cover and simmer over low heat until vegetables are firmly tender but not soft. Next add the chopped beets and vinegar. Season well with salt and pepper and remove from heat before the beets begin to lose their color.
