Cabbage Soup Recipe

This is a recipe that i made up a couple months ago. It's a pretty basic soup but i really love it and so does the boyfriend.

Bria's Cabbage Soup

10 to 12 Cups of Chicken or beef broth (or substitute with veggie broth)
4 Tbsp. Butter
4 Cloves of Garlic, minced
Medium onion, diced
3 Carrots, sliced
4 Celery stalks, sliced
1/2 Head of cabbage (yum), shredded
1 1/2 Cups of Mushrooms, sliced

Suggested seasonings (all to taste)

Cooking instrutions
In a large pot, saute the onions and garlic in butter over medium heat for about 3 minutes. Add the Cabbage and continue sauteing until cabbage is slightly softened. Add broth and bring to a boil. Add the rest of the vegetables and seasonings, reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes to insure that the veggies are soft and the broth has absorbed the flavors.

The best thing about this recipe is that it is easy to motify. Variations can include potatoes, corn, tomatoes, or whatever else you want. The most important thing is to make sure you have enough broth. This soup is especially good the next day too. try it out and tell me what you think.
