Weeknight Meals: Scandinavian Brown Cabbage Soup

Scandinavian Brown Cabbage Soup

I know cabbage isn't everyone's favorite vegetable, but this recipe may just turn you into a convert. It's rich, luxurious and hearty, without being heavy like many winter variants, perfect for a evening in.


Serves 4

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 large white cabbage (shredded)
  • 2 large carrots (peeled and diced)
  • 1 1/2 quarts beef broth
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tsp of allspice
  • Fresh parsley (chopped)
  • Parmesan

Step 1: Place a large saucepan over a medium heat, add in the butter & sugar, cook until brown, about 10-15 minutes, add the cabbage, glaze it in the sugary mix then add the carrots, cook for a further 5 minutes.

Step 2:  Add the beef broth, allspice and season to taste with the salt, bring to the boil, then simmer for a further 20 minutes. Plate up, top with Parmesan shavings, fresh parsley and a crack of black pepper.
