Cabbage-Vegetable Soup

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 medium leeks, white and light green parts only
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced small
  • 2 medium carrots, diced small
  • 2 celery stalks, diced small
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 medium Yukon Gold potato, peeled and diced small
  • 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 head (1 1/2 pounds) green cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves

DIRECTIONS

  1. STEP 1

    Halve leeks lengthwise; rinse thoroughly, pat dry, and cut into 1/2-inch slices. In a large Dutch oven or heavy pot, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion, carrots, and celery; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add leeks and garlic and cook, stirring, until leeks begin to soften, 2 minutes. Add potato, broth, and bay leaves and bring to a boil. Stir in cabbage and season generously with salt and pepper.

  2. STEP 2

    Return soup to a boil, then reduce to a rapid simmer. Cover and cook until vegetables are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar and thyme. Season with salt and pepper.
