Napa Cabbage Soup

This soup is amazing. We have a friend who made this for us and it was so tasty I had to get the recipe from him. If you are like me, soups are a big part of your fall/winter menu. Sorry for the no photos but I just couldn’t wait to share with you this recipe and I didn’t take photos when we had it but will the next time for sure.

Until then try the soup and let me know how it turned out. I never thought I would like cabbage soup (which on a side note always makes me think of Charlie & The Chocolate Factory) but I was never more happy to be wrong.

Notes
Cooking times are guessed because I didn't actually time when it was made. The process is lengthy in preparation and ingredient list is long but it's so tasty, you'll forget all about that with the first bite.
