  • 2 boxes of unsalted chicken stock or 5-6 cups of homemade stock
  • 6 large carrots diced
  • 2 ribs of celery diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 6 medium red or yellow potatoes quartered
  • 2 cans of diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 head of thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 1 tsp dried Thyme
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 pinch of red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil plus extra for bread if making
  • Crusty bread cut up into slices and shredded parmesan cheese for serving!


  • Add olive oil to a large pot over medium heat. Once pot is heated add onions, garlic, celery, carrots and red pepper flakes and saute for about 5 minutes or until onions are translucent.
  • Now, add your sliced cabbage and saute for about 10 minutes to soften it up.
  • Next, add your chicken stock to the pot along with the diced tomatoes, potatoes and spices and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Let simmer for about 15 minutes. While it is simmering, cut up a baguette into even slices and drizzle olive oil over top. Place under a broiler and broil until it just starts to brown.
  • Then flip the bread over and repeat on the other side. When bread is done remove from the oven and rub a clove of garlic on the tops of the bread.
  • After about 15 minutes or so, check that the potatoes are cooked and if any seasoning needs to be added.
  • Serve Bread with the soup when ready and enjoy!
