Microwave Cabbage Soup for Licia

This soup is very nutritious and low in calories.

1 large cabbage
1-2 cans low fat chicken broth
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 stalks celery with leaves, strung and chopped
4-5 cloves garlic, diced
8-10 baby carrots
1 can butter beans, drained & rinsed
1 can diced tomatoes with juice
cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped
salt & pepper

Clean outer leaves from cabbage, cut into quarters and remove core. Cut in 1-2 wedges, then cut wedges in half. Put in a large microwavable bowl, pour chicken broth over top, splash on olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Cook, turning cabbage with tongs, until cabbage begins to shrink up. Add remaining ingredients and cook until all is crisp tender. Adjust seasoning.

Serve with crusty bread to mop up juices.

*You can also make this soup in a pan on top of the stove, but I think the vegetables keep their integrity
better when done in the nuke.
*You can add potatoes and sausage, bacon or ham, but the whole point of the recipe (for me) is to save fat & calories. It's awfully good served with a slice of Velveeta Lite (30 calories) melted on top.
