St Patrick’s Day Recipe
Eat, drink, and be merry
Known for its hearty fare, Irish cuisine also offers vitamin-packed cabbage and fiber-filled potatoes. If you make this recipe, you’ll be lucky, because you’ll get the savory flavors of Ireland without all the calories.
Cabbage and scallions give this soup its green hue, plus a boost of vitamin C.
Heat the oil and butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the cabbage, scallions, garlic, and salt and cook until the cabbage is slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Remove 1/3 cup of the cabbage and set aside for garnishing. Add the chicken broth and potatoes and bring to a boil. Simmer, covered, until the cabbage is tender, about 15 minutes. Using a blender, puree until smooth and season to taste with additional salt, if desired. Before serving, garnish the soup with the reserved cabbage.
