Cabbage Noodle Soup. I made this soup half a dozen times before summer hit and I thought I should blog about it before we creep into the 90's again. Our lovely friend, Emily, had her third baby in April and I needed to make something vegan for her family. No problem, but it also needed to be tomato, pepper, and eggplant-free. I wanted to make something they could easily reheat and filling for the new mama, but it was also a really busy time here so I needed something quick and easy. Cabbage Noodle Soup seemed like the way to go. I've mentioned before that cabbage is not one of our "go to" vegetables so I'm always looking for new ways to incorporate it into our diet, especially since Josie insists we buy cabbage any time she sees in the co-op produce section. This is a chickpea noodle soup with cabbage standing in for the noodles, but I couldn't help myself and added udon noodles as well (I upped the liquid a bit too).
