It was a cold and blustery day (OK, maybe 50's doesn't qualify as blustery anywhere except Houston :) and I was in the mood for cabbage and white bean soup! Alas, I didn't have any white beans or potatoes. I did, however have sweet potatoes and encouraged by Suzer's attempt, I decided to press on with what I had. This is how it went:
Cooked sweet potato chunks in chicken stock. Sauteed chopped onion, garlic, leeks in grapeseed oil, add chopped savoy cabbage, generous pinch of thyme and savory with salt and pepper. Saute a bit til softening, add a bit of chicken stock and when sweet potatoes are nearly soft, add them and let finish cooking. I then added a can of chick-peas. Yummy and very comforting with a nice thick piece of crusty wholegrain bread.
YUM.

Made both of these recipes and really like one with cabbage, leeks, and chickpeas. Only thing I left out was savory as it wasn;t among my numerous spices. Have made it twice now as we do have "blustery weather" here in Chicagoland!! :-))
