I don’t know where y’all are, but it is STILL freezing in Melbourne. Last night I was huddling under a blanket and I’ve been walking around with constant cold feet. We can still eat soup here, people. Soup in December. SOUP, I tell you! If you’re cold too, you might like to warm up with this Potato and Cabbage soup with a Jalapeno Lime Twist – or Pin it for when the cooler weather hits!
If, like me, you are thinking – cabbage soup with lime? WTF? I totally understand. I did too, at first. And then I made it, and added sour cream and coriander, and whaddya know? This thing is GOOD.
I had only been in Melbourne a few months, and was regularly getting the Whole Larder Love veggie boxes. When Ro means “seasonal”, he means “seasonal“. We had more cabbage than we knew what to do with.
I started Pinning all the European recipes I could find for cabbage and potato staples. When I came across one that had cabbage and potato mixed with jalapeno and lime I was intrigued, but kind of freaked out. Remember?
I made it basically the same way as this recipe, but without the broccoli and recommended parsley or dill. I mashed some of the potato to make a heartier-looking soup and let it all simmer down to a delightful bowl of warmth. The lime really makes a huge difference, and I know what will be my go-to when Ro starts up the boxes again next year.
Is it hot where you are? I know it’s meant to be summer in the Southern Hemisphere, but it’s forgotten us down here in Melbs 🙂
