1 yellow onion, cut into ½ moons
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
½ jalapeno, minced
5 carrots cut into slices
6 cups of chopped up cabbage
1 large zucchini, cut into chunks
A few handfuls of baby spinach
½ cup of frozen peas
6 cups of chicken broth
1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
Juice of one lime
2 tsp of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional: Shredded chicken & avocado
In a large pot heat olive oil over medium high heat and add onions along with a pinch of salt. Allow the onions to cook for about 4-5 minutes or until translucent.
Stir in jalapeno, carrots, and garlic and cook another few minutes. You just want to give the veggies a head start before stirring in the cabbage. Combine all the veggies together before adding the broth and the tomatoes; turn the heat to high and bring to a boil.
Once your soup is at a boil bring it down to a simmer and stir in zucchini and peas. Cook for just a couple more minutes before stirring in the spinach, cilantro and fresh limejuice. Adjust seasonings and serve yourself some soup!!
I like to put a couple of ounces of pre-cooked shredded chicken at the bottom of my bowl before topping with the soup. Then I finish it off with some fresh avocado and an extra squish of limejuice…SO GOOD!
