A dark and dreary day.
Rain is falling.
The perfect time to warm up with a hearty bowl of homemade soup.
Cabbage and Bean Soup
Navy or Northern Beans
Smoked sausage or Kielbasa sliced
28oz can of whole tomatoes
Salt and Pepper
Basil and thyme to taste.
Soak beans overnight, discard water, add chicken stock, ham hock, smoked sausage, herbs, and seasoning, bring to the boil and then simmer for one hour.
Add chopped cabbage, onions, carrots, celery, chopped tomatoes, continue to simmer for an additional hour and a half.
Add water if needed.
Serve with buttermilk cornbread, or a nice crusty French loaf.
