Coleslaw Soup – red cabbage and apple, 24p-36p

Not literally, you understand – bleh! (Though of course, if anyone has any good experiences of blending coleslaw into a soup, please correct me.)

In any case, I stumbled upon this recipe when I made a batch of coleslaw and had half a red cabbage left to use up. It wasn’t quite the right time of year for pickled red cabbage, nor did I want yet more coleslaw… feeling distinctly uninspired, I threw all the leftover veg from my fridge into the soup pan and made this. It remains one of my favourite soupy offerings – both earthy and sweet.

Prices are from Tesco via mysupermarket 🙂

So, you need:

  • 2 apples – 28p (ish, using Gala apples)
  • Half a red cabbage – 26p (ish – 80p per kg)
  • 1 diced onion – 16p (ish)
  • 1 vegetable stock cube – 2p
  • WaterYou can also add a tablespoon of yogurt/dash of milk if you like a creamier soup.

Total: 72p. Will feed 2 hungry people (36p) or 3 not so hungry folks (24p).

Finely chop your onion and apple, and shred your cabbage.  Put the lot in a pan with enough water to cover and toss in your stock cube. Simmer until the apples dissolve and then blend. Season to taste.

Lovely!
