    Apple swap

    Try swapping out the apples in this recipe for pears. Just like the apples, the subtle sweetness of pears helps balance out the earthiness of the cabbage.

      Directions

      01

      In large saucepan, heat grapeseed oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté, stirring often, until softened and translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in cabbage, potato, apples, vinegar, vegetable stock, and salt. Bring mixture to a gentle boil, lower heat to medium-low, cover, and let slowly simmer until cabbage is tender, about 15 minutes.

      02

      Working in batches, if necessary, in blender, purée soup until very smooth. Return back to saucepan and warm over medium heat. Taste and adjust seasoning, as desired.

      03

      To serve, divide soup among 4 serving bowls. Swirl 1 Tbsp (15 mL) sour cream into each bowl of soup and top with a sprinkle of shredded raw cabbage. Enjoy while warm.
