While the east coast gets blasted with snow, what could be better than a steaming hot bowl of soup enjoyed by the fire? Here is a great winter white soup perfect for a cold and chilly snowy day. While not all of the ingredients start out white, the finished soup has a white color. Follow the directions below!
1 Leek, cleaned
1/4 Onion, chopped (not pictured)
1-2 Stalk of Celery, chopped
1/2 Cup Asparagus, chopped
1 Can of Chick Peas
1/4 Head of Cabbage
Salt and Pepper to taste
Add about 2 TBSP EVOO to pot on stove
Once hot, saute garlic
Add chopped celery, asparagus, and onion
Stir in salt and pepper
Leeks, cabbage, and chick peas in the pot
Once vegetables and chick peas are sauteed, add chicken stock and salt and pepper
Once chicken stock boils, reduce to simmer and let cook for approximately 15-30 minutes (the long the soup cooks, the more the flavors will come together)
Spoon into bowl and top with shaved Parmesan cheese!
