My youngest son was sick a couple of weeks ago (remember the Nutella doughnuts?) and he likes nothing better than a thin, almost watery soup. I, on the other hand, like it so thick you can stand a spoon up in it, but seeing as it was him who was ill, the thin soup won out.
This cabbage crockpot soup recipe is so quick – just fling everything in the slow cooker and just leave it. Throw whatever vegetables in you like – I normally use whatever is going mouldy in my fridge, but carrots, potatoes and broccoli would work great, too.
I used homemade stock as I think it makes soup taste amazing. Have a look at this tutorial if you’ve never tried it before. This chicken, sweetcorn and cabbage crockpot soup is perfect as the weather cools. It is filling, has almost no fat, is clean, gluten free and really good for you. Don’t wait until you are sick to try it!
Chicken, Sweetcorn and Cabbage Crockpot Soup (Low Fat, Clean and GF)
2-3 cups of homemade chicken stock (you could use store bought varieties)
Fresh parsley for decoration (optional)
~ Throw everything into a Crockpot/slow cooker, stir and set it on low for six hours. Leave it do work its magic.
~ An hour before the soup is ready, shred the chicken with a fork, and adjust seasoning if necessary. Just before serving, sprinkle over a little fresh, chopped parsley and enjoy with a little homemade crusty rye bread .
