Creamy Cabbage and Tomato Soup

I make this lovely belly warming soup often in the winter months. It is low calorie and perfect for after the holidays when you are trying to drop a few of those extra pounds. The taste is divine!!

8 cups GF vegetable broth
4 cups chopped cabbage
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 bay leaves (remove before pureeing)
2 tablespoons dried chives
2 teaspoons jarred minced ginger
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
Fresh ground pepper

Place all the ingredients in a heavy bottom pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Reduce heat and simmer for a couple of hours.
Remove the bay leaves and puree with an immersion blender. (If you do not have an immersion blender, puree this in batches in a blender. Do not use the blender cover or the heat will make this explode; cover the top with a towel and process the soup until pureed.)

*Please keep in mind that not all dried herbs and spices are gluten free so check the labels to make sure the brand you are using is gluten free. The same applies for prepackaged store-bought items, check the labels to be sure. If in doubt, call the toll free number on packaging to be safe and to make your cooking/eating experience is truly gluten free.
