Ingredients: These can be added to or left out depending on your taste.
Cabbage, leeks, tomato soup, celery, onion, green-red-or yellow peppers, garlic, yellow and/or zucchini squash, carrots, green beans, canned tomatoes, chicken or veggie stock, jalapeno salt, salt and pepper, veggie bouillon, olive oil, bacon drippings only if you want for a little flavor, and bay leaves.
I saute the cabbabe, leeks, onions, peppers and any of the other veggies I want. I use olive oil but sometimes add 2 tsp to 1 tbls of bacon drippings for a little flavor. You really don't have to saute the veggies but I like the flavor and the smell in the house is awesome.
Let is simmer for an hour or two and I serve with grilled cheese sandwiches. Great on this icy cold day. Enjoy. I'm actually taking part of this to a friend who had hip replacement surgery last week.
