Quick and delicious! Used kale instead of savoy, fresh chilli instead of flakes, and added 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp red wine vinegar and a few drops of chipotle Tabasco.

Lovely soup, I fried my chorizo with red onion first and used passata instead of chopped tomatoes for extra thickness, added garlic and scotch bonnet chillies, really healthy and tasty!

Very nice soup, easy to make and freezes well so worth making double. I've added an onion a few times to increase the amount of veg but works well without.

This is a staple in my house when we have cabbage to use up. The first time I cooked it my husband moaned like mad while it was cooking as he thought it sounded dreadful. He had to eat his words along with the soup when he tasted it though. Now it's one of his favourites. I've cooked it with all types of cabbage, and all types of beans such as kidney beans, mixed beans, borlotti beans and most other beans you normally have in the cupboard, all with equally good results. It also freezes very well. This is simply one of the best recipes I've ever got from this site.

The best spanish chef´s says, the best recipe are you use jus 3 to 5 ingridients, but with high quality....One of them is this, if you hide with much ingridiente a good product could be a waste the food.....The cook it´s simple, with no more 5 ingridients you can cook excelent dishes.

Great for winter. Can be varied a lot depending on which ingredients you have - garlic is a great idea ! Used caramelized red onion and pork sausages instead of chorizo.
