Here’s a broth-based cabbage soup with deliciously clean flavors that
offset the richer holiday fare many of us are eating this month. Vegetable
broth is becoming more widely available in groceries, and this is a good
chance to try it.

The unusual combination of vegetables in this healthy soup are brought together beautifully with the spices. The Healthy Sauté cooking method makes it light and healthier without heating oils or compromising flavor.

1 medium onion, quartered and sliced thin
3 medium cloves garlic, chopped
1-2 tsp minced fresh chili pepper (serrano, or jalapeno)

2 TBS fresh lemon juice

1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
3 cups thinly sliced Savoy or green cabbage
