1 Large Jug of V-8 Juice
1 16 oz bag of frozen vegetables
1 half head of cabbage - chopped bite size
1. Put all ingredients in a dutch oven, mixing well.
2. Bring to a boil; lower heat and simmer. Cover.
3. Simmer for approximately 2 hours or until cabbage is soft and translucent.
Serves 5 with a bit of leftovers.
-This can be made in a crockpot on low, but you need to add about another half of a bottle of the juice as it tends to evaporate during cooking. Set on low for 6 hours. [No need to bring it to a boil.]
-You can add [dried] cheese tortellini during the last half hour of cooking [either method] - but it doesn't need it, really.
C - Cheap to make [cabbage @ $1.00, veggies @1.00 and V-8 @ 3.50 = $5.50]
H - Healthy - V-8 and veggies? Yep!
E - Easy - [seriously, right?]
Q - Quick - Quick to prepare! And it smells so good cooking.
This sounds like a meh! sort of recipe, but you would be surprised at how delicious it is and how much kids love it. It gets it's kick from the V-8. Serve with a grilled cheese sandwich. Yum!
