Spicy Cabbage Soup

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. Feel free to add more spices and chili pepper if you like it spicier. If you have the time, let this soup simmer for a little longer for a richer taste.
