Chickpea Rice Soup with Cabbage Recipe (Vegan and Gluten Free)

ChickpeaSoup

ChickpeaSoupIt was my very first time using dill. Truth be told, I've never been a big fan of the herb. But I'm on board now. Fo' sure.

You may be thinking, "Johanna, I'm cool with the dill, but cabbage? Who eats that stuff"

This girl does, that's who.

Personally, I prefer red cabbage to green so that's something to note for next time I make this recipe.

I truly enjoy cruciferous veggies.  Not only does cabbage have fiber (and we all know the benefits of fiber in our diets!) but it can also brag that it's :

  • a good source of Vitamin C and manganese
  • got antioxidants (good for fighting vs free radicals.)
  • an anti-inflammatory (take that ibuprofen.)
  • got nutrients that your digestive tract will appreciate
  • team up to support heart health by providing resources to manage your cholesterol.

Should I go on?
