Alternative cabbage soup recipe with olive oil

I am concerned about the fat and protein in the soup recipe for people who do not like tomatoes, "Viva Italia." Does it change the composition of the overall diet?

Hello!
The cabbage soup "Viva Italia" allows 3 tablespoons olive oil, some pecorino cheese and yoghurt:
cabbage soup viva italia.

I understand your concern but can assure you that you will loose considerable weight even with this kind of cabbage soup although the fat and protein content is higher than with the classic cabbage soup recipe.

All the best,
Gabriela

Can we have lemon with the cabbage soup? =]

Hi Anna,
yes you can have lemon with the cabbage soup. You may even use it as base for a salad dressing together with ma. 1 tablespoon olive oil per day.

Or use lemon for marinating your fish on day 6 or 7.

cabbage soup with Jalapenos

by Miguel
(Jacksonville, FL)

Can you add Jalapenos to the soup?

Dear Miguel,

Jalapenos are a great ingredient for the cabbage soup. These chili peppers have a burning, warm sensation when eaten and turn your soup version into a spicy and very tasty cabbage soup.

All the best,
Gabriela
