Made this tonight: http://recipes.coles.com.au/recipes/...-cabbage-soup/
really yum and very healthy and quite easy considering you make everything from scratch. Really recommend it, the cabbage tastes great - my daughter said she would hate it but ate 3 serves.
Does anyone have a good minestrone recipe?
Pea and ham soup. Ham hock (about $11) bag of split peas ($1.50) a stock cube ($0.50) 2 cloves of garlic ($0.25) 2 x carrots ($0.20) 2 x celery stalks ($0.50) and 2 bay leaves.
Other than rinsing the split peas, you just chuck it all in the slow cooker and wait!
$14 - feeds the 4 of us for 2 meals with maybe a little left over, and the kids love it!
