Have you ever eaten red cabbage and oranges together? It may sound unusual, but the two are truly delicious when paired. With this red cabbage soup with orange sauce, we'll prove it to you, and we hope you'll have a new favourite soup to share with your loved ones.
This soup is going to be vegan (dairy-free), weight-loss-friendly, and packed with nutrients — à la Foodaciously. The main ingredients we used are red cabbage, white beans, beets and oranges. It's a vitamin, fibres, and proteins bonanza!
Cabbages and beets give this dish the most beautiful purple colour. To give the soup an even fancier look, we blended the veggies into a smooth velouté.
On top of being pretty, this soup is very healthy. Cabbages and beets, like other purple veggies, contain pigments called anthocyanins. These compounds are a class of phytonutrients that is rich with antioxidants. Antioxidants keep your cells healthy and strong and help you fight the decaying effect of ageing. Sign me up, right?
Oranges don't play around when it comes to health either. They are a rich source of vitamin C. There are many benefits to this vitamin, but it's particularly good in vegan diets as it helps better absorb iron from plant-based ingredients, like white beans.
So, are you ready for this healthy red cabbage soup? It's ready in only 30 minutes! Just follow along with our easy recipe and slurp it down with much gusto.
