I called this soup the Kika Soup after I saw it in a film about a German girl who is a witch, “Kika” . I liked the color so I made it up the day after I’d seen the film.
I also call it the Alien Tentacles Soup because it looks as if the soup is filled with alien tentacles.
We start by frying up a bit of chopped onion in olive oil. (always use olive oil)
Then add a couple of thin carrots (nicely sliced up)
And then add some chopped up potato
Then you get those beautiful cabbage leaves and wash them (I only used 3)
Nice and alien green
Cut those in thin stripes
and leave these (below) out of the cooking pot…
Add the strips to the pan
Mix it all
and then add a bit of tomato all chopped up
Now onto the spices: parsley, Nutmeg, salt
and some Pimentón Picante (hot paprika)
and then you add some water to cover it all
I cooked it for about 8 minutes in my magic pan. You will probably have to let it simmer for about half an hour.
This is the result.
This is very nice with a slice of brown bread covered in butter.
