If you aren’t reading the fabulous Missy’s blog, My-Shitty Kitchen, then you are missing out. Today I’m sharing a Missy Recipe that I tweaked for my not-so-shitty kitchen.
The original recipe from Missy was a Brisket & Cabbage Soup. Since I’m working on making my kitchen lower in cholesterol, sugar, and fat I knew this recipe would rock out sans the brisket. I also am a HUGE cabbage fan. Cabbage is a super food! It has so many amazing properties that you should feel bad if you choose to keep it out of your diet.
I wish I could say, “After work I ran over to Missy’s had a glass of wine on the porch and asked her advice regarding tweaking this recipe.” But since she’s in NOLA and I’m in North Kackalacky it was more of a snap chat conversation.
Recently, Missy got the blood spin tests that told her her own cholesterol was stupid so she’s on a mission to lower her’s as well. She has decided to eliminate wine from her weekly routine and eat more salads. Oh and the fish oil thing = add that one in too.
For tweaks she suggested nix the brisket and use chicken sausage. Instead of beef stock use chicken.
While at the store I wasn’t pleased with the chicken sausage so I grabbed turkey.
Since the long wait on brisket to cook wasn’t in the cards for the tweak of the recipe I made this soup in twenty minutes.
It was divine! My son wasn’t a fan but this cabbage loving mother was a huge fan! Check out the recipe here on Missy’s blog and note these subs for a heart healthier soup that will make your insides smile (as well as outsides) all fall and winter long!
