Cabbage and Potato Soup

Hopefully this one doesn't look too similar to the last one. We added lentils again for a bit of protein, but it would be fine without them. The cinnamon stick adds a very different flavor, and cabbage is my current new-found vegetable.

Hellooo little have an appointment,  with my stomach! 

1/2 onion
enough olive oil to coat the bottom of your pot
4 garlic cloves sliced - leave big enough that they will pop up as a tasty morsel in your soup
1/2 green cabbage chopped
2 medium potatoes cubed
1 can stewed tomatoes- you may need to chop these but be careful not to lose the juice. You want that for your broth.
1/2 cup lentils (optional)
8 cups water
3 small bay leaves
1 cinnamon stick
*basil to your liking
salt and pepper to taste

Heat olive oil in pan then begin sauteing garlic for a minute or two. Add and saute onions & cabbage for  5-10 minutes. The Cabbage needs a bit of time to begin to soften and wilt. Add salt, ground pepper and basil. It will smell awesome- you're welcome.

Add water, tomatoes, potatoes, lentils if you are using them, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil then simmer for about 30 minutes.

Made three hearty meals for two people. Probably more if you added bread in there.

*some of the recipes I was looking at called for dill, but we didn't have any and I hate leaving the house.
