leek and cabbage soup

(C) TaraBeth - - NYC

Thursday Afternoon

Food: soup, made with leeks, cabbage, redskin potatoes, carrots, parsley, garlic, and tofu
Body: a 45-minute walk around Hell's kitchen
Mind: a friend from work came over, and her hilarity cracks me up every time

Today I discovered the absolutely amazing hidden gem known as Stiles Farmers Market on 9th Ave.  For less than $5, I got a head of cabbage, two carrots, two leaks, two cloves of garlic, two potatoes, and a bag of fresh parsley.  It was inexpensive, but high quality - and perfect for "working from home because of a broken subway" meal.  Add in some tofu and it's packed with nutrients and flavor; it's really a wonderful warm meal to eat on the couch!  Leave a comment if you'd like the recipe to be posted! :)

Nutritional Highlights: In 2-cups of soup: 250% daily value Vitamin A; 110% daily value Vitamin C; 20% daily value fiber; 140% daily value Vitamin K; 7 grams of protein
