Monster Soup (Warm & Savory) | The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

          Some of you may remember my previous monster soup post, which was a chilled and fruity version––now I'm finally sharing my warm and savory version! This is a simple and tasty cabbage soup that doesn't take much time to prepare.

Note: To give the soup a more vibrant color, feel free to add in a few peeled and chopped pieces of beet along with the cabbage in the boiling stage, or a couple of canned (already soft) beet chunks during the simmering stage, or add in a little bit of beet juice during the blending stage! (I didn't have beets when I made this, but it would add a nice color zing. I used pomegranate juice for the fruity version.)

Monster Soup
(Warm & Savory version)

½ Head Red/Purple Cabbage, chopped
1 Lrg. Onion, chopped
2 Cups Vegetable Broth
2 Cups Water
2 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
~¼ Cup Olive Oil
2 tsp. Salt
Cracked Pepper
Heavy Cream (or coconut cream, or Greek yogurt w/ a tiny bit of milk)
Minced Fresh Chives or Flat-leaf Parsley

In a large pot, combine 1 Tbsp. oil with the minced garlic & sauté until golden. Add in the chopped onion & cook until tender. Add the broth, water, cabbage, & 1 tsp. salt & bring to a low boil. Turn down to a simmer & cover, cooking for about 10 minutes.

In batches, transfer the soup to a standing blender, adding about 1 Tbsp. oil to each batch, & blend on low-medium speed with a towel on the top (so steam can escape) until smooth.

Pour the soup into serving bowls & spoon on little dots of cream in a wide ring around the center. Drag a toothpick through the dots to create heart/leaf shapes. Top with a sprinkling of minced chives or parsley in the center of the cream ring. Good served with hearty bread, or toasted garlic bread.
