Quick Cabbage Soup

By: Esther Vasa

This is a nice, comforting and healing soup. Cabbage belongs to Brassica Vegetables or Cruciferous Vegetables. It has cancer fighting phytonutrients called sulfuraphane and indoles. Sulfuraphane increases the body’s ability to detoxify carcinogenic substances that cause cancer. Indoles suppress the growth of tumors and inhibit cancer cell metastasis. It is also good for digestive and intestinal issues. Today I needed this and it took me less than half-hour from start to finish.
