I greet you, friends, on the pages of our site. Today we are preparing cabbage soup from Peking cabbage. Shchi is a legendary dish. It has been prepared for many centuries and has changed little in all these years. And here is our version - this is almost an isolated case of a modern reading of this legendary food. Shchi is most often cooked with boiled meat, so our cabbage soup is no exception - they are in chicken broth. But the details are later, but for now let's talk a little history.
The 19th century is considered to be the date of birth of the soup called "cabbage soup". It was then, according to historical data, that the inhabitants of Europe first learned about cabbage, which later became the basis for cooking cabbage soup and more. The name itself, according to many sources, comes from the Old Russian word "eat", which literally meant a liquid meal. The method of preparation of this soup is always the same, but the ingredients often change depending on the region. It is only important to remember that cabbage soup, like borscht, is important not just to cook, but preferably to simmer over low heat, and then insist well. The main ingredients are:
- meat or, in its absence, fish or vegetables;
- root crops;
- surely spices and seasonings;
- sour ingredient: sauerkraut, sour cream, kvass, apple kvass, etc.
But is it boiled cabbage soup? There is not a lot of such data and this is rather one of the options than the classic one, but it does take place and we are ready to tell you about it right now. So, Chinese cabbage soup - recipe:
You can talk about how useful cabbage soup is for a long time. The large amount of vegetables and roots makes this soup almost indispensable. Chicken broth is good for itself, and in the company of wonderful vegetables it becomes simply medicinal. But is it possible to cook cabbage soup from Peking cabbage, the question is probably still a rhetorical one. Skeptics will certainly insist on the classic version of the recipe using white cabbage and preferably sauerkraut, even in many ways they will be right. But the option we proposed also has the right to life, especially if a person does not like fermented vegetables. Note that options are also possible here, for example, Chinese cabbage soup with pork.
