I like to have a nice warm bowl of soup when it is cool cloudy outside. It seems to be leeks season, so I decided to do something delicious with them.

I’ve mentioned cabbage have many health benefits like anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cancer prevention, digestive tract and cardiovascular support. In addition to the health benefits, both leeks and cabbage, are a low carb vegetable and contains fiber, so I guess we should include them more often to our diet. They pair very well, so enjoy this comfty easy to prepare soup.
