Recipe: Cabbage Soup

This soup is one of my absolute favorites — I’m Polish, and my Gram’s Halupki (Piggies in the Blanket) are one of my favorite foods. This soup gets the same textures, tastes and smells for about 1/5 the effort. AKA: It is a masterpiece.

It also makes a TON of soup, so prepare accordingly.

And so, without further ado —
