Nutritional values

With its giant portion of fibre, the Italian-influenced stew fills you up for a long time without putting a strain on your body. And because the vegetable soup only has to cook so briefly, plenty of vitamins are retained.

If you don't get pointed cabbage, you can very well replace it with savoy cabbage or Chinese cabbage. White cabbage is also a tasty alternative, but because of its coarser structure it is better to cut it very finely. You can take the Italian vegetable soup to work the next day as a Meal Prep dish, warm it up a second time and enjoy it again.
