Brussel Sprouts, Broccoli, Cabbage Pasta Soup 甘蓝,西兰花,高丽菜汤

This bowl of soup is all part of the Brassica oleracea family which includes cabbage, brussel sprouts and broccoli (broccolini to be exact).

If there is only one essential tip to share for making this soup a success, it is to not over-cook the brussel sprouts and baby broccoli when they are added into the soup.

Cabbage, Brussel Sprouts, Baby Broccoli Pasta Soup (or "The Brassica Oleracea Family" Soup)甘蓝,西兰花,高丽菜汤
The base of this soup is made from leftover rotisserie chicken (Note: you can use homemade chicken stock to constitute the base; or for vegetarians, a good vegetable stock - homemade preferred if you have).

Then comes fresh ingredients such as onions, ginger, garlic, carrots, mushrooms, cabbage, baby broccoli and brussel sprouts. The leftover rotisserie chicken imparted the main savoriness while the fresh ingredients added bright and fresh flavors to bring a perfect balance.

A warm, soothing, and satisfying soup for autumn and the coming winter months.
