This is probably the easiest soup I’ve ever made and it was very tasty. Other ingredients can be added – I considered scallions or onions. It would also be excellent with chili sauce for a more spicy taste. You can also make it easier by not pre-cooking the garlic and simply adding oil, meat and spices to the broth.
1 qt chicken stock
4 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 tsp ground ginger (I didn’t have fresh, which I would have preferred).
1 Tbs sesame oil
1 cup pre-cooked chicken or pork, diced (I used pork)
3 cups cabbage, thinly sliced (I used Napa cabbage)
In a soup pot add sesame oil and garlic slices. On medium heat, cook garlic until translucent. Add chicken stock, ginger and meat. Simmer gently until broth comes to a boil. Add raw cabbage to soup bowl and ladle soup over the top of the cabbage. Serve.
