Pritikin Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup

Anyone who ever tried the Cabbage Soup Diet for any length of time to shed a few pounds in a hurry (and who among us hasn’t tried a fad diet now and again?) wouldn’t later consider Cabbage Soup a comfort food, and yet, it actually can be.

The Pritikin Longevity Center in Florida says “There’s nothing more comforting than a bowl of Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup, but the sodium content of many recipes can be a staggering 600 mg per cup. Our Pritikin version has no added sodium but loads of deep, savory flavor.”

  3. Add coriander and black pepper. Remove sugar cane. Adjust vinegar and seasonings, if needed. Cook for 5 minutes more. Serve.
