Chickpea and Cabbage Soup

I had 1/2 a head of cabbage so I googled some ideas and came across this incredibly delicious soup!  The best part was I had all the ingredients to make it except the optional pine nuts and it looked super simple to make!

Not only is this recipe great for St. Patrick’s Day with the cabbage, but it is a great soup to enjoy on a cooler day now since we are SO close to spring and will soon be craving salads, smoothies, and fresh fruit! Not like I don’t crave that stuff now, but in the summer you’re more likely to eat those foods than you are to eat soups.
