Pickled Cabbage Soup
Pickled Cabbage Soup is a delicious, hearty, and comforting Armenian dish that will keep you coming back for seconds (and thirds)! The medley of different flavors—thanks primarily to the tanginess of the pickled cabbage and savouriness of the tomato and red pepper pastes—come together perfectly to offer a unique result that is sure to impress your tastebuds. This recipe makes about six generous servings, so you can also enjoy leftovers for days to come!
Heat the oil in the pot and sauté the onions.
Once the onion is cooked, add the tomato paste and mix well.
Add the pickled cabbage and allow it to heat up for a few minutes.
Add the potatoes and enough boiled water to completely cover the vegetables, about 5 cups.
Cook on low-medium heat, covered, until the potatoes soften completely, around 15 to 20 minutes.
Add the bulgur, spices and another cup of boiled water if necessary, and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, covered.
Turn off the heat and allow the soup to sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
Serve with chopped parsley and enjoy!
