This soup offers the perfect chilly weather meal that requires few ingredients – five main ingredients, in fact. Spiced with the essentials of salt, pepper, Cayenne, and garlic, the healthy, filling soup can help you use up a bummer crop of cabbage or that massive five-pound bag of potatoes you caught on sale.
