Warm up with a delicious bowl of red cabbage soup. Red cabbage is low in calories but high in fibre and packed full of minerals and vitamins, including Vitamin C - the cold fighting vitamin! Topped with fresh apple and crispy walnuts, this easy soup is fresh and interesting with a bit of a crunch. 

When choosing a red cabbage, look for one that is bright in colour, feels heavy and has crisp leaves.
