Ingredients
  

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage I used savoy
  • 2 medium carrots chopped
  • 2 celery stalks chopped
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas or one 15 oz. can
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 15 oz. can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste

To Serve:

  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Instructions
 

Stovetop Instructions:

  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until soft, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cabbage and cook for another 5 minutes. When the cabbage has begun to soften, add the carrots, celery, and chickpeas. Stir to combine and allow to cook for 5 minutes longer. Add the broth and canned tomatoes, and season with salt and pepper. Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for 20 minutes. If the liquid reduces too much for your taste, add another cup of broth or water. Serve hot and garnish each bowl with fresh parsley and crumbled feta.

Instant Pot Instructions:

  • Add the olive oil to Instant Pot and set to Saute mode (medium level). Add the onions and cook until soft, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cabbage and cook for another 5 minutes. When the cabbage has begun to soften, add the carrots, celery, and chickpeas. Stir to combine and allow to cook for 5 minutes longer. Add the broth and canned tomatoes, and season with salt and pepper. Press Cancel to end Saute mode, and cover the pot with the lid set to sealing position. Set to Soup mode and adjust the cooking time to 10 minutes. After the program is complete, release the pressure manually and serve immediately. Garnish each bowl with fresh parsley and crumbled feta.
