Fasting baked cabbage soup

Fasting cabbage soup in the oven

Fasting baked cabbage soup is one of the laziest and simplest soup recipes, but that doesn't mean they lack in taste. They taste like the cabbage soup cooked in a traditional Russian stove by our grandmothers. Cooking the soup in the oven involves slow simmering, which gives it a distinctive flavor and aroma. The method of preparing the fasting cabbage soup is extremely simple - all the vegetables are chopped, layered, seasoned, then boiled water is poured over them, and they are cooked in the oven. There is no need to watch or stir them, as they practically cook themselves. Instead of water, you can use broth, but the vegetables during the slow simmering process transform the water into a delicious vegetable broth, so in my opinion, it is unnecessary, although it is a matter of taste. The more varied the vegetables (potatoes, celery root or parsley, turnip or parsnip), the more interesting and flavorful the dish becomes. Try the fasting cabbage soup using my favorite recipe.

Prepare all the ingredients for the fasting soup in the oven. Choose dense, late varieties of cabbage. Young cabbage is not suitable for this recipe. You can replace some fresh cabbage with sauerkraut, which will give the soup a pronounced sourness. You can use any mushrooms - fresh, frozen, or dried. Forest mushrooms are especially tasty, but if they are not in season, you can use champignons or oyster mushrooms, as well as their mix. The more different flavors, the richer and more varied the soup will be. You can increase the amount of mushrooms if you are a mushroom lover. You can add other root vegetables to the soup - celery root, turnip, parsley root, parsnip. You can replace the potatoes with them. You can also add dried herbs to the fasting soup according to your taste - parsley, dill, celery, as well as peas, paprika, cumin, etc. Use vegetable oil with a neutral aroma that can be heated. Fasting soup is cooked with water, but you can replace it with vegetable broth if desired.

Then pour in enough boiling water to cover the vegetables by 3 - 4 cm. The amount of water depends on how thick you like the soup. The liquid in the fasting soup cooked in the oven does not boil or evaporate, so only add the necessary amount of water so that the soup is not too thin. Cover the pot with a lid and place it in a preheated oven at 180°C for 1.5 hours. In the last half hour, reduce the temperature to 150°C.
