Tender cabbage and crushed tomatoes in a rich broth make for a perfect cold weather soup. Fluffy white rice brings added texture and heartiness while fresh herbs contribute a bright flavor to his veggie-packed dish. Plus, this soup freezes beautifully so you can easily make it ahead of time to save for a cold, wintery day.
