# 183 Fridays recipes: Savoy cabbage soup with spicy chorizo

I can't explain why but I always associate soup with Winter and during the cold season I make a fresh pot of soup every 2 to 3 days. I usually keep it simple, lots of vegetables cooked in boiling water with a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil.

This soup however has had a little twist added in the form of a few slices of spicy Spanish style chorizo. If you like really spicy food just add more chorizo.

Savoy cabbage soup with spicy chorizo

3 big courgettes
3 big carrots
1/2 butternut squash
1 parsnip
2 chicken stock cubes
1/2 Savoy cabbage, shredded
A few slices of spicy Spanish chorizo
Olive oil
Pinch of salt

Peel, chop and put in a pot all of the vegetables listed above except for the cabbage. Cover with water, add the stock cubes and bring to boil then let it simmer over a low heat for about 30-40 minutes. Add a pinch of salt if needed, drizzle some olive oil and blend. Add the shredded cabbage and the slices of chorizo and simmer for another 15 minutes or until the cabbage is cooked.
