Use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and omit the kielbasa for the vegetarian version.
Farmhouse Cabbage Soup
Heat canola oil in a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook 4 to 5 minutes or until it begins to soften. Add the carrot and celery and cook another 4 to 5 minutes or until softened.
Add the chicken broth, tomatoes, tomato or vegetable juice, cabbage, kielbasa, garlic, paprika and curry powder. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover slightly and cook until the cabbage is tender, approximately 20 to 25 minutes.
Add the beans and heat through. Adjust seasoning if necessary and add salt and black pepper to taste. Stir in parsley.
