Fear Not A Cold Winters Day, Soup's On The Way!

Since before I could even cook, I have been making all sorts of cabbage soups. Usually a tomato base with a lot of vegetables that won't gunk up (potatoes especially, corn and peas don't taste good after a day) after a day. Possibly the easiest thing you can make is soup. Throw it all together, fill it up with water. Soup.

My father.. recently went on a strange shopping escapade.. buying 52 cans of soup. The chicken noodle is a classic favorite.. however the beef barley and lentil cans have not been touched. I used 3 cans of the lentils in here.

Chop 2 onions, 4 skinny carrots, 2/3 head of cabbage, 4 tomatoes.
In a large pot at medium high heat, add some olive oil to lightly cover bottom of pot, saute onions and carrots. Sweating them and cover the pot for a few minutes. Add in cabbage and stir. Throw in tomatoes and gently press the tomatoes to release juice. The pot will become dry and your veggies can brown.. water, stock, anything.. But no, not just anything today.. I poured in half a bottle of champagne. Then a small can of tomato paste and lastly, the lentil soups.
