How to make a healthy red cabbage soup with just a few ingredients.

It’s amazing what kind of easy recipes you can come up with when you only have a few basic ingredients available and no way to get more. We have been house sitting a remotely located resort in Belize for several weeks now and only been to the grocery store twice. To get to the nearest local store we have to use kayaks or hire a boat.

At this time we have a few basic food items like canned butter, tuna and ham, two bags of noodles, a bag of whole wheat flour, sugar, coffee, several packages of yeast, LaLa milk, a small bag of cookies, a few fresh vegetables, apples and several other little items like a bag of soup mix and a jar of jelly. Our spice rack consists of salt, pepper and paprika.

To accompany our healthy red cabbage soup we baked a small loaf of whole wheat bread that we topped with New Zealand made Wood Dunn Pure Creamery Butter. Yum! Who knew that butter from a can could taste so good.
