On our honeymoon in 2002, my husband and I visited Darina Allen’s farm and cooking school called Ballymaloe in Ireland.  We had a memorable lunch that included this soup.  It’s a soup I make regularly and it always hits the spot!

Serves 4

  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 yellow potatoes, peeled and diced
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 C. chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1/2 head of Napa cabbage leaves
  • 1/2 C. cream
  • 2 T. canola oil
  • 1 T. mustard seeds
  • 1/2 t. red pepper flakes
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
