My Red Cabbage Soup

Inspired by a friends request for a soup, especially at this time of year, over indulgence has to be dealt with and a good left over soup will deal with this. My red cabbage and roast potato soup should help. Whatever you do remember that this is a leftover soup so you can try manage the amounts against what you have left, if you more of one thing and less of another be inventive. The basic soup is robust and will still deliver.
