This tastes like a light, spicy minestrone, minus the pasta. The nutrients found in tomatoes, cabbage, and carrots need cooking for best absorption, and beans require heat-induced softening for digestibility.

Directions
  1. In a large soup pot, combine cabbage, onion, tomatoes, carrots, zucchini, and broth. Bring to a boil; reduce heat; and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Stir in chickpeas and cook for 5 minutes longer. Stir in olive oil, basil, and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
