Paleo Cooking Tip: For additional flavor, try caramelizing the onions and carrots before adding them to the soup. Roast the cabbage by itself and chop the carrots into thin strips. Combine the carrots and onions in a skillet with 1 tbsp. olive oil over medium-low heat and cook, stirring, for 20 to 30 minutes until the onions are caramelized. Add the onions and carrots to the soup just before simmering it for the last 15 minutes.
