For the longest time, my family celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with a feast of corned beef and cabbage. I’ve been trying to reduce my intake of red meat so this year I chose to make a really simple and flavorful cabbage soup in the spirit of the holiday.
With the exceptionally cold nights we’ve been having, nothing could be more satisfying than a warm medley of goodness. This recipe began as a simple split pea soup and turned into a gratifying thick and hearty stew.
Strolling through a farmer’s market recently, I had some random memories of taking my cousins to see the Disney/Pixar film, Ratatouille, several years ago. The star was a cute rat that also happened to be a chef.

As the movie title suggested, ratatouille was a highlighted dish. While I looked through the veggies in the market, my whimsical state of mind lead me to creating this recipe.
