Cabbage and Ham Soup -- Makes About 3 Quarts

2 teaspoons of canola oil

1 large chopped onion

2-3 cups of ham chopped into 1/2-1-inch pieces

14-16-ounce package of cole slaw mix (preferably with carrots)

1 28-ounce can of diced tomatoes

3 1/2 - 4 cups of water

1 8-ounce can of tomato sauce

1/4 cup of cider vinegar

1/3 cup of raisins

1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce

1/4 teaspoon of pepper

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder

1 teaspoon of dried parsley

1/2 cup of rice

In a large Dutch oven heat the oil until hot. Add the onion and saute it for about 5 minutes to soften it. Add the ham and saute it for about 5 minutes until it browns a little. Stir in the cole slaw mix and saute it with the onion and ham for a few minutes until it wilts down by about half. Stir in the remaining ingredients and bring everything to a boil. Stir the soup mixture and reduce the heat to medium low. Cover the pot and let the soup simmer, stirring it occasionally, until the rice and vegetables are tender--about 30 minutes.
