Heat olive oil in a large stock pot over medium heat.
Once the oil is hot, add the onions, carrots and celery.
Saute for 5-7 minutes.
Add garlic and saute for another minute.
Add undrained tomatoes, chicken broth and cabbage.
Simmer for 20 to 25 minutes.
Add green beans, peas, salt, black pepper, Italian seasonings, water and red pepper flakes. Simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes.
You can add as little or much of red pepper flakes as you prefer. A little heat is good for your metabolism.
She also tends to make it in the summer when the garden is in full swing to use up those heads of cabbage that seem to multiply. If you have an extra large head of cabbage like we do from our gardens at times, you may want to use a quarter or a third of the cabbage instead of a full half.
If there's other veggies you like, add or substitute those in.
