Preparation time: 18 minutes
Cooking time: 55–65 minutes

6 cups fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
1 can (15 ounces) tomatoes, no salt added
1 cup coarsely chopped celery
1 cup sliced onions
1 cup coarsely chopped carrots
1 1/2 cups sliced green cabbage
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 bay leaves
1 cup frozen, thawed green peas
1/2 cup kasha

In a large pot, add chicken broth, canned tomatoes, celery, onions, carrots, cabbage, garlic, black pepper, and bay leaves. Place on high heat and cover.

Add kasha, cover and cook an additional 5 minutes. Uncover and stir, checking to make sure adequate moisture is in pot. Add water, if necessary, to bring total volume of soup to 8 cups. Cover pot and cook an additional 5 minutes. Remove bay leaves and serve immediately.
