Author Notes: Tongue in cheek. I had a very small green cabbage in my refrigerator that was begging for some attention. A few weeks ago I made some delicious chicken stock in which I had added a 2-inch nugget of fresh ginger. For months I have been making foxesloveslemons' Korean meatballs and therefore had an ample supply of Gochujang sauce. Armed with these three main ingredients, I made a delicious cabbage soup in a matter of 30 minutes. The cabbage and chicken stock make up the Jewish part of this recipe - the Gochujang sauce and soy sauce the Asian. This is quick, with a spicy and hot undertone balanced by the sweetness of the raisins. This soup makes a great lunch or a good first course. —Bevi
