This is a soup that uses no broth, and so can be enjoyed by people
who shy away from soup because of the chicken broth requirement.

For about 3-4 large mugs of soup:

Take  1 large onion (red is probably too strong), half of a cabbage, and 
perhaps one large potato or 2 small ones.

Wash these well, maybe cut them up in 2 or 3 large chunks each. Put
them in a pressure cooker and cover with water. Also put maybe 2 tbsp.
of uncooked rice to give it some thickness. Put water in to just about
0.75 inch above base...  about 2 mugs. Put the lid on and cook for up
to 3 whistles.  This takes 10 minutes or less.

If you do not have a pressure cooker, then cook for a longer time I
guess (3-4 hrs?)

Let the cooked mixture cool for some time. Next you have to puree the
whole mess in a blender and then run it through a sieve.

This is the base soup. When it is warm (not hot) put in some milk and
start to heat it.  Put in salt to taste. Before serving, put in a few
drops oof vinegar.

Simple, yet hearty and yum.
