- 1/3 cup Greek olive oil

Add oil to a large soup pan and set the heat to medium. Add the onions and saute for about five minutes, or until translucent. Add the celery and carrots and saute for another five or six minutes, or until the carrots just begin to get soft. Add the garlic cloves and potatoes and saute until the potatoes begin to soften. Add the cabbage, water, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper and set the heat on medium-high. Cover the pan and let the soup come to a boil. When it does, drop the heat to about two or three and simmer the soup for about one hour, until all the vegetables are soft. Add the fresh lemon juice and fresh parsley just before ladling the soup into bowls.
