Spicy Red Cabbage-Apple Soup

I love experimenting with ginger, nutmeg, cayenne, you name it... as in this spicy red cabbage-apple soup. Serving with a Wasa cracker and a wedge of Laughing Cow Lite Blue Cheese (it's yummy, and it ups the protein a little for this somewhat carb and sugar heavy soup)!
