Add olive oil to a large pot over medium heat. Once pot is heated add onions, garlic, celery, carrots and red pepper flakes and saute for about 5 minutes or until onions are translucent.
Now, add your sliced cabbage and saute for about 10 minutes to soften it up.
Next, add your chicken stock to the pot along with the diced tomatoes, potatoes and spices and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Let simmer for about 15 minutes. While it is simmering, cut up a baguette into even slices and drizzle olive oil over top. Place under a broiler and broil until it just starts to brown.
Then flip the bread over and repeat on the other side. When bread is done remove from the oven and rub a clove of garlic on the tops of the bread.
After about 15 minutes or so, check that the potatoes are cooked and if any seasoning needs to be added.
Serve Bread with the soup when ready and enjoy!
