1 pound ground beef
1 large onion, sliced
1 large garlic, halved
1 1/2 pounds cabbage, cut in chunks (about 7 cups)
2 - 3 carrots, sliced thin (more if you like carrots)
1 medium bay leaf
1 teaspoon thyme
4 cups water (more if you like lots of broth)
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/4 cup instant mashed potato (optional)

In large pot over medium heat, cook beef, onions and garlic stirring to break up meat, until beef is browned. Drain off fat. Add cabbage, carrots, bay leaf and thyme. Cook, stirring often, 10 minutes. Stir in water, salt and pepper. Bring to boil; reduce heat; cover; simmer 10 minutes or until cabbage and carrots are crisp-tender. Stir in parsley. Remove bay leaf. Stir in instant potatoes to thicken.
