Cabbage Soup

Let me start off by saying that this vegetarian cabbage soup is so delicious! I cannot believe I waited so long to make cabbage soup. What really motivated me was the extra boiled cabbage I had from making stuffed cabbage, malfoof. It worked perfectly for this hearty and flavorful soup.

This is the most adaptable soup as it works fantastic with most vegetables! It is also so healthy and nutritious that you can just enjoy the whole pot on your own if you wish! Many people favor this soup for dieting as it is very low in calories and carbs. This also literally comes together in no time at all. It is great as is and would be just as good with shredded chicken too!

I have never been a soup person. It was never something that I craved or even looked forward to especially growing up. But as an adult, I definitely will enjoy soup much more often especially in cooler weather. It warms you up and is so light on the stomach.

Try this vegetarian cabbage soup and let me know what you think! Here are a few other soup recipes:

  • In a pot, add the olive oil and saute the garlic and onions until transluscent and fragrnat.

    Quoting my husband: “I thought this was a regular vegetable soup but it turned out SO flavorful.” I think your choice of spices elevate this soup to a new level.
    This is one recipe for the books!
