Thanks to tasty vegetables and fire-roasted tomatoes, this recipe for cabbage soup has a rich flavor. For a straightforward, filling meal, serve it with nice bread.
This recipe for cabbage soup accomplishes the impossible by consuming an entire head of cabbage all at once!
Almost every time I purchase a cabbage, I nibble away at it for weeks, adding pieces to slaw, bowls, tacos, and other dishes. I was surprised the first time I made this recipe.
I began by incorporating half of my cabbage. It melted into the broth with the flavorful vegetables and herbs as it wilted down.
Since I was making cabbage soup, I didn’t want it to vanish, so I added more. Before I knew it, all of my cabbage had been added to the stew.
Don’t give up if you’re on the fence about cabbage. The soup is not at all overpowered by the abundance of cabbage.
Instead, it brings a touch of mild sweetness that harmonizes beautifully with a hint of sour white wine vinegar. The soup is incredibly tasty and warming as a whole. It’s easy to make, nutritious, and soup-er (sorry!). I predict you’ll adore it.

- They give the soup even more depth: garlic and dried thyme.
- Potatoes: They give the soup a great, substantial texture.

IDEAS FOR SERVING CABBAGE SOUP
Ladle the cabbage soup into bowls when you’re ready to dine, then top each one with a little fresh parsley. To make a larger meal, combine the soup with a sandwich or salad.
Alternatively, enjoy the soup on its own with nice crusty bread for soaking up the rich liquid. I adore it with this sweet potato salad or a traditional grilled cheese sandwich.
The soup freezes nicely and can be stored for up to 4 days in the refrigerator. Before transferring it to sealed containers and freezing it, let it cool fully. The shelf life of frozen cabbage soup is three months.
