Cabbage Soup is the PERFECT savory vegetable soup made with cabbage, tomato, carrots, celery, and spices, ready in under 45 minutes!
Cabbage Soup is a savory vegetable soup made with carrots, celery, onions, cabbage, diced tomato, and spices. I’ve been making cabbage soup for years because it’s the perfect thing to make when it’s cold outside, plus you can do it in the slow cooker on days when you’re busy.
A lot of people make cabbage soup for weight loss because it’s low calorie, but my favorite part is that it’s totally inexpensive and super easy to make. I like to serve it with freshly made bread or dinner rolls, and sometimes I’ll cut up a leftover rotisserie chicken and throw that in there, too.
If I’m having this for lunch, I’ll serve it with some crackers or breadsticks and a simple salad. You can also sub the chicken broth for vegetable broth if you’re serving this to a vegetarian.
