I have to admit...I'm a cabbage soup lover but I don't like my cabbage soup bland. Some people like it with just cabbage and stewed tomatoes and if that floats your boat, that's cool. But the chunkier it is (with more vegetables) the more apt I am to eat cabbage soup because I'll stay full a little longer.
So I'm going to share my Best Ever Cabbage Soup recipe with you.
Feel free to add ingredients to it or even take something away if you don't like it.
You can even add ground turkey meat if you like.
Some people refuse to eat anything without protein so it's really up to you. It's going to be low calorie anyway so ground turkey won't hurt it as long as you drain the turkey meat well. I'd even rinse it with warm water to make sure I got the "grease" out of it.
Keep in mind that you can also add ground beef or sausage but of course, you'll also have more calories.
So here's my recipe if you like chunky cabbage soup...
- Start with 3 cups of non-fat beef broth. If you prefer chicken, that's fine but the beef broth is more flavorful.
- You'll need one head of cabbage, quartered and then separated.
- You'll need non stick cooking spray. Olive or butter flavored is fine.
- You'll need 2 cloves of garlic, chopped.
- 1/2 cup chopped onion. I prefer red onions because they have more flavor.
- 1/2 cup chopped carrots.
- 1/2 cup chopped zuchhini.
- 1/2 cup green beans.
- 1/2 cup yellow squash.
- 1/2 cup mushrooms.
- 1 can of stewed tomatoes.
- 1/2 teaspoon of basil.
- 1/2 teaspoon of oregano.
- Salt and pepper.
Now that you've got all of your ingredients (except the cabbage and green beans)...spray a pan with your non-stick cooking spray and add all of your vegetables and your seasonings. Let them saute for 5 to 10 minutes until your veggies are tender and your onions are glistening.
Put your cabbage in a pot with your broth and let it come to a boil. Once your pot is boiling, reduce to a simmer and add your veggies from the pan.
Let it simmer until the cabbage is tender and and VOILA...best cabbage soup ever!!
