Cabbage Soup

March 24, 2009


My stomach has found a new lover, ok that sounds weird but I am in love.  With cabbage soup your thinking? I know it sounds so strange but this soup is so very good.  I promise you can’t just eat one bowl, you will wake up  in the morning thinking could I eat it for breakfast that’s just how very good and addicting it is.  The soup is basic, has few ingredients but combined all together simply put, GOOD!

My Mom and I made this before we moved back in our home, and I kid you not while moving all day Friday, I ate one bowl around 10:30, 2 more at lunch time, and snuck a 4th bowl around 3:30. Is it bad to admit that? But  I just couldn’t resist the lovely, creamy, mouth watering soup.

So now I know your seriously thinking about making this.  I just know Cabbage soup sounds like the bomb, and all. I promise you won’t regret making this.

Ingredients: 1 small head of cabbage, 4-5 stalks celery, 1 onion, 4-5 potatoes, 32 oz chicken broth, 2 T brown sugar, 1 link of sausage, 1 T salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1 tsp caraway seeds, 3 cups milk and 1-2 cups heavy cream.

This makes a large amount of soup but you could easily half the recipe.


Chop celery, onions, and potatoes


Add to large stock pot along with 32 oz chicken broth- cook on till boiling then reduce to simmer until for about 15 minutes


While its cooking, chop cabbage and sausage (I used the pre cooked kind) But if your using raw, add it


Add sausage, and cabbage


add 1 T Salt and 3 cups milk


2 T brown sugar, 1 tsp caraway seeds, and 1/4 tsp pepper and cook another 25 minutes


then add 1-2 cups heavy cream, depending on the thickness you desire


stir well and serve


Enjoy with crusty bread!

Oooooooo! That looks GREAT! I wonder if it would work with chicken? Or those little meatballs.


Sweet Pea March 24, 2009 at 6:51 am

Sheila- yes I think you could easily play around with the type of meat you use, or even sans the meat.


Kristen March 24, 2009 at 8:53 am

This looks fabulous! I will definitely have to give this a try!

It DOES sound good, with the milk, heavy cream, and sausage…sounds rich and yummy! AND, since you made it, I know it will be good. You haven’t steered us wrong, yet! By the way, I got Lana cooking your sticky chicken, now! Thank you for sharing your recipe and linking up to Tempt My Tummy Tuesday

Yum! We love cabbage and I’ve never had anything like this! I’ll have to try it! Heavy cream and sausage means it can’t be be bad! LOL


Heather@JustDoingMyBest March 24, 2009 at 3:43 pm

I had my doubts based on the name, but this looks fabulous! Seems like it would be very frugal too, especially when cabbage is in season. Thanks for sharing!


Amy March 24, 2009 at 5:38 pm

I’ve been having a love affair with cabbage since I was… eh, 9 or 10? This sounds fanTAStic. Oh my GOSH.


Brenda March 24, 2009 at 7:32 pm

I love soup and that looks delicious


Lindsay March 24, 2009 at 9:41 pm

I’ve been wanting to introduce cabbage into my family’s diet, but I didn’t know where to start. Based on your reviews, this might be first on my list!

I found you at Blessed With Grace.

That looks like something we would like around here.

Well, now, I’m not a huge fan of cooked cabbage, but your post is making me a little more open-minded! Shalee also posted about fried cabbage. So maybe I’ll give it a go….thanks for the inspiration and for participating in Food on Fridays!
