The first recipe I want to share with you is my country cabbage soup. It’s an extremely easy and economical recipe. It’s also very versatile. When it’s cold outside I want soup and I’ve learned from my mom how to make very good soup!

One of my favorite vegetables is cabbage. It’s cheap, yummy, and can be used in a variety of ways. If you have leftover cabbage, make cabbage soup! If you have a head of cabbage that you just want to turn into something yummy, make soup!

This recipe whips up quickly. I let mine simmer about an hour. Remember, the longer it simmers, the more flavorful it gets!

  4. 1/2 white onion, chopped
  5. 4 cloves of garlic, minced

  10. Optional, cooked, diced bacon
  11. Shredded parmesan cheese
  1. Heat olive oil in a soup pot. Add chopped red potatoes and let cook until they begin to brown. Add in onion and garlic and cook a few minutes until they begin to soften. Add cabbage. Pour in chicken stock, beans, tomatoes, and seasonings. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer for at least 30 minutes. Taste, adjust seasonings. Top with shredded parmesan cheese when serving.

  1. What’s better than cabbage? Cabbage with potatoes!! This is a great cabbage/potato soup recipe. I added lots more seasonings such as white pepper (1/2 teaspoon), Italian (2 tablespoons), and Dill Weed (1 tablespoon). Delicious!! Thank you!
