Cabbage Detox Soup

Happy Hump Day y’all! This recipe I’m blogging tonight is one of my favorite soups. Now I know you’re thinking “uh cabbage soup?” Or maybe you didn’t even read this far {haha}. Trust me. I’m always like “meh” as I’m making it. Then I’m like “hmmmm” as I smell it simmering. Then I’m like “oh my gosh so good” while I’m eating!

Cabbage Soup

I love using this soup as a “detox”. This is my go to recipe when I’ve been indulging lately and not eating the healthiest {Beer Braised Risotto and Sausage I’m talking to you…} It’s healthy and filled with delicious vegetables. Not to mention super easy to make!

Vegetarian or Vegan: please sustitute vegetable broth or water for chicken broth.


Ingredients:

  • Large head of cabbage, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 large carrots, chopped
  • 5 celery stalks, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 6 cups chicken broth* or enough to cover vegetables
  • 28oz crushed tomatoes
  • 3 tsp dried oregano
  • 3 tsp dried basil
  • 3 tsp thyme
  • olive oil

Directions:

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat and saute onions, celery, and carrots until onions begin to turn transluscent. Add garlic, thyme, basil, and oregano and stir for 1-2 minutes. Add in chopped cabbage and cook down stirring occasionally until cabbage begins to soften. Stir in tomatoes and enough broth to cover vegetables. Bring to boil then reduce to simmer and cover for 30 minutes stirring occasionally.

Enjoy! 😀
