Super Delicious Vegetable Soup and Yes It Has Cabbage

I really hesitated to say cabbage in the soup title because 
I know there are many cabbage-phobic people out there.

But here's the thing....this is so yummy!
I'm not a dietitian but this soup is bound to be good for you! 

How To:

* In a little olive oil, I sauteed a chopped onion, two chopped stalks of celery, 
and a some minced garlic until tender.
*Added two of the small boxes of vegetable broth and 
simmered awhile so the good flavors would go together like Joanie and Chachi did a long time ago. Remember that? I miss Happy Days. :)

Then I added a can of diced tomatoes drained, a can of cannellini beans drained, 
two chopped carrots, and most of a head of chopped cabbage. 

There is also salt, pepper, and red pepper sprinkled in for good measure.

I remember eating cabbage soup years ago when on Weight Watchers
 so I'm sure we will get skinny if we eat this.

Now y'all know that I've been to the doctor a few times here lately and she talks a lot about calcium and bone density. 

We definitely want to have strong bones so after you have your cabbage soup, 
I recommend a scoop of Rocky Road. A reasonable portion.

That's my plan!!

I think this sounds delicious Stacey. I have an all vegetable minestrone soup that has a good helping of cabbage in it, mixed in with all the other veggies it is wonderful. Thanks for sharing, and I completely agree with your preferred method of calcium consumption ;>)

Sounds like an excellent plan to me!


Lisa@Pickles and Cheese said...

Yep! Sounds like my kind of plan too!

Ivy and Elephants said...

Sounds so yummy and healthy, too. Perfect on a cold wintery day. (I love the balance of the ice cream, too. A girl has to stay sweet (; )

Happy@Home said...

Ha! I like your nutritional advice. Sounds like a good plan to me.
I love vegetable soup, although I have never thought to add cabbage to it. I will be trying this next time.

Pat@Life At Lydias House said...

You are too funny! I am a cabbage eater and this soup sounds delicious to me!

The Gathering Place said...

I a big soup fan and cabbage is something we really like to eat. Guess I'll be trying this new recipe. I think the advice to add calcium (through ice cream) is perfect, too!

Patricia Krank said...

Good plan Stacey. I'm in!

Jaybird said...

We actually LIKE cooked cabbage :^)
This sounds wonderful....especially on this cold, trying to snow, day!
The Rocky Road sounds good too, but alas we are not allowed sugar :^(
Hope you are staying warm up there...hoping that spring will come soon so that you can make a road trip down south here!!

This sounds delicious, Stacey! Cabbage makes a nice healthy "filler" in my soups and stews. I will definitely try this! :)

I love cabbage and I love vegetable soup so this is a winning combination. I am definitely trying your recipe. I may even pick up some Rocky Road , too... ;)

Sonia said...

I've always loved cabbage soup and on a cold day like today it would be perfect. I vary mine with whatever leftover veggies I have in the refrigerator. If it wasn't snowing outside I'd be tempted to go get a head of cabbage. Looks so delicious!

A very comforting soup, even with cabbage. Sometimes using cabbage makes a great addition. Maybe some people got burnt out with that cabbage diet.

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

This looks yummy to me! One of our favorite soups has cabbage in it. It has lean hamburger and it's tomato based.. but this one looks good too!

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

I love cabbage, so I think your soup sounds yummy!

Journey said...

Sounds yummy. Actually had all the ingredients and waiting for it to simmer right now. Smells good!

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

This sounds delicious, Stacey! But if I make it for my family I'll definitely have to leave cabbage out of the title!

JG said...

Cabbage is yummy! Cooked like in Stuffed Cabbage Rolls/ fried, in Cole Slaw! Can you tell I grew up eating cabbage? Your soup looks delicious, Stacey!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Leslie said...

Sounds fantastic!!! I love anything with cabbage!!

Fairhope Supply Co. said...

Nope. Not a cabbage fan, but for some reason, my children love it! Maybe I'll be sweet and cook it for them!

Just a little something from Judy said...

Sounds so good and healthy to me! Perfect for a spring luncheon. Thanks for sharing it.
