Cabbage Roll Soup Recipe

This week I’m participating in the Food Bloggers Challenge! I was tasked to create a recipe using the feature ingredient of the week. This week it’s cabbage!

It’s been awhile since I’ve used cabbage in our meals. It’s not that I don’t like cabbage because I do enjoy it. I think it’s just that my favourite recipes don’t use it as a main ingredient. I’ve made cabbage rolls in the past and they were the first thing I thought to make this week. The recipe I like is for unrolled cabbage rolls made with ground turkey. My aunt makes the best cabbage rolls and hers are rolled perfectly. When I tried her recipe, they did not turn out as pretty!

This week I decided to make Cabbage Roll soup. It’s everything I love about a cabbage roll, but easier to make. It’s also made in the slow cooker which saves me from slaving over the stove all day. It’s slow cooker weather right now anyways and this soup is perfect to eat on a frosty day.

    My son likes cabbage alot but I dont usually make cabbage rolls I bake my cabbage and potatoes . Now this I would make since I dont have to roll the cabbage LOL not to good at that. I also make a stuffed pepper soup so similar to this only use peppers instead of the cabbage. We love both of them. Thanks for the recipe

    I made this for my supper today and I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before. It was wonderful! Less time consuming than making cabbage rolls from scratch but delicious! I think the only thing I would do next time is try to make it a sweet and sour version. I can’t wait….

    Thanks, Stacie.
