My oldest brother is pretty adventurous when it comes to food. He loves trying new things. He loves coming up with new recipes.
We like to give him a hard time for liking weird things, but honestly, almost always his food is amazing!!
A few weeks ago he told me about a new soup he had “invented.” It was inspired by the Cabbage Roll recipe (popularly made in slow cookers).
I was pretty hesitant to make this because I had tried making the cabbage rolls and they did not turn out well at all! In fact I threw the whole meal away and then I threw away the recipe and deleted the pin off Pinterest. Since then I have taken full blame for the flop in that recipe and am no longer hostile toward that particular pin (I used deer meat instead of hamburger…I also substituted a few other things that I think were to blame, not the actual recipe).
So back to the soup! My brother, Isaac, talked me into making this soup. He described it as “Not bad.”
Pshhhh…. NOT BAD???? This soup was AMAZING!!! Wow! Was it flavorful! (Maybe I’m a better cook and my soup turned out better than his? 😉 )
This recipe is definitely going into our rotation of meals!
Not to mention that it is super healthy! 7 different kinds of vegetables in one soup! SEVEN!! —I’m counting mushrooms as a vegetable in that number.
This soup does have a roll of cooked sausage in it, but if you omitted this, this could easily be a vegetarian meal!
Plus, as most of our recipes are on this blog, it is naturally gluten free!
I made this in a crock pot. Which is another awesome part of this recipe. Throw it together and leave it. Your day isn’t spent babying a meal in the kitchen for hours.
This soup also makes fantastic left overs!
