Cabbage Roll Soup

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).

Cabbage Roll Soup

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!

There is a ton of flavor to this soup!

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!

      I have not tried it with purple cabbage. Sorry I don't know if that would work. Please let me know if you try it and how that turns out.

    Hi Anna, I wanted to tell you how grateful I am to you for posting this wonderful looking & sounding recipe. A dear friend is cleaning out her garden, & she gave us a bunch of tomatoes, zucchini & cabbage. So I typed those ingredients into the Pinterest search, & your recipe really caught my eye. I'm usually not a huge soup fan either, but my Hubs loves stuffed cabbage, & stuffed bell peppers, & has been asking me to make some. I love my Hubs, but don't care for all the mess & fuss of making either of these dishes. So, I hope he'll be satisfied with your brother's soup instead. If not, of course I'll make them by the long method later. Praying this works though, hee hee! Have a Blessed Day!

      Hey Gina! I really hope your husband likes this recipe! It turned out much better than we expected so I hope you have the same experience! You should also check our recipe for inside stuffed peppers. Your husband might like it and it is much easier than regular stuffed peppers ;) To find it just click on Main Dishes under the Recipes tab at the top of our site.

    It looks almost like a stew with all those great ingredients. My husband is not a soup person, but he would like this because of the cabbage and sausage. Thanks for linking up with the Tasty Tuesday's Link-up. I have pinned your post to the Tasty's Tuesday's Pinterest Board!

      Thanks for pinning! My husband did not have very much confidence in this soup when I told him how I was going to make it, but he LOVED it! So I hope your husband loves it too!
