Cabbage Roll Soup

Thanks for sharing!

My oldest brother, Isaac, is pretty adventurous when it comes to cooking and food in general. He loves trying new things and he loves coming up with unique and/or new recipes. The family likes to give him a hard time for liking weird things, but honestly, his creations are amazing!! A few weeks ago he told me about a new soup he had created called, Cabbage Roll Soup. Oh my goodness… I can’t begin to tell you how lip-smacking good this soup really is!

Cabbage Roll Soup

At first, I was pretty hesitant to make Isaac’s Cabbage Roll Soup. Mainly because I had tried making actual cabbage rolls from a recipe I found on Pinterest. Let me tell ya… my cabbage rolls did not turn out well at all! In fact, I threw the whole meal away, then I threw away the recipe and deleted the pin off my Pinterest account. 

However, looking back, I have to take full blame for that recipe flop and am no longer hostile toward that particular Pinterest pin. I now understand that my cabbage rolls didn’t turn out right because I used deer meat and swapped out other ingredients that I shouldn’t have. Note to self: Don’t Do That Again!

Now back to our conversation about soup.

So, basically, Isaac talked me into making his Cabbage Roll Soup. He described it as, quote-unquote, “Not bad.”

Pshhhh… NOT BAD???? This soup is AMAZING!!! Wow! It’s SO flavorful! Hmm… Maybe I’m just a better cook? (Said the younger sister to her older brother! Hee Hee!)

Cabbage Roll Soup is LOADED with veggies and therefore it’s super healthy, nutritious, and naturally gluten-free

I like to make Cabbage Roll Soup in my crockpot (which is yet another awesome thing about this recipe). Throw it together, walk away and let the crockpot work it’s magic! My day isn’t spent babying a meal in the kitchen for hours. Yay!

Can you believe that Cabbage Roll Soup has 6 different kinds of vegetables?!?!? SIX!! (Our mother always said we should eat our veggies! )

Cabbage Roll Soup

There are six different vegetables in this soup!!!

Although this recipe is naturally gluten-free, it can also become a vegetarian dish! Simply omit the sausage and use vegetable broth in place of chicken broth. 

Here is what you’ll need: 

  • 1 lb. sausage
  • 3/4 cabbage, sliced
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 5 – 6 white button mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • 1/2 tbsp thyme
  • 45 oz tomato juice (canned or fresh tomatoes)
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 3 cups wild rice, cooked and drained

Add cooked meat, veggies, spices, broth, tomato juice to a crock pot. Cook on low setting 4 to 6 hours. Serve over wild rice.

    do you think red/purple cabbage would work? This sounds easy & great & hope to make it soon:) Thanks!

      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!
