SWEET CABBAGE SOUP RECIPE
We are having a polar cold snap here in the midwest and the best comfort food during cold weather is soup. It is a go-to in our home during the winter months.
One of my favorite soup recipes is this sweet Russian cabbage soup. I love it because of the flavor but also the healthy benefits of cabbage.
You probably already know that just like kale and broccoli, it is a cruciferious vegetable and is packed full of beneficial nutrients. In addition, did you know that cabbage is actually a great food for someone going through radiation treatment. Research has shown that cabbage contains diindolylmethane (DIM) which through scientific testing has been shown to protect against the harmful effects of radiation therapy. In addition, cabbage has another cancer-fighting compound called sulforaphane.
Here is the cabbage soup recipe I have made many times over the years – it is sweet, healthy and delicious!
Prep Time: 10 minutes / Cook Time: 1 hour / Yields: 4 servings
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
4 cubes beef bouillon
2 medium carrots, shredded
1 onion chopped
2 tbsp white vinegar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 head of cabbage, cored and cut into wedges
1 small bunch of fresh parsley (optional for garnish)
2 quarts water, divided
- Crumble the ground beef into a large pot. Add the diced tomatoes, beef bouillon cubes, carrots, onion, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Pour in 1 quart of water and bring to a boil. Stir to break up the beef while heating. Once the soup comes to a boil, cover and simmer for 30 minutes over low heat.
- Pour in another quart of water and return soup to a slow boil. Add in the garlic and cabbage. Simmer for 25 minutes until cabbage is tender. Ladle soup into bowls, garnish with fresh parsley and serve!
