Cabbage Patch Soup

I saw this Cabbage Patch Soup while visiting blogs the other day and it really sounded good! It's very hearty and I love the kidney beans in it. I get a feeling this is one of those soups that gets even better the next day:@)
 This recipe can easily be cut in half, you can freeze the extra tomatoes if you don't have a use for them right away.

Cabbage Patch Soup-adapted from Living With Thanksgiving
2 lbs ground beef or turkey
1 large yellow onion, diced
4 stalks celery, sliced
1 big garlic clove, minced-my suggestion
3/4 large head of cabbage, chopped
2 (15 oz) cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 large can diced tomatoes
2 Tblsp chili powder
Better Than Bouillon to taste if needed-maybe 1-2 tsp
S&P to taste
  1. Brown meat in large soup pot, drain fat if needed. 
  2. Add onion and celery. Saute for a few minutes then add the cabbage. 
  3. Add water to cover (I made a half batch and added 2 1/2 C) and everything else.
  4. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes.
  5. Can be frozen.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)


  1. Yum! I love simple dinners like this.

  2. Lynn, So glad you liked the cabbage patch soup! Thanks for the shout out!

    I love the Ferrero Rocher Turkey. I am sharing it with a friend that asked for cute ideas for her grandchildren.

  3. Mmmm... that looks absolutely delicious, I love both beans and cabbage!

  4. I love cabbage and this soup sounds right up my alley!

  5. That really does look good this time of year. I have a thing for soups and can almost smell this now.

  6. All of my favorite things in one pot!!


  7. Boy would THAT be good on this cold, windy day, Lynn! It reminds me of a soup recipe from DH's Polish Aunts. All the same ingredients except instead of cabbage, they used a can of drained bean sprouts & didn't put in kidney beans. (or chili powder either). They added soy sauce right before serving. DH loves it with fresh rye bread. Maybe next time I make it, I'll do a post about it. Very old fashioned but delicious.
    I'll be sure to try your version if I can talk him into allowing me to add the kidney beans. He has a thing about them. ~~insert rolled eyes~~
    Thanks for sharing this one.

  8. Oh my, does that ever sound good, Lynn! I'm a big fan of cabbage in soups and this is chock full of other goodies, too. I'm thinking even sausage would be good I it. xo

  9. Oh, this looks delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Can't wait to try it.

  10. Hi Lynnie! Oh, this soup looks and sounds yummy. I could go for a bowl right about now.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  11. Sounds almost too simple to be true, love it!

  12. It sounds wonderful! I think I'd sub some canellini beans for the kidney. I know it would be hubby approved :)

  13. Oh that looks good! Would be great with Italian sausage I bet :)

  14. My husband makes this soup. It IS yummy!!!!

  15. Sounds like a cabbage chili, and really healthy too. I'm looking forward to sharing this one with my family.

  16. I have been making this soup for years. There are times I actually get hungry for it and will make a pot. yes, it is always better the next day or two. It is very low calorie too. If it weren't for the meat it would be a good vegetarian dish.
