Hot & Hearty Cabbage Stew

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

While visiting with a friend recently she commented that she had been eating lots of cabbage stew lately. Cabbage stew? YUM.

This friend mentioned that cabbage stew was a healthy soup option on her Weight Watchers program. Although I’m not really looking to lose weight I’ve been wanting to try this soup for a while now. Especially during the cold winter months I like to enjoy hot soups & stews for lunch. I’ve started an endless soup regimen where I can enjoy ready-made hot  lunches for about a week.

HOT & HEARTY CABBAGE STEW! I wasn't trying to lose weight but the scales inched downward when enjoying this delicious soup for a week's worth of lunches. #TexasHomesteader

I still have lots of dehydrated cabbage in the pantry so I figured I’d incorporate cabbage stew as my soup of choice for the coming week. (but of course you can use fresh chopped cabbage instead) Then I just pile in the veggies needing to be used and enjoy hot-n-hearty soup for several days. 

This is a very flexible recipe of course. Pile in the veggies you love the most. But here’s the base Cabbage Stew recipe I typically start with:

    I am totally in love with this recipe! As a long-time vegan I am always looking for hearty recipes for the winter, and this one I am definitely trying this weekend (and sharing of course) 🙂

    Thank you so much!

    I made Cabbage Stew except I used fresh cabbage, celery, carrots. Then I used frozen green peppers and tomatoes instead of tomato sauce since I had them added a few spices and we will use this for lunch for the next few days. Thanks

    I made hamburger soup the other day and just because I happened to have a fresh cabbage in the fridge I added a hunk of it to pot. Except for the ground beef my soup looks a lot like your cabbage soup. Very yummy and warming on days on weekends like this when it is -23 (in south eastern Ontario this weekend).

      Oh yes Lisa, this soup can have meat or not. (If RancherMan’s gonna enjoy it, there must be MEAT! LOL) It can have various additional veggies, or not. I love that it’s so customizable and still be delicious! ~TMH~

      Soups are my favorite way to use my dehydrated veggies. My weekly ‘Endless Soup” always has several different dehydrated veggies in it. Sometimes the soup is spicy mexican flavored, sometimes it’s italian flavored, sometimes it’s just homestyle stew seasoned but it’s always delicious! ~TMH~

    Looks Wonderful. Now if only I could smell it :}
    Seems like I have been making more soups this year than I had in years past. We just finished off my Chicken and Rice soup
    Course I will have to use fresh instead of the dehydrated veggies but plan on adding this recipe to the rest of my soup recipes.
    Thanks

      As soon as my dehydrated cabbage is gone I’ll certainly be using fresh as well Colleen. Fresh is always my preference, but when I find a great deal at the store or have too much I often dehydrate produce to be used later. I will say that I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious this soup was. (and also pleasantly surprised that it actually DID make the scales inch downward for me too… LOL) ~TMH~

        From the looks of the picture, looks like you also added whole kernel corn and green beans of which I thought about doing

          Yessum, the pic was taken after I “bumped it up” for RancherMan’s more hearty soup needs. But when making my endless soup I typically add a can of veggies every few days and depending upon what variety of soup I’m enjoying I’ll add either corn, green beans, mixed veggies, or even ranch-styled beans. Adding those cans of veggies is how that soup pot keeps me in soup lunches for a week, and it increases my veggie intake too. ~TMH~
