Okay, I know that a cabbage soup doesn't sound good, but trust me on this one. This soup is GOOD! Super easy to make and healthy too! I found the recipe online somewhere a few years ago, but we modified and changed it according to what we like.
Cook Time: Approx. 30 minutes
One pound of ground beef, cooked
1 16 ounce can of kidney beans. un-drained
1/2 to 2/3 a head of chopped cabbage
1 28 ounce can chopped or stewed tomatoes (We used a "fennel and red pepper" can)
2-4 bouillon cubes (We use the little jar of soup base found next to the bouillon cubes at the store. It is easy to add a little extra flavor without having to use another cube since it is liquid. 2-3 teaspoons of this base was perfect.)
Spices: Garlic salt, pepper, oregano, minced onions... and whatever else suits your fancy.
1-2 cans worth of water
Mix all of the ingredients together and cook until the cabbage is tender, approx. 20-30 minutes. (TIP: You can start everything else cooking while you cook the ground beef to save on time!) The great part about this recipe is it is so easy to add extra ingredients if you want more. Another can of tomatoes, extra beans, etc. Also, it re-heats very well so leftovers are still delicious!
