Easy Cooking Cabbage Soup Recipe

Soups are a great source of vitamins without being a heavy meal ie low in fat and carbs, this easy-cooking-for-men Cabbage Soup recipe is based on the famous Cabbage Soup diet where this recipe claims people can loose 10 pound (or 5 kilos) in a week.
The other great thing about soup are they are usually a cheap meal, are a real treat to warm you up in winter, and although cooking time is a little on the high side the preperation time is low.

  • 8 cups of water (can be substitited for chicken or vegetable stock)
  • cabbage leaves
  • 2 medium sized carrots
  • 1 brown onion
  • 1 green capsicum
  • 1 tomato
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • salt and pepper
  • chilli flakes (optional)
  • 1 tomato (optional)
  • 1 chicken breast diced (optional)

  • Add water to a large pot and turn on medium heat.
  • Cut all vegetables and place them in the warm pot with brief stirring.
  • Add the thyme.
  • Turn on the high heat and let it boil for 5 minutes with constant stirring.
  • Turn down to low heat, cover and let it simmer for 30 to 45 min.
  • Scoop into a bowl and serve with freshly cracked salt and pepper.
  • To add a little kick to your cabbage soup recipe try a sprinkle of dried chilli flakes on top just prior to serving.

For a finer cabbage soup recipe add another tomato and 1 teaspoon of minced garlic into the mix prior to boiling. After boiling pour all ingredients into a blender and blend until desired cabbage soup consistency is achieved.
