This cabbage roll soup is hearty and comforting, with all the classic flavors of a cabbage roll.
Cabbage, cabbage, cabbage. I cannot hear the word cabbage without thinking of the cabbage patch dolls that I had as a child. Eleanor and Sybil were beautiful with their puffy nylon faces and braidable yarn hair. They used to spend their time playing with my glow worm and my G.I. Joes. That is, when my G.I Joes weren’t busy playing with my transformers and barbies. Oh to be a kid in the early 80’s. At any rate, you probably did not come here to hear about my childhood toys…
If you have a copy of my cookbook – The Primal Low Carb Kitchen, then you have probably tried my Deconstructed Cabbage Roll Recipe. Well, this cabbage roll soup is a brothy and comforting version of that same recipe. It came about several months back when I went to make my cabbage roll recipe but also had extra stock to use up. Turning it into a soup was just a no brainer. If has become a favorite low carb soup in our home. I hope the same is true for your home. Enjoy!
This Keto Cabbage Roll soup makes a large batch, making it great for weekly meal prep and meal planning. It also freezes and reheats well. When we make it, I divide it into individual portions and freeze it for later.
