Rustic Cabbage Soup

There's nothing like a well thought out meal week! I finally know what that special caliber of mom feels like. The one who has thought out all meals for the week, makes their children's halloween costumes and throws amazing birthday parties (Thanks Mom!) Granted, I'm not a mom, but I felt like one this week with how organized our dinners have been!

Next up is a Rustic Cabbage Soup from 101 Cookbooks. What I enjoyed about this recipe was the fact that beans were included. Flashback to February! We've had such odd weather lately with one sunny day and one snowy day, that I thought soup was fitting. Plus I did some "doctoring" so that I used the other halves from the German Cabbage Casserole. Genius! 

Finished Product sprinkled with some Parmesan cheese

Potatoes, onion and cabbage all cut up ready to go!

Oil, Potatoes and salt warming up and browning

Meanwhile, brown the ground turkey breast

Add the garlic and onion to the pot

Add the beans and broth

Finally, add the cabbage and allow to cook down a little
Isn't it odd that you can feel like you followed a recipe to a "t" and made no mistakes, only to discover when blogging that several were made?! Amazing. I've been cutting all of the recipes in half to serve two people and I did the same with this one. With one minor exception. I didn't half the cabbage quantity. No wonder I felt like it was more stew-ish than soup-ish. Woopsy-do! The original recipe also doesn't call for ground turkey, but it was so good the night before I felt that it would be perfect in this soup. This was very tasty, but slightly bland. The original poster does talk about that the seasoning needs to be just right, so maybe I was a bit off. This did make plenty for two though, in fact, it'd probably be plenty for four. 

Happy Soup-ing!


  1. I love soup and I might have to try this recipe.

    1. While this one was good, I much preferred the other soups I've made so far. Check out the January Chard Flashback and Chili Goodness posts for some other ideas. Happy Soup-ing!
