Tonight we had cabbage soup for dinner, it was delicious!
Ours didn't have the beef in it like the above photo because we have been not eating as much meat lately... One of the reviewers on the site I found this recipe said it was exactly like the soup at The Cabbage Patch in Snohomish, WA where I used to eat with my mom so I was excited to try it. Here is the recipe.


1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 (3 ounce) can tomato paste
1 1/2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 tablespoon minced parsley
1 (7 1/2 ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 beef bouillon cubes
1/2 head cabbage, chopped
4 -5 1/2 cups water
1/2 to taste salt and pepper

In a large soup kettle, brown beef with onion, garlic and green pepper.
Add tomato paste, tomatoes, chili powder, oregano, parsley, kidney beans and salt and pepper to taste.
Stir well.
Dissolve bouillon in 1 cup water and add to soup along with cabbage.
Slowly add desired amount of remaining water.
Bring to boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour.
