- 1 leek, rinsed and sliced
- 1 large onion, diced
- 1 poblano chile, diced (for a slight heat)
- 1 bell pepper, diced
- 1 bunch celery, diced
- 1 bulb of garlic, sliced

- 1 lb shiitake mushroom, sliced (check out benefits http ( or or www.herbcompanion.com or health or Shiitake.aspx)
- water, fresh no chlorine or mineral-rich bone broth
- lots herbs
- salt (optional)
- Saute all veggie except for cabbage and tomatoes in vegetable oil or coconut oil. Cover with water bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer till veggies are tender. Add fresh or dried herbs simmer 5 minutes and season to taste. Or make in crock pot 6-8 hours.
- DIET PLAN:
- Eat soup any time you are hungry. Eat as much as you want, whenever you want. This soup will not add calories. The more you eat, the more you will lose. Fill a thermos in the morning if you will be away during the day.
- Be sure to follow daily to nourish your body as needed.
- Drink plenty of fresh pure water all day. Drink 1/2 of your body weight in ounces of water. If you weigh 100 pounds then drink 50 ounces of water. Also add optional kombucha to your diet for beneficial yeasts and bacteria for your digestive system.
- DAY ONE: All fruits except bananas. Eat only the soup and fruits. Drink kombucha, unsweetened tea, cranberry juice, or water.
- DAY TWO: All vegetables. Eat until you are stuffed with all the fresh, raw vegetables. Try to eat leafy vegetables and avoid dry beans, peas and corn. Eat along with the soup. At dinner time on this day, reward yourself with a big baked potato an butter.Real butter not the fake stuff. Do not eat any fruits.
- DAY THREE: Eat all soup, fruits and vegetables you want. No baked potato.
- DAY FOUR: Bananas and skim milk. Eat as many as 3 bananas and drink as many glasses of water as you can on this day along with the soup. Bananas are high in calories and carbohydrates and so is the milk, but on today your body will need the potassium and the carbohydrates, proteins and calcium to lessen your craving for sweets.
- DAY FIVE: 10-20 ounces Beef, lamb, wheat gluten (seitan), aduki beans, chicken (absolutely no skin) or fish and up to 6 organic tomatoes. Try to select high quality range fed animal protein free of antibiotics or hormones. Try to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water this day to wash away the uric acid in your body. Eat the soup at least once this day.
- DAY SIX: Beef, lamb, wheat gluten (seitan), aduki beans, chicken(absolutely no skin) or fish & vegetables. Eat to your heart's content of the beef or lamb and vegetables this day. You can have two or three steaks if you like, with green leafy vegetables, but no baked potato. Be sure and eat the soup at least once today.
- DAY SEVEN: Brown rice, unsweetened fruit and vegetables. Again, stuff yourself. Be sure to have the soup at least once today.
- By the end of the seventh day, if you have not cheated on the diet, you will have lost 10-17 pounds. If you have lost more than 15 pounds, stay off the diet for two days before resuming the diet again for day one.
- This seven-day eating plan can be used as often as you like. As a matter of fact, if correctly followed, it will clean your system of impurities and give you a feeling of well-being as never before.
- After only seven days of this process, you should begin to feel lighter by at least 10 lbs., and possibly 17. Having an abundance of energy continue this plan as long as you wish and feel the difference.
- Because everyone digestive system is different, this diet will affect everyone differently. After day three, you will have more energy than when you began, if you did not cheat. After being on the diet for several days, you will find your bowel movements have changed -- eat a cup o bran or fiber. Although you can have black coffee with this diet, you may find that you don't need the caffeine after the third day.
- DEFINITE NO-NO'S - BREAD, ALCOHOL, CARBONATED DRINKS INCLUDING DIET DRINKS.
- STICK WITH WATER, UN-SWEETENED TEA, BLACK COFFEE, UN-SWEETENED FRUIT JUICES, CRANBERRY JUICE AND SKIMMED MILK.
- The basic fat-burning soup can be eaten anytime you feel hungry. Eat as much as you wish. Remember, the more you eat, the more you will lose. NO fried foods, pastas or bread.
- Any prescribed medication will not hurt you on this diet. Continue this plan as long as you wish and feel the difference both mentally and physically. If you prefer, you can substitute broiled fish for the beef on only one of the beef days. You need high protein in the beef the other days.
- Avoid all those no-no's. Avoid diet soda's and diet chemicals. Use real butter not the hypo- hydrated fakes . Do not use foods with high fructose sugars do not use aspartame or artificial sweeteners, Use natural whole foods, like stevia, agave, honey.
- Eat good wholesome foods that are well prepared and that appeal to you.
- Make your own healthy fermented foods.

I find the soup very plain
PS: As others noted, sautéd onions add depth to this soup. Sauté the onions while chopping the other vegetables: a lot of extra flavor for little extra effort.
Try adding 32 oz EACH of chicken and beef broths for the liquid--instead of water. Season with freshly ground black pepper, Worcestershire and Sriracha sauces to taste. This variation adds only 100 calories per batch, and elevates the soup from sorry to spectacular!
I used a soup recipe that was very similar to this as a base for many great low cal soup versions after finding the recipe online. I believe it was called something like the" Amazing Soup Diet". Adding meats, pasta and other ingredients make this soup very versatile and delicious. My favorite version was to add some cooked turkey Italian sausage, a couple of tablespoons canned beans and or cooked pasta and basil to a large bowl's worth of the base soup in a saucepan and simmer it for a few minutes. ( This was for one serving.) I would top the soup with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and perhaps a drizzle of olive oil and black pepper. It made an easy start for a simple and really very good meal. My version also called for the addition of spinach and zucchini to the base. On this basis I highly recommend this recipe as it is very nice to come home to most of a lunch or dinner just ready to tweak into a great meal. On its own the soup is healthy and somewhat plain.
It would be easier to beat yourself with a stick than to go through the hassle of making this flavorless dump of a soup. Eating it is punishment and proof that "diet" food is disgusting. Why is this recipe even on epicurious? And if it's on here, why aren't their recipes about eating styrofoam covered with mayonnaise and cumin seeds? It would be just as apropos.
Instead of cooking veggies in water use chicken stock. I also substituted half of the tomato products with a jar of salsa for added flavour.
Following the other reviews I decided to cook 2 breasts of chicken in water with herbs making my own chicken broth and adding protein. I then added all the ingredients minus the green beans. I also added 2 tbs. of chili powder, 4 cloves of garlic and 1 serrano pepper chopped. Spicy and delicious.
I give cabbage soup 4 forks the way I made it, but after reading the other reviews that this soup was bland, I used the recipe more as inspiration than anything else :) I basically tossed in any extra veggies I had in the fridge. a head & a half of green cabbage, a few carrots, green & red peppers, celery stalks, 3 cans of diced tomatoes, some onion & garlic carmelized in olive oil. The trick to making it not bland seems to be that instead of using a water base, I used a white wine/miso base. Miso stock is really healthy and a splash of wine goes a long way :) I also squirted in some ketchup, which gave it the barest hint of salty/sweet without me adding any other salt or sugar. Then I dumped in loads of spices - paprika, basil, oregano, black pepper, garlic powder. :) This soup turned out amazing! But I'd recommend anyone looking to avoid the possibility of blandness to go with a white wine/miso base. YUM!
I enjoyed this soup - I mixed this recipe with the recipe on the cabbage soup diet website, and as suggested, added a dash of my own spices - a good quality chili powder give it a nice kick. I also sautéed up 2 leeks (chopped) with some garlic, 2 cups of water, a bay leaf and a few sprigs of rosemary and thyme. Once they were softened (removing the herb remains and bay leaf), I blended it all together and added it to the onions, green pepper, carrots, and celery I was sweating with some more garlic and herbs. I did not add the green beans as that seemed a bit too starchy for the intent of the soup. Regardless, it was pretty good - and worked well too!
The soup is a bit bland and I recommend spicing it up to your taste. I sauteed onion and garlic in a bit of a light cooking spray. That helped. As for any diet you go on, do some research first. A Cook From Canada seemed pretty outraged that the editors did not put a more expansive precursor for this recipe. But I think an idiot clause applies here. I don't see precursors on fatty, high calorie recipies. Go to the cabbage soup diet website and check it out for yourself.
I would suggest cutting the recipe in half the first time. The recipe as is makes a *huge* vat of not very good tasting soup. Perhaps I just didn't get the spices quite right, but I can hardly stomach the stuff.
Well, I went looking for recipes similar to what my "fat Dr." ordered and lo and behold, here it is (except for the beans part). Everybody loves the stuff around here, (but they won't have to eat it as long as I will). At any rate, when I'm slowly chewing my protein every other day, I will continue to enjoy this stuff 'till I get more recipes. I think most of us on this website are safe from starvation and malnourishment! Come to think of it some of the recipes I found here are what helped send me to "Dr Imfat". Not because they are fattening, just because there are so many good ones!
This recipe is wonderful, especially in winter. I've done this diet twice now, and IT WORKS FOR ME. True, you can eat as much as you like as often as you like, but I treat myself to some quality protein every other day. Protein keeps you feeling more satisfied. So 4 oz of lean chicken or fish every other day doesn't add many calories, and I get some satisfaction for the carnivore in me!
I've made this recipe 3 times and even my family enjoys it on the first night. I spice it up with oregano leaves, cumin and coriander seeds, and cinnamon, which I cook in a little olive oil before adding the vegetables. I add chicken broth (extra) as it cooks. I also add some cinnamon which adds a nice sweetness. This may be a diet recipe, but it has lots of fiber and vitamin C (cabbage) and vitamin A (carrots). We think it tastes pretty good.
I found this soup to be hearty and delicious, thanks to a few modifications. Along with the ingredients as listed, I also added some chicken stock and about 1/4 cup of pre-made salsa.
Cabbage Soup Recipe for 7-Day Diet Plan
You can keep changing the ingredients used, so that you don’t get bored of the same recipe.
- 6 large green onions
- 2 green peppers
- 1 or 2 cans of tomatoes (diced or whole)
- 3 carrots
- 1 container (10 oz. or so) Mushrooms
- 1 bunch celery
- 1/2 head cabbage
- 1 package Lipton soup mix
- 1 or 2 cubes bouillon (optional)
- 1 can (48oz) V8 juice (optional)
- Season to taste with salt, pepper, parsley, garlic powder, etc.
- Slice green onions, put in pot and start to sauté with cooking spray.
- Cut green pepper stem end off and cut in half, take seeds and membrane out. Cut the green pepper into bite size pieces and put in pot.
- Take the outer leafs layers off the cabbage, cut into bite size pieces, put in pot.
- Clean carrots and celery and cut into bite size pieces, put in pot.
- Slice mushrooms into thick slices (otherwise they will disappear in the soup), put in pot.
- If you would like a spicy soup, add a small amount of cayenne pepper (red pepper) now (1/3 teaspoon is quite a bit as the soup will get spicier as it cooks further).
- You can use beef or chicken bouillon cubes for seasonings. They have all the salt and flavors you will need.
- Use about 12 cups of water (or 8 cups and the V8 juice), cover and put heat on low. Let soup cook for a long time (two hours works well).
- Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Eat all the soup you want, whenever you want for the next 7 days.
