Red cabbage soup

Ever tried red cabbage soup? It will definitely surprise you and your guests! The color is so pretty purple, and the taste, just amazing!


  • 1/2 red cabbage
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1 liter vegetable stock (store-bought or make your own)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 to 5 pimento (also known as Allspice)
  • 1 teaspoon ginger syrup
  • pepper and salt to taste
  • cream for serving
Red cabbage soup ingredients

Kitchen equipment needed

  • cutting board & chef’s knife
  • large pan
  • blender
  • tea infuser (f.e. a stainless steel ball)

Preparation — 10 minutes

REMOVE the red cabbage’s core and chop the cabbage up into smaller pieces. PEEL shallot and garlic clove and chop them up too. You don’t have to be precise, we’re going to blend the soup anyway.

If you’re using whole pimento, CRUSH them and add them to a tea infuser so it’s easier to remove them before blending the soup.

Cooking the red cabbage soup — 20 minutes

HEAT olive oil in a large pan and sauté the chopped shallot and garlic for about a minute. Now also sauté the chopped red cabbage for about 5 minutes on medium heat. For the last minute of sautéing also add the ground ginger.

POUR the vegetable stock in the large pan and add the tea infuser with pimento and let it come to a boil. When it starts to bubble, turn down the heat and let it simmer for about 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the red cabbage pieces. REMOVE the tea infuser and blend the soup until smooth. Season with pepper, salt and ginger syrup. SERVE with a little bit cream in each bowl. Enjoy!

Variations of The Cabbage Soup Recipe

A couple weeks ago I asked on my Facebook page what you wanted me to write about and I got some great responses!

So, here is my first post suggested by you!

The Soup

Obviously the biggest component of the Cabbage SOUP Diet is the soup itself! I know the basic recipe is well…basic, to say the least, but it’s tried, tested, and it works.

However, that doesn’t mean we can’t (literally) spice things up a bit right?

The following are a few recipes that add to the basic Cabbage Soup recipe or replace it entirely.

I’ll describe each a little bit so you know if that’s the right recipe for you. Considering you’re going to need at least 2 batches this week, maybe you can try a batch each of something below.

Leave me notes in the comments! Let me know which you try, which you like…and of course, leave your own recipe if you’ve created one!

Excellent Additions – Italian Cabbage Soup:

Recipe: Add these to the basic recipe to spice up your palette.

3 cloves garlic, crushed

3/4 cup chopped parsley

4 fresh oregano leaves, crushed or 1 teaspoon dried oregano

basil to season

Instructions: Follow the basic recipe instructions

Tip: Add as much garlic as you like! It’s good for the heart!

A Recipe Replacement – Italian Cabbage Soup Version 2:

Recipe: This is a recipe replacement. Use this recipe in it’s entirety to make a big batch of soup.

3 tbsp. olive oil

1 small cabbage or pointed cabbage

5 stalks celery

spices, ground pepper

juice of 1 lemon

*The recipe originally calls for 5 cups stock but stock is not allowed with the soup. Use water and add a single bouillon cube if you need to.

Add basil leaves, olive oil, and your favorite spices. Mix them together, covering the leaves, and put the dish in the freezer for 10 minutes. Remove and blend into a super fine mixture. Wash your veggies and cut them up while you’re waiting. Heat a tiny bit of olive oil in a big pot, then add your cabbage, carrots, celery and fennel. Add 5 cups water and your optional cube. Boil the whole thing for 5-7 minutes, remove from heat. Add lemon juice, more spices, and place back on hot stove for 2-3 minutes before serving.

Tip: Make sure to remove it from heat before adding the lemon juice.

15 Minute Soup, quick and easy! Zucchini Cabbage Soup Recipe

Recipe: This recipe features zucchini and has a great texture to it.

½ medium head of cabbage, diced

3 small zucchini, diced

1 large clove of garlic, crushed and minced

¼ tsp dried basil

½ tsp black pepper

12 ounces of V-8 vegetable juice (Low Sodium!)

2 tbsp tomato paste

1 boullion cube

1-2 cups chopped spinach

½ cup sliced carrots

Season to taste

Instructions: Mix all ingredients and cook with low heat for 10-15 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

The Strictest recipe for the best results! Military Diet Cabbage Soup

Recipe: Did you know weight problems affect our men and women in uniform, too? This version, called the Military version, is very strict. If you’re thin and using this diet as a detox, this is for you.

1 large head of cabbage

1 large bunch of celery

2 bunches of green onion

1 large can of whole tomatoes

1 bouillon cube

3 large bell peppers

Season to taste

Instructions: Chop all veggies, add them to a pot with enough water to cover. Boil for 15 minutes. Done!

For Curry Lovers! Cabbage And Curry Soup Recipe:

Recipe: This recipe is not made using the regular soup recipe first, this is an entire recipe replacement! It is more like a thick stew, yummy and filling.

Half a packet curry powder

Half a cabbage, cut into small pieces

1 cinnamon stick

cauliflower, bite size pieces

3 garlic sliced

1 onion chopped

Spray pot with cooking oil. Add the spices and fry them until they start to smell strongly (and soo good!). Add your onions and garlic. When the onion is soft (turns clear looking) then add water and stir. Add in the veggies and cover with water. Let the mixture reduce and the vegetables soften to your desired consistency, about 15 minutes or so.

Tip: Curry powder is a better choice than a paste!

For Protein lovers – Protein Filled Cabbage Soup

Recipe: If you are the type who suffers a headache from the soup, consider adding a bit of protein by adding beans.

1/2 head of Cabbage

1-15 oz cans black beans

2 cans of tomatoes

2 cloves of garlic

bunch of cilantro** optional

Instructions: Put all ingredients in a pot and cook on medium heat for 30-60 minutes, until beans are soften to your liking.

Fat Burning Soups For Weight Loss. A simple 3-step plan to lose weight fast, along with numerous effective weight loss tips. If only losing weight was as easy as gaining it, right? While there are plenty of advertised ways to shed some pounds, there are only a handful of methods that actually work.

The message text*:


From low-carb diet, hi-protein diet, low fat diet and eating small meals 5-6 times a day diet, Fat Burning Soup Recipes is the only diet where I lost weight and most importantly kept it off!

Fat Burning Soups For Weight Loss

No massive shift in what you eat (you can still eat the same foods you do now).

No need to exercise or working out.

No silly dietary restrictions to follow.

No starving yourself and feeling miserable.

And just picture the envious glances you’d enjoy from the opposite sex and the astonishment of your friends because you’ve lost a total of 55 pounds.

Too good to be true?

That’s what Emily Sanders of Bristol in the UK though – until she actually achieved it.

Just look at her amazing transformation …
