5 Ingredient Cabbage Soup Recipe

Ingredients:Super Easy & Healthy Cabbage Soup Recipe for Fall

  • 8 cups homemade veggie stock (store bought works as well)
  • 1 large head of cabbage
  • 2 pkgs kielbasa
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste
    * Try substituting 4-5 drop black pepper essential oil in place of ground pepper – so good!


Cut kielbasa into 1/8 inch – 1/4 inch slices.

Pour olive oil into a hot skillet, add kielbasa sausage, and cook until sausage is brown. Drain excess grease on a paper towel.

Cut cabbage off around core, chop up into 1-2 inch size pieces.

Toss chopped cabbage and cooked sausage into a large stock pot. Pour your veggie stock over the top. Heat on high, almost to a boil.

Turn heat down to low and simmer for 2 1/2 – 3 hours, adding seasonings or essential oils about 1 hour in. Stir occasionally.

*Note: I do not salt my cabbage soup. I salt my veggie stock when I make it, so there is no need to add any salt directly to the soup. Depending on your veggie stock method, you may or may not choose to use salt.
