Cabbage Sausage Soup

Cabbage, sausage soup recipe is a delicious and quick and easy meal to make for the whole family. I make this dish at least once a month in my house because it’s great for weight loss and weight maintenance. And on top of that it taste so good!

INGREDIENTS: 
  • 1 pound kielbasa sausage*, sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 medium leeks, sliced into ⅛ inch rounds, white and pale green parts only
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 small green cabbage, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 pound red potatoes, diced
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, homemade or store-bought
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Kosher salt and freshly-cracked black pepper
INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Add sausage to a large stockpot and cook over medium-heat for 5-6 minutes, stirring and flipping occasionally, until the sausage is lightly browned.  Use a slotted spoon to transfer the sausage to a separate plate, and set aside.
  • Add the olive oil, leeks, carrots and celery to the pan, and stir to combine.  Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Then add the cabbage and garlic, and sauté for 4 more minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the stock, potatoes, Italian seasoning, bay leaf, cooked sausage, and stir to combine.  Continue cooking until the soup reaches a simmer.  Then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked and tender.
  • Remove and discard the bay leaf.  Taste and season with a few generous pinches of salt and black pepper as needed.  (Also, depending on how seasoned your sausage is, feel free to stir in a extra few teaspoons of Italian seasoning if you think it needs some extra flavor.  A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes will also help bring out the flavors.)
  • Serve warm.  Or refrigerate in sealed containers for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
NOTES
*Feel free to use traditional kielbasa sausage, or any kind of smoked pork, chicken, turkey, or vegan sausage that you’d like.  (Bratwurst also works!)
**If making this recipe gluten-free, be sure to double-check that your sausage is certified GF.
