If you like cabbage you will really enjoy this chowder. We saw a recipe for a creamy cabbage soup but it just seemed too boring so we added little bits of this and that and made something that actually turned out to be very filling and tasty. Nothing fancy here ... add extra things you thing you might enjoy like a protein .. perhaps ham or Kielbasa would be nice. I was informed that next time I need to plop some dumplings on top !

How To Make creamy cabbage chowder

  • 1
    In dutch oven melt butter then add the onion and celery and saute until tender. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  • 2
    Add cabbage, carrot, potato, dill weed, cayenne pepper, cubed potato and broth. Bring to a boil then drop heat down to simmer and cook until the cabbage is tender.
  • 3
    In small bowl whisk the cornstarch and cold water together to make a slurry. Add to the hot soup, stir and simmer until thickened.
