This is one of my top three cabbage recipes. It's healthy and so good.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A super comforting and easy soup to throw together. The sausage adds a wonderful smoky flavor and richness. Cabbage, carrots, and potatoes are basic ingredients but add a lot of heartiness and flavor. A lazy meal on a cold day when you don't feel like cooking.

How To Make cabbage and sausage soup

Test Kitchen Tips
To get it started, we added a couple of cups of water. Once everything was done, we added a little more water to get the soupy consistency. Also, salt and pepper to your taste.
  • Ingredients added to a Dutch oven.
    Add all the ingredients to a large pot or Dutch oven, stir, and bring to a simmer.
  • Cooking until potatoes and carrots are tender.
    Cook until the carrots and potatoes are just fork tender, about 1 hour, adding water as needed.
