Vegetarian Cabbage Soup

I’m so excited that once again I can make all the soup I want. So, when my son gave me a large head of cabbage, I got excited. Sure, I first asked him to make some cabbage rolls or something but after he declined, I knew that it was going to be put to use in a soup.

Yes, I know some people shy away from cabbage because of the gas it may bring but did you know that it actually helps with your digestive system? I know crazy but it does have sulfur compounds along with the great fiber. Not only is it great for your digestion but studies have found the benefits with heart health and inflammation. This veggie has some great vitamins like B6, K, C as well as magnesium and potassium. I didn’t mention all the benefits but just the highlights.

Plus, when adding the rest of the ingredients I put in this soup, you will not only have a warm comforting bowl on these colder days/nights but a healthy meal to help keep you feeling your best.
