Hearty Cabbage Soup
This hot soup is perfect on a chilly fall night.
Fall is finally here! It is the perfect time of year to get out the soup pot and start cooking. With a chill in the air and the sun setting earlier, a hot bowl of soup is the perfect dinner.
Cabbage soup is a hearty soup that will satisfy any appetite. It is low in calories and high in fiber. Cabbage is a vegetable that is rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C, potassium, folic acid and Vitamin B6. Tomatoes are rich in the antioxidant lycopene, Vitamin C and Vitamin A, as well.
This recipe can be easily customized to fit a number of dietary restrictions. By replacing the chicken broth with vegetable broth and the ground turkey with Beyond Meat Ground, this can be made vegan. Replace the chicken broth with a low-sodium chicken broth and no salt canned tomatoes for those with a sodium restricted diet. For meat eaters, you can replace the ground turkey with ground beef or bison, if you’d like. It is also naturally gluten-free.
