This Cabbage Soup recipe is one of the few recipes that you can sit down and eat as much as you want as often as you want and you can feel great about it! It’s low in calories and it makes the perfect meal at any time of the day

I love this recipe for a few reasons. It’s flavorful, it has minimal calories, it’s so easy to make and it makes great leftovers that reheat well. It’s also a great recipe for sicks days, or recovering from being sick days.


  • Heat oil in a utensil and saute onion & garlic for 2 minutes.
  • Add cabbage, tomatoes, cook and stir for a minute.
  • Add water or stock, bay leaf, salt, and pepper to taste.

Variation: I sometimes add one carrot, sliced 1/8-inch thin, along with the cabbage
