I've had this recipe for a good 30 years. It is a good winter soup and very easy to make.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a dutch oven or other large soup pot put the oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add the sausage (Hillshire can also be used or whatever brand that you want) and stir-fry until lightly browned.
  2. Add the cabbage, onions, potatoes and carrots. Stir-fry for 3 or 4 minutes.
  3. Add the bay leaf, cajun seasoning spices, garlic, salt (1-2 teaspoons depending on how salty you like it) and black pepper. If you don't like too much of a spicy taste, reduce the cajun spices. Stir to blend.
  4. Add the chicken broth and water, increase heat to high until the liquid is boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
  5. Rinse and drain the white beans (small white beans, white kidney beans, whatever you desire), and add to the soup. Simmer 30 more minutes.
  6. Good served with a rustic type of bread.
