This is the best cabbage soup I have ever tasted. I found this recipe in an old cookbook. I changed some of the ingredients as I love a thick soup, the chili sauce adds a lot of flavor to the soup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt margarine in large dutch oven or soup pot.
  2. Add onion and celery.
  3. Saute until soft.
  4. Add remaining ingredients.
  5. Bring to a boil, stirring often.Cover.
  6. Boil slowly until vegetables are tender.

I made as directed, but I'd do one thing differently next time - leave out the extra sugar. I thought the chili sauce gave the soup a sweet flavor, with the added sugar it was a little on the sweet side for us.

I thought this was AWESOME! I love any kind of cabbage soup. I did not have chili sauce so I subbed it with 2 TSP of chili powder. I also left out the sugar and I didn't add extra salt due to the boullion. It was a perfect low cal soup. I do think the servings are closer to 8 or 12 though.
