Low-Sodium Cabbage Soup Diet Recipe All Fresh

Low-Sodium Cabbage Soup Diet Recipe All Fresh created by Preet M.

The Cabbage Diet Soup is a long time known great soup. However, recently, I have been trying to keep the sodium down in all my cooking to keep the blood pressure in check. When I looked at how much salt was in this recipe the way it was made, I realized that I could cut it down dramatically. But, would it taste as good??? (I think so...)

    I am giving this 5 stars for flavor, but would rate it 3 stars for the actual written instructions. Given that there are so many ingredients, it helps to put them in order of usage. I had to keep going over the ingredients to make sure I had included everything and then some I couldn't find when they were supposed to be added. So, while I simmered the tomatoes, I sauteed the green onions, peppers, and carrot sin some olive oil. When it said to add the spices, I assumed that meant garlic and parsley with the bouillon? I also added a generous handful of Cajun seasoning. After adding the cabbage, mushrooms, zucchini, and V8, I realized the celery never went in, so I added it then. I also realized I didn't add the jalapeno peppers, which were probably included in step 4, so I added them then as well. I did end up adding some vegetable broth as it cooked because it needed a little more liquid for my tastes. The end result was very delicious! I love cabbage soup, and this one is one of the best. I actually had some watercress pesto in the freezer that I had made, and used that to top it off, but it really doesn't need anything. Thanks for sharing (now go rewrite the recipe - LOL). Made for Spring PAC 2012.
