  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced
  • 1 large celery stick, sliced
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 14 oz. diced tomatoes
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • ½ medium cabbage, shredded
  • 6 cups veggie stock
  • ¼ tsp. turmeric
  • ½ tsp. sea salt or to taste
  • ¼ tsp. pepper or to taste
  • 2 tbsp. fresh dill, chopped


  • In a large pot, sauté the onions, carrots, and celery in olive oil over medium heat until the vegetables are tender and just start to brown (about 10-15 minutes).
  • Add the oregano, turmeric, salt, and pepper, stir, and cook for just a minute.
  • After that, add the diced tomatoes, potatoes, cabbage, and veggie stock. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium low, and simmer for about 35-40 minutes, until the vegetables are very tender.
  • Lastly, taste for seasonings and add dill. Stir well and turn off the heat. Serve hot.



Add-ins and Substitutes

  • Substitute oil with vegetable broth. If you are following an oil-free diet, or just want to keep this meal extra healthy, then use veggie broth for sauteing. It works just as well, with even more flavor.
  • Add more vegetables. Add other tasty vegetables to this Cabbage Soup, such as mushrooms, peppers, bok choy, spinach, or any other that you've got in your fridge.
  • Substitute fresh herbs and spices. Make this recipe with chives, rosemary, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, or parsley for a variety of flavors to enjoy.
  • Add protein. You can make this soup more filling with protein and fiber. Add tofu, tempeh, black beans, pinto beans, quinoa, or lentils to it.
