This recipe for the cabbage soup is mom’s original with a few tweaks. Adding leeks and Swiss chard which both are in season now, and using vegetable broth instead of the classic chicken.

Using a vegetarian base bouillon which adds depth and that flavor of cooking all day without having to be in the kitchen for so many hours.

Few tips on how to choose and prep the vegetables for cooking vegetarian cabbage soup.

  • Fresh cabbage is one that is firm and has a nice light green color. Cut in half first, and then use a mandolin or a sharp knife for thin juliennes.
  • The leeks tend to have sand. Soak them in water before use and clean well.
  • Clean the Swiss chard leaves with running water. Use a paper towel to remove excess water.
  • Use a proper chopping block and a sharp knife to cut the vegetables for the vegetarian cabbage soup.
  • Sautee the green vegetables with a little piece of butter or ghee. Or replace with your choice of cooking oil (grapeseed oil is a good option).
  • Choose a low sodium vegetable stock of your choice. And a vegan bouillon like base.

Make the vegetarian cabbage soup, it is ready in less than thirty minutes!
