Cabbage Soup with Smoked Sausage

Cabbage Soup with Smoked Sausage is loaded with both cabbage and slices of smoked sausage. A little cream adds some richness to this comforting, hearty soup that’s perfect for a winter meal. It’s full of chunks of potato, carrots, and onion and is really more of a stew than a soup. Serve with cornbread or fresh bread for a filling meal.

I’m actually not a huge fan of soup, but once the dreary winter weather arrives, I do crave a hot bowl of soup every now and then.

Cabbage, however, I’m a huge fan of. This Cabbage and Noodles recipe is one of my favorite comfort foods and I also love this Sweet and Sour Cabbage recipe.

I love the way cabbage tastes in a soup. It soaks up the other flavors so well and it’s a natural choice for pairing with smoked sausage.

This is a really simple soup to make. Garlic, onion, carrot, dried thyme, chicken bouillon, a little brown sugar, and caraway seeds (optional) flavor the soup.

Next time you need to warm your belly, try a bowl of this Cabbage Soup with Smoked Sausage.

  1. Tasty tasty… relatively easy to pull together and absolutely perfect for a very fallish day in the mountains of colorado

  2. Hi Christin,
    Can this be made in an instant pot? I love using it but am not sure how long to cook the cabbage.
    Thank you,
    Susan
