Cabbage Soup Recipe


  1. Cabbage, whole
  2. Green bell pepper
  3. Turkey legs, smoked flavor
  4. Brown rice
  5. Carrots, diced
  6. (optional) Onion flakes
  7. Mrs. Dash (Table-blend) Seasonings

Cabbage Soup Instructions

Put the smoked turkey legs into a pot of boiling water. Cut the cabbage into medium size pieces as you would a head of lettuce. Add the cabbage pieces in a pot, and then boil the pot on medium heat. Dice half of the green pepper into the boiling pot; add a half cup of brown rice, carrots, onion flakes, and seasonings. You don't have to rinse brown rice since it doesn't contain starch.

Benefits of Eating Cabbage

Cabbage is high in vitamin C which is great for building a strong immune system to help fight against potential flu, common colds, sinus problems, congestion, and asthma symptoms. Cabbage also contains anti-inflammatory properties that assist with preventing cancer diseases, diabetes, and cardiovascular problems.
