Cabbage Soup with Smoked Sausage

Cabbage Soup with Smoked Sausage in a large pot.


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.

Easy To Make

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. The ingredient list is fairly long, but this recipe can be made in under 30 minutes if you prep as you cook.

Cabbage Soup with Smoked Sausage Storage

Leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days.
