Soup that is filling and flavorful is a winner every time. That puts cabbage bean soup high on the request list at our house.

White bean and Cabbage soup with Sausage

Cabbage Bean Soup

Soup season is the BEST. Not much beats a simmering pot on the stove filling your house with warm savory scents. A warm bowl of soup and a slice of crusty bread or biscuits adds up to a dinner everyone pulls up a chair for after a busy day.

This soup comes together quickly on the stovetop. Start by browning the sausage in a heavy pot over medium heat, and season with taco seasoning.

I often use homemade taco seasoning in my dishes, as it adds flavor easily without measuring out small increments of so many ingredients. With this as my base then I simply add whichever additional seasonings I think will taste good.

Cabbage tends to take quite a bit of seasoning. For this soup, I add extra cumin and salt. I always suggest tasting the dish before salting as the chicken broth will vary along with your sausage when it comes to salt. A quick taste test will save you from over-salting.

When adding the cabbage I wait until the very end and only simmer it for 4-5 minutes. Keeping a little firmness to the cabbage just adds a nice texture that works with the soft and creaminess of the white beans.

Cabbage Sausage Soup

The sausage adds a hearty element to this soup. Hot or mild works great with these ingredients:

  • hot sausage
  • homemade or store-bought taco seasoning
  • green cabbage 
  • white beans
  • chicken broth
  • kosher salt
  • cumin
  • fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, over medium-high heat, cook and crumble the sausage. Sprinkle with taco seasoning as it cooks.
  2. Add the cabbage, white beans, chicken broth, salt, and cumin. Stir to combine and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce to a simmer for about 5 minutes, until the cabbage is bright green and slightly tender. Taste and adjust salt as desired.
  4. Remove from the heat, add cilantro, and stir once more. Scoop into bowls and garnish with additional cilantro, if desired. Enjoy!

Pork and Cabbage Recipes

This time of year I find myself cooking with cabbage quite often and my go-to combination with cabbage seems to be pork in all of its various forms – from sausage or bacon to ground pork or roasts. It tends to work well with cabbage because it is basically a blank canvas with a very subtle flavor.

Tender potatoes, crisp cabbage, and spicy sausage added up to an easy dinner that the whole family enjoys. Chunks of cheese melt into this dish adding just the right amount of richness.

A skillet of Southern Fried Cabbage with crispy bacon and slightly wilted cabbage is a classic not to sleep on. Let’s face it, bacon is every vegetable’s best friend.

When I don’t have sausage at my fingertips, beef is a great option. Your search for a cozy, filling soup ends here with this Italian Vegetable Beef Soup, the list of simple ingredients results in amazing flavor.
