Seven soups every Saturday: cabbage soup recipes

Hearty Anasazi bean and cabbage soup, for crockpot or stovetop, from Kalyn's Kitchen.

To be honest, I love cabbage. In cole slaw. I don't exactly love it in anything else, and for that reason alone, cabbage goes on my list of not-crazy-about-them foods to use more often (along with cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and lima beans). I ease into the cruciferous vegetables by incorporating them into soups, where they can swim around with ingredients I do love. Cooking mellows the cabbage and brings out its natural sweetness, making it the perfect foil for the more aggressive flavors of smoky meats, or tomatoes and beans. And cabbage -- whether green or red, Savoy or Napa -- is always budget-friendly.

Seven cabbage soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Irish potato and cabbage soup with (gluten-free) soda bread, from Gluten-Free Goddess

Veselka's cabbage soup, from Smitten Kitchen

Chinese corn and cabbage soup, from Appetite for China

Crockpot or stovetop recipe for anasazi bean and cabbage soup, from Kalyn's Kitchen

Mexican cabbage soup, from Clean & Delicious with Dani Spies

Peasant cabbage tomato soup, from A Veggie Venture

Soup of white beans, cabbage, ham and duck confit, from Nutrition Unplugged

I love cabbage soup and believe it or not i will make it for myself with vegetable broth, cabbage and some seasonings, so you can imagine how much I am going to enjoy delving into these recipes!

Looks like a great fall/winter soup.

I do love cabbage in soup! That Anasazi Bean Soup was one I used to make for the students (but without the cabbage when I made it for them.)

I have a huge head of cabbage from my last CSA Box that I have trying to figure out what to do with, so this soup post is timely!

Daryl, I hope you find some variations you like here.

Geraldine, welcome!

Rupert, lots of good ideas that might find their way into my kitchen.

Kalyn, I bought some Anasazi beans at a gourmet store a few weeks ago, and I'm looking forward to making this recipe.

Jeanette, good timing indeed! You've had such great vegetables in your CSA box and I've enjoyed your recipes all summer.

Funny -- I'm just the opposite. I love cabbage sautéed and in soup. Saw some enormous heads of savoy yesterday -- wish I'd picked some up for a batch of one of these recipes!
