Easy and Delicious Cabbage Roll Soup

Easy and Delicious Cabbage Roll Soup

After an amazingly warm and long autumn, Calgary has become the wintery wonderland that I know and…er…love? Not sure about the love part but the winter part is totally true. Blowing snow and minus double digit temperatures call out for a warm bowl of soup like this easy Cabbage Roll Soup.

Sometimes I feel like I have fallen into a soup rut. Tonight I decided to make something a bit different than our usual beef noodle soup. A head of cabbage in the crisper was crying out for a bit of love so off I went looking for a recipe for soup featuring cabbage. Next thing I knew I was slicing and dicing everything needed for this delicious cabbage roll soup. It came together quickly and then bubbled happily on the stove while I chatted with Evan. Perfect for a cold and blustery night at home with the family.

Soup is perfect for a cold and blustery day. This recipe for Cabbage Roll Soup is easy, filling and delicious.


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, pressed
  • half head cabbage, chopped
  • 8 cups low-sodium chicken broth, 2- 1 litre tetra packs
  • 1 large can of diced tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp white vinegar
  • Additional salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large soup pot, cook hamburger meat until browned. Drain fat.
  2. Add onions and carrots to the meat and cook until starting to soften (3-5 minutes).
  3. Add garlic, cabbage, chicken broth, tomatoes, rice, paprika, bay leaf and salt. Stir well and bring to a boil.
  4. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 - 25 minutes or until rice and cabbage are tender.
  5. Stir in sugar, Worcestershire sauce and vinegar. Taste and season as necessary. I added a LOT of salt so do not be afraid to add quite a bit if it needs it. Otherwise the soup will not be as tasty.


When reheating, the rice soaks up a lot of liquid so you may need to add more water or broth to thin to a soup consistency.
