Red Cabbage Soup (Incredible!)


This Red Cabbage Soup is sweet, sour, and full of antioxidants!


Units Scale
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 red potatoes
  • 1 red cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 bay leaf


  1. In a large Dutch oven or large soup pot, cook the bacon until it’s starting to get crispy.
  2. While the bacon is cooking, finely chop the onion, chop the carrot, and cut the potatoes into cubes.
  3. Remove the bacon and place it on a plate lined with a paper towel.
  4. Add the onion, carrot, and potatoes to the pot and sauté about 5-7 minutes, until softened.
  5. While those vegetables are softening, core and thinly slice the cabbage.
  6. Add the cabbage, coconut sugar, cinnamon, salt, pepper, and ground cloves to the pot. Stir and cook until the cabbage is soft and wilted, about 5-7 minutes.
  7. Add the chicken stock, apple cider vinegar, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and bring to a simmer.
  8. Partially cover the pot with a lid and continue to simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  9. Remove bay leaf, stir in bacon, and serve. Enjoy!
