I've tried many variations of cabbage soup over the years.Instead of tomato juice I like to add pureed tomatoes. I find this more economical, less salty and better tasting. I like to add spices like marjoram or oregano.

I make cabbage soup quite often as I find it filling and really healthy. I substitute pureed salt free canned tomatoes for the tomato juice, in order to keep the sodium content in check. I like to add whole caraway seeds and pepper.

This is such an easy recipe for cabbage soup. I split it into bowl sizes and add a variety of veggies to make each bowl unique. Great for us older gals who are trying to lose or maintain our weight.

If you like a little spice add spicy v-8 juice instead of the tomato juice

Wonderful...been making cabbage soup for years, only, I use canned tomatoes instead of the juice, less expensive!! And, in the summer months....use the slo-cooker!!! Also, must have a couple bay leaves, and anything else that you want to beans??

Hello everyone, Thanks for the helpful suggestions. We're glad you're enjoying the recipe; both as hot or cold.

This can be served hot OR cold. I prefer it hot, and embellish it with green beans, baby spinach, and zuchini.

@cjbourbeau 4066057 - You should definitely be able to enjoy this one hot. If you do, let us know your thoughts on how it turned out. - FaveHealthyRecipes Editors

Can this soup be served hot as I don't like it cold. Thanks,
