OMG, that looks GOOD, and I don't think I even like cabbage! Thanks for sharing!..
That looks good, I think I will cook tonight! Thanks..
I thought we could only have 1.5 cups of veggies for the green? Your soup says 2 cups...
This looks great! I'm not into cabbage but I totally want to make this for my fiance....
Question...if I'm going to make a large pot of it, about how much of a liquid to food ratio would I go for? I'll probably use water with buillion. Thanks!..
You measure the vegetables in the form you are eating them. Two cups of raw veggies cooks down to about 1.5 cups..
If you want to maintain a L&G ratio just double, triple, or quarduple the amounts I listed and then divide up the pot into that many servings..
So... 1 c broth for 1 Lean and 3 Greens. You can add extra water if you want it saucier and it won't affect the calories or anything...
Thanks for sharing, looks very yummy. I will definitely try it...
Wow, I didn't realize the 1.5 cups was either cooked or uncooked. That doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me calorie wise. Many veggies cook way down so the calorie count would be a lot higher for them...
NS has said that since cooking reduces the nutritional content of the veggies, it takes more of them to get in enough nutrition. But yeah, you can have a LOT of cooked spinach versus raw spinach!..
TY! He's not on Medifast so I don't have to worry about keeping it within the parameters but I didn't want it to be too watery or not have enough liquid...I don't have as much experience making soups as other stuff...
Lyn - Love your blog! Thanks for posting recipes. Cabbage Soup is on my menu for the month! I will have to check the rest!..
Oh that looks so good. I am going to try that. Thank You!..
Im not a fan of cabbage but that sure does look delish!..
That looks incredibly yummy! Thanks for sharing! Love your blog too!!!.
Week 1 -4.4 .
Week 2 -4.1.
Week 3 -1.2 (out of town).
Thanks for your recipe. Will be making that tomorrow. Love Cabbage Soup..
Dang that looks good!! I am making that this week!..
Thanks, it was really VERY good. I am thinking about making it again tomorrow...
Hey Freedom - I got a question, can you turn the below ingrediants into 1 L&G...how much of each do I need to use to make it? I want to make something similar to your recipe. But 1 serving out of the below....
I have on hand:.
1 bag MSF Crumbles.
1 bag Cabbage (angel hair shredded-2 cups/3 servings).
2 cans Delmonte Zucchini w/Italian style Tomato sauce(1/2cup serving-3 1/2 servings).
(Cals 30 - Total fat 0 - Carb 7g).
And I do have ff chicken broth.
Hope this makes sense....I'm not recipe creative..
I would use 1 cup of broth, one "serving" of crumbles (look on your Meatless Options list to see how much that would be. I am not familiar with the crumbles so not sure if you have to brown them first or what), 1/2 c tomatoes and zucchini (if you're sure this is medifast friendly for a veg... 5g carbs or less) and a heaping cup of raw chopped cabbage. Season to taste..
**ETA, I see the canned zucchini/tomatoes has 7g carbs and is seasoned so I'd still use a half cup but NOT add seasoning, and count 2 condiments with the veg...
Awesome...Thank you very much!! Can't wait to try this...yours looked so good! This would be a great dish to make and freeze and keep on hand!.
Sunshine, I would also suggest adding the tomatoes/zucchini last, during the last 5 min of cooking since they are already cooked in the can...
Hey Freedom... I had already shut down the computer for the day...great advise, that is what I did... it turned out very tasty and filling!!.
I made two servings.... I used 1 bag Angel Hair shredded Cabbage, 1.5 cup MSF Crumbles, 1 can Zucinni w/ Itialian tomato sauce, 2 cups ff chicken broth..
I like my cabbage tender, so I started with chicken broth, cabbage, & crumbles...boiled until tender, then added the can of zuccinni...covered and simmered to blend the flavors..
It was simple and it will freeze well and will be a great dish for the winter...!!!.
Thanks again for your advise....
I tried this last night and it was great, I only added garlic powder and pepper and it was very tasty and filling!! Thanks so much for the recipe. I even made it for the family just added alittle more things to it and they all ate it too!!..
I made this tonight and cooked the cabbage in broth, then weighted, added the tomatoe, cooked the beef and added. I used the low fat hamburger so I got 6 oz.. It was a huge bowl! So filling.. I have the other half for tommorow!!..
Glad you like it and glad you bumped this up, because even thought it is my recipe I forgot about it, lol. I will make this tonight as well Never get tired of it!..
YUM!! I'm eating this right now! I used leftover ground turkey that I had already measured out, beef broth, 1 can of water, fresh tomatos, fresh garlic and cabbage of course. A little bit of seasoning too. LOVE IT! Its a huge amount of food and so satisfying on a chilly night. Not to mention it is very economical and easy to make. Thanks again I love your recipes!!!..
It looks really good! I'm definitely trying it this week. Thank you!..
That looks really good. I'm going to make some with very lean ground beef tomorrow. Just a note for any newbies reading your recipe - using kidney beans ( or any other legume) is not an option on the 5 and 1. Thanks for posting your recipe. It is definitely getting to be soup time!..
Wow, thanks for the bump! This looks absolutely yummy, and I forsee a lot of this one during the cold cold winter we're being forecast!..
