Low calorie vegan cabbage soup with tasty flavors.
Don't chop the cabbage very thinly. It cooks really fast, so the cabbage pieces melt if they are too thin.
Don't skip the following ingredients: Tomato paste, tomatoes, garlic, lemon and parsley. These take a simple vegetarian cabbage soup recipe to a whole new level. It never tastes bland like a regular detox soup.
Use veg broth if you want even more flavor. But we really don't think it is needed in this recipe.
If you are a fan of tangy flavor in soups, you can add an extra splash of lemon juice over the bowl when eating.
To make a more filling soup, you can add in some legumes like cooked chickpeas or white beans.
Besides the stove-top method in your regular soup pot, there are other ways to make this simple cabbage soup:
In a pressure cooker or instant pot: Put all the ingredients except parsley in your pressure cooker or instant pot and lock the lid. Cook for 10 minutes on high pressure. Let pressure release naturally. Add in freshly chopped parsley when serving.
In a crock pot or slow cooker: Put olive oil, onions, garlic, carrots, tomato paste, tomatoes and cabbage in the bottom of a crock pot. Season with salt and spices. Squeeze lemon and pour water over these and give it a stir. Cook it on low for 7 hours or on high for 4 hours. Make sure to stir occasionally. Serve with freshly chopped parsley.
