5 Ingredient Cabbage Soup Recipe


Super Easy & Healthy Cabbage Soup Recipe for Fall


  • 8 cups homemade veggie stock (store-bought works as well)
  • 1 large head of cabbage
  • 2 pkg kielbasa
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste* Try substituting 4-5 drop black pepper essential oil in place of ground pepper – so good!


Cut kielbasa into 1/8 inch – 1/4 inch slices.

Pour olive oil into a hot skillet, add kielbasa sausage, and cook until the sausage is brown. Drain excess grease on a paper towel.

Cut cabbage off around core, chop up into 1-2 inch size pieces.

Toss chopped cabbage and cooked sausage into a large stockpot. Pour your veggie stock over the top. Heat on high, almost to a boil.

Turn heat down to low and simmer for 2 1/2 – 3 hours, adding seasonings or essential oils about 1 hour in. Stir occasionally.

*Note: I do not salt my cabbage soup. I salt my veggie stock when I make it, so there is no need to add any salt directly to the soup. Depending on your veggie stock method, you may or may not choose to use salt.

Hey guys! I’m Mary, homeschool mom of 3 amazing kiddos.

I’m so excited that you decided to check out my little corner of the world!

If you have been following our journey for any length of time, you already know that I’m obsessed with coffee, organization, and all things simple.

I’m also a huge dog lover and introvert 💗

My homeschool style is very eclectic.

I enjoy a solid mixture of structure and free range. I set goals for myself and my children each week, but I put no pressure on perfection.

We use a wide variety of curriculum in our home.

Some of our current favorites are The Good and the Beautiful, Life of Fred, Beautiful Feet Books, and Lifepac.

While my kids do spend a good amount of time learning at desks, they also spend countless hours exploring their creativity and practicing a little independence.

I love mountains, rainy days, and sitting by the campfire. 

Our family recently relocated to the PNW and we have been enjoying finding new nature spots to explore together 🙌🏼

I can’t wait to connect and share all the things I’ve learned on our new journey!
