It’s incredibly easy to make, packs a lot of fiber, and you won’t have to worry about those pesky calories while you eat it. Moreover, it doesn’t contain any animal products — it’s a vegan meal through and through.
Another great thing about this meal is that once cooked it can be served multiple times in a few days without losing its taste and flavor. It is an ideal choice for busy people who want to eat healthily, but don’t have time to cook every day.
There are lots of health benefits to eating cabbage vegan soup. For instance, it can help with digestive problems, as well as reduce inflammation and lower your blood pressure. In addition, you will get your full daily supply of both vitamins C and K. It’s also an awesome meal if you’re on a weight loss program, since it’s so succulent and juicy AND low-calorie at the same time.

Brief Note: Since this is cabbage soup, it’s only natural that you have to pick the best type of cabbage for it. So, here’s a quick and handy guide to cabbage selection. Of course, you can use this guide even beyond this recipe when looking for a healthy, strong head of cabbage.
First off, a cabbage head ought to feel heavy for its size. If it’s too light, you might want to avoid it. Next, make sure that the stem of the vegetable isn’t limp. A good, strong stem is an indicator of a healthy plant. Finally, check the leaves. They ought to be compact and feel tight against one another.
How to Serve Vegan Cabbage Soup
A soup like this one doesn’t require any hefty side dishes.
Personally, I often serve this soup with a bowl of radishes and a few slices of whole wheat bread. If you are not on a vegan diet, you can add one soup spoon of low-fat Greek Yogurt to the served meal to additionally improve the taste. Or maybe not, because you will not be able to stop eating this soup.
Vegan cabbage soup is best served hot. You can store it in a fridge and reheat it later.
Storing the Cabbage Soup
The cool thing about vegan cabbage soup is that you can store it for a long time. For example, if you keep it in a fridge, in the original enameled pot, it will keep the freshness for 3–4 days. Avoid storing the meal in bare metal pots as the acidic food can cause the metal from the pot to leach into your meal. When stored in a well-sealed plastic or glass container, the soup will keep its freshness for up to 5 days.
You can also keep the cabbage soup in the freezer for roughly 2–3 months. However, make sure that you place it in an airtight container or a freezer bag. Moreover, make sure that the soup has completely cooled before you place it in the freezer. Just to mention that I prefer fresh cabbage soup over frozen one.
