Cabbage Potato Soup in the Crockpot





Cabbage is one of those super foods that we should all eat more of. I like it, but to tell the truth, never think of eating it, beyond making coleslaw. It is inexpensive, low in fat, high in fiber and also low carb - the perfect vegetable for a diabetic or for anyone who wants to eat healthy.


When looking for something to make for St. Patrick's Day, this soup sounded really good, but I decided to adapt it to the crock pot and add diced potatoes to the recipe. It turned out to be a filling, delicious soup, perfect for the holiday and celebrating our Irish roots.


Crock Pot Cabbage Potato Soup

8 cups chopped cabbage

1 chopped onion

3 cloves chopped garlic

2 T butter

2 cups chopped potatoes ( with skins)

1 cup diced ham

8 cups chicken broth

salt and pepper to taste

Sauté onion and garlic in butter. Place in bottom of large crock pot. Add cabbage, potatoes and chicken broth. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook on high for 6 hours, adding diced ham for the last hour of cooking. Enjoy!

Happy Tuesday!
