Cream of Cabbage Soup | Vegetarian Soup Recipe | Winter Vegetable Recipes | Soup Recipe | Food Made Simple

I love fresh veggies from the farmer’s market! However, coming home with a huge pile of vegetables can sometimes be a little overwhelming, but I have a few standby recipes such as this easy vegetarian quiche or this simple vegetable frittata that both work with pretty much any combination of vegetables. I also love to make soup! Some creations definitely turn out better than others, but this Cream of Cabbage soup recipe was a huge hit with the whole family. In fact my youngest even said it was the best soup she ever had. So there you go.

It also happens to be a great vegetarian option for a simple fall or winter meal. Serve alongside crusty bread with homemade butter. Meat eaters might also want to consider adding some chopped cooked ham, but that is totally optional. I added beans because my kids love them, but you could also skip them if you’re not a fan.
