This easy Cabbage Roll Soup has all of the flavor of cabbage rolls, but no leaf folding needed!
One of my favorite things to have for supper when I was a kid was Spanish rice. Cabbage rolls were something that my grandmother used to make, and I always loved that the cabbage rolls had almost the same ingredients inside them.
Making cabbage rolls can be a bit of a challenge though. You have to have just the right heads of cabbage and it can take a bit of practice. I know I have struggled myself to make cabbage rolls. I wish my grandmother was still around to share her secrets with me.
So just skip the whole process and turn it all into a soup! All of the flavor and none of the hassle.
To Make Cabbage Roll Soup you will need:
- ground beef
- green bell pepper
- red bell pepper
- tomato sauce
- black pepper
- hot paprika (see note in recipe)
- bay leaves
- beef broth
- honey (omit for keto)
- Dutch oven

I like that this soup uses both red and green bell pepper.
You’ll also need half of a head of cabbage, which you will shred and set aside until later.
To begin, cook ground beef, onion and bell peppers together in a Dutch oven over medium heat until the beef is browned, about 5 minutes.
Add in beef broth, tomato sauce, along with bay leaves, honey, parsley, dill, onion powder, hot paprika, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat to a medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes.
Add in the shredded cabbage and cook for 5 more minutes, or until the cabbage is tender.
Find and discard the bay leaves.
Serve the soup with a scoop of Cauliflower Rice or regular rice if you like, or simply enjoy it as it is.
