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.

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.

Enjoy!

Notes

If for some reason you can not find hot paprika in your area, simply substitute regular paprika. Then add in a few pinches of cayenne pepper or dashes of hot sauce. You can also omit the "heat" if you prefer and just use the paprika.
