This Potato and Cabbage Soup is a hearty vegan soup recipe that is perfect for the colder months.
I am really excited to finally be sharing this recipe for Potato and Cabbage Soup with you! I originally intended sharing this recipe last year, but the weather started to warm up. I decided to hold of until the weather got colder again.
Now that it is officially soup season and the weather is frigid outside, I figured that it was a good time to finally share this hearty, plant-based Potato and Cabbage Soup with you!
This soup is perfect for enjoying on cold, snowy day. It's warm, comforting and delicious.
This soup is loaded with winter vegetables. Potatoes, carrots, and green cabbage are great winter vegetables to add to soups. They are readily available and fairly inexpensive.
This Potato and Cabbage Soup is also very budget-friendly. The recipe makes a ton and even tastes better the next day.
This Potato and Cabbage Soup has a Hungarian flair to it. I love using Hungarian Paprika, coriander, and allspice together in this soup recipe. The combination of spices add depth of flavor to the soup.
I love cooking with beer. I usually have a few extra cans or bottles in the fridge. Beer adds depth of flavor to the soup. If you avoid alcohol in your diet, you can leave it out and add extra vegetable broth or water. For this recipe, I really like using a lager.
Towards the end of cooking, I like to add lots of fresh herbs. For this soup, I love the combination of dill and parsley. The herbs compliment the spices used.
Fresh lemon juice brightens up the soup. Lemon is so good with the fresh dill and parsley.
To serve the soup, I really love topping the soup with vegan sour cream. This is optional, but highly recommended!

Hi - the soup does look yummy and just perfect for a cold day and so budget friendly. Though i don't tend to use potatoes so is there another veggie I could prehaps substitute?
I think that you could sub any root vegetable that you would like. Maybe parsnips or celery root would work in the soup. Or you could even replace the potatoes with cooked beans!
Thanks. I was thinking some additional carrots or perhaps while not a root vegetable broccoli. I have never tried celery root though so perhaps i will give that a go.
You're welcome! More carrots and broccoli would be great! Enjoy!
