Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow or white onion chopped
  • 2 bell peppers chopped (any color)
  • 4 celery stalks chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 large tomatoes chopped
  • 1 cup broccoli slaw optional
  • 1 green cabbage head chopped
  • 9 cups low-sodium broth chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 lemon juiced

Instructions

  • Instant Pot Cabbage Soup: 1) To make the detox cabbage soup in the pressure cooker, press the saute function. Heat oil and cook onion, bell pepper, and celery for about 5 minutes, or until softened. Stir every now and then. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add tomato, broccoli slaw, cabbage, broth, tomato paste, pepper, and turmeric. Stir and secure lid. 2) Set on high for 15 minutes, or press the soup function and set for 15 minutes. Allow natural release, about 20 minutes.   Remove lid and stir in spinach and lemon juice.  Stir in salt but do not go overboard.   

  • Slow Cooker Cabbage Soup: 1) Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, add oil and cook onion, bell pepper, and celery for about 5 minutes, or until softened. Stir every now and then.  Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Transfer to the slow cooker. 2) Stir in all the other ingredients for the cabbage soup diet recipe, except spinach, lemon juice, and salt. Secure lid and cook for 2-4 hours on high, or 8-10 hours on low. Remove lid and stir in spinach and lemon juice.  Stir in salt but go easy.

  • Cabbage Soup on the Stovetop: 1) Heat a large nonstick pot or dutch oven over medium heat, add oil and cook onion, bell pepper, and celery for about 5 minutes, or until softened. Stir every now and then. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. 2) Stir in all the other ingredients, except spinach, lemon juice, and salt. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, stir, cover, and let simmer for 30 minutes, or until veggies are tender. Remove lid and stir in spinach and lemon juice.  Stir in just enough salt to taste.
