There are a few comfort food favourites I like to make when the weather is so cold I don’t want to leave me house and cabbage rolls have to top that list. I love making mine with sour cabbage leaves but the batch makes enough for an army so I make some and save some for this delicious Cabbage Roll Soup that will have you thanking me.
Cabbage Roll Soup – Flavour
The flavour of cabbage between regular and sour is a personal choice but I feel like sour cabbage gives it another depth of deliciousness. You can use long grain white rice instead of wild grain however I find this adds some texture and taste to the recipe.
This Cabbage Roll Soup recipe makes a large soup pot full, enough for a large family and a great homemade gift idea for friends and neighbours when they may need a pick me up with a mason jar of comfort food on their doorstep. It can be stored in the fridge for up to a week with the top sealed.
