Steps to make One Pot Cabbage Soup


Grind spices


If using whole spices, grind ½ teaspoon coriander seeds, ½ teaspoon fennel seeds, and ¼ teaspoon cumin seeds in a mortar and pestle or in a spice grinder until well ground.


Sauté onions and spices


In a 4-quart, thick bottomed pot or Dutch oven on medium heat, heat 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil and 1 teaspoon butter. Add 1 ¼ cups chopped onion and stir in the ground spices. Cook until the onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.


Add cabbage


Add 4 to 5 cups sliced cabbage to the pot and stir. If using unsalted stock, sprinkle the cabbage with ½ teaspoon salt.


Add tomatoes


Add the canned tomatoes with their juices and stir to combine.


Add chicken stock and simmer


Add 4 cups chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Do a taste test for salt and add more salt if needed. Reduce the heat and cover the pot. Simmer, breaking up the tomatoes that are still whole, until the cabbage is thoroughly cooked, 20 to 25 minutes.



Ladle the soup in bowls, sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper, and serve hot.
