Vegan Cabbage Soup

Vegan Cabbage Soup

1 pkg. onion soup mix
1 tsp. curry
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 yellow summer squash, diced
5 carrots, sliced
1/2 head cabbage, chopped
4 green onions, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes

Place all ingredients in crockpot, cover with water, and cook on high for about two hours. Turn to low and cook all day.
What I like about this recipe is how easy and healthy it is. The chicken bouillon cube and curry add a rich taste. This recipe is similar to the cabbage soup diet. The key to the cabbage diet, however, is eat plenty of green vegetables and the cabbage soup. You may add or leave out some of the spices or vegetables to suit your taste. Shredded cooked chicken breast would also make this soup very tasty if you get tired of just vegetables. As summer nears, however, heavy meat makes me feel quite sluggish and overly full. This cabbage soup is filling, and the chicken flavor satisfies the craving for more than just vegetables.

This sounds so yummy!
I wish someone else in my family would eat cabbage. I love everything made from cabbage --- especially sauerkraut!
(Must be that little bit of German in me)
Thanks for sharing.

Hey Angelia
I'm Chef Corey from Family Fresh Meals. My vegetarian hubby would love this one. I just started a new recipe Linky called Sunday Funday: Recipe of the Week. This recipe would be perfect for the first week theme CROCKPOT. Each week will be a new theme. Once this Sunday Funday gets going, I would LOVE to do a random gift card giveaway each week. But I am going to need a good amount of posts to start that, so come join the fun each week. At the end of the week, a recipe/blog will be picked at random to be the featured recipe for the following week. Hope you stop by and join!
