Not many people enjoy regular cabbage soup, especially when they’re greeted with regular, boiled cabbage water soup. Thankfully, this Weight Watchers cabbage soup recipe is packed with flavor.

What Ingredients Do You Need to Prepare this Weight Watchers Soup Recipe?

The only possible downside to the Weight Watchers cabbage soup is that you need a lot of ingredients. Still, if you’re already following a Weight Watchers plan, the chances are that you already have most of the ingredients at home.

Here are a few notes surrounding the ingredients:

  • You can use vegetable broth instead of beef broth.
  • If you want a spicier taste, feel free to add red pepper flakes.
  • Feel free to replace any veggies you don’t like. If you don’t want green beans, for example, you can replace them with mushrooms, zucchini, or other options.
  • You can add other ingredients like brown rice, sausages, white beans, etc. However, adding those ingredients could add points to your Weight Watchers profile.
  • If you want to garnish your soup later, you can add chopped fresh parsley.

Expert Tips to Improve Your Cabbage Soup Recipe

There are many ways to improve your cabbage soup each time. Take a look at the following tips, and make sure you make the most out of this recipe:

  • Get non-starchy vegetables if you want to keep your points as low as possible with your cabbage soup. These veggies include bell peppers, celery, broccoli, etc.
  • Besides the pepper flakes, you can also mix in chili powder or cayenne pepper.
  • Replacing the beef broth with vegetable broth will make your cabbage soup either vegetarian or vegan-friendly.
  • In most cases, you won’t take more than an hour to finish this recipe. However, if you prefer your fresh veggies either crunchier or softer, feel free to adjust the cooking time.
  • Even though this cabbage soup has some net carbs from the vegetables, this is still an excellent keto-friendly recipe.
  • If you want, you can cook your cabbage soup in a slow cooker. Here, I would recommend cooking on low instead of medium heat for approximately four hours. If you’re short on time, then I wouldn’t recommend this method.

What Can You Serve Your Cabbage Soup with?

There are many delicious (and healthy) dishes you can pair with your cabbage soup. Some popular ones include:

On the other hand, if you want to pair your soup with WW-friendly dishes, I recommend:

  • Zero Point Turkey Chili
  • WW Taco Soup
  • WW White Chicken Chili

Remember, you can still enjoy this soup by itself, so you don’t need to worry about preparing other side dishes.

Storage and Reheating Options

One of the best things about this soup is that you can store and reheat it without any problems.

The recipe I used here will give you plenty of servings, so if you won’t eat all of that, feel free to follow these storage options.

You can either pour your soup into an airtight container and refrigerate it. On the other hand, you can take cooled soup into a Ziploc bag and then lay it flat in your freezer.

Considering there’s not any dairy or pasta here, you can freeze cabbage soup without any issues.

Now, if you don’t have that many leftovers, you can reheat them by putting everything into your microwave.

However, if you have a larger bowl, I recommend you get everything on your stove and set it to medium heat.

Those who want to make the most out of their leftovers can also add more veggies, broth, or water to the mix.

To summarize, if you’re refrigerating your soup, you can expect it to last for three or four days.

On the other hand, if you’re planning on freezing your soup, you don’t need to worry about time, although I would still recommend not waiting that long.

Is Cabbage Soup a Good Diuretic?

One of the best things about this cabbage soup is that it has excellent detox properties for you.

Particularly, it features diuretic properties that will help your body get rid of toxins and excess liquids faster, helping you lose weight.

Now, keep in mind that due to the diuretic properties of this soup, you may have to go to the bathroom several times.

Still, that’s a great sign that the soup is working to get rid of toxins fast, so people love it!

Bottom Line – Enjoy Your Hearty Soup!

People have believed for years that it’s not possible to have a healthy diet and still enjoy flavorful and hearty foods.

Thankfully, options like this cabbage soup are here to prove them wrong.

Depending on what ingredients you use to prepare this soup, you could add very few points to your Weight Watchers profile.

The healthiest version of this soup will add zero points to your profile, so if you’re looking to save some points for later, this can be an excellent option to consider.

Weight Watchers makes it relatively easy for you to track everything you eat, so you can decide how many points you will be adding to your serving each time.

Regardless of what variant of this soup you prepare, you can rest assured that it’s one of the healthiest options out there.

The best thing about it is that it still has an excellent flavor despite its “healthy” properties.

I hope this page has helped you come up with the best version of the cabbage soup for you!
