Here I want to share with you my Fat Free Cabbage & Savoy Soup.

The addition of savoy cabbage and sweet corn gives this soup a bit of extra 'oomph'! If you'd like to include some more protein, it works very nicely with a couple of diced chicken breasts in the mix (brown these first, using low calorie cooking spray).

Ingredients:

1/2 medium head green cabbage
2 cups savoy cabbage, chopped
2 medium onions
6 medium carrots
Chicken or Vegetable bouillon
4 cups canned diced tomatoes
8 cups water
2 cups canned sweet corn
3 cloves garlic
Low calorie cooking spray
Pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Peel and slice onions and carrots. Chop green cabbage and savoy cabbage.

2. Fry onions in skillet prepared with low calorie cooking spray until soft. Mash the garlic and add to onions.

3. Add water, green cabbage, savoy cabbage and bouillon. Cover and cook for about 30 minutes on low to medium heat.

4. Add corn and tomatoes. Cover and cook for further 15 minutes.
5. Add pepper to taste.

6. Serve and enjoy!

Hi Lisa,
thank you so much for this wonderful savoy cabbage recipe. I just want to add that this soup is wonderful for the time AFTER the cababge soup diet week. If you want to use it while doing the 7 day cabbage soup diet I recommend to leave out the corn!

All the best,
Gabriela

cabbage soup with broccoli

Do i have to stick to the exact soup recepies, or can i add vegetables for variation?
And am i allowed to leave out ingredience in the soup, for example if i cook it without peppers but with broccoli instead?


Of course you may vary the soup according to your taste. Find here even more cabbage soup diet recipe variations.

To use broccoli instead of peppers should be ok - potatoes for example are NOT ok.

All the best.

cabbage stew instead of cabbage soup?

Is it possible to replace the cabbage soup with cabbage, onion and carrot type stew and still experience the same weight loss?

Hello,
the impressive weight loss effect of the cabbage soup diet is closely related to the satiation effect and purifying properties of cabbage soup.
Both aspects can't be covered through cabbage stew.

But you might use cabbage stew as a dish on the so called "vegetable days" of the cabbage soup diet.

All the best,
Gabriela
