Vegan Version

by Leia

Hi there. So I don't eat meat, but I love cabbage. I think it's funny, cause there are all these sites with people that say eating cabbage for days must be horrible. I look forward to it. hee hee. Only thing is, I am a vegan. I don't eat meat. So what would be a safe substitute for days 4 and 5? Thanks so much in advance for your reply!


Hi Leia,
I love cabbage too and this is a great advantage.
Instead of meat we recommend tofu which bases on soy beans.

All the best,

vegan version on 5 and 6 day.

by Kinia

Can I use beans and pulses instead meat as I am vegan?

Dear Kinia,
no pulses or beans are allowed on the cabbage soup diet. The vegan version for day 5+6 is using tofu instead. Find here a delicious tofu recipe:

cabbage soup with tofu

by Yolanda

I sautee onions, garlic, tomatoes bellpeppers, red and green celery, carrots, mushrooms in olive oil, salt and pepper it then I slice my cabbage and add some cubes of tofu for protein, I add hot water when veggies are cooked and onion mix with a chicken bullion just 1. I simmer for 20 min.

Before serving I add a bit of tapatio hot sauce and a bit a avocado on veggie days.......I have to say it hits the spot! so delish!

Hi Yolanda,
thank you for this cabbage soup recipe variation. It is a great idea especially on the day 5+6 of the cabbage soup diet. Please leave out avocados as it is too fat for the diet week!

All the best

tofu question

by Samantha

Is tofu a veggie ? Can I grill tofu with my other grilled veggies ? Or is it considered a meat?
Also are veggie burgers allowed ones that are homemade with veggies only?

Hi Samantha,

tofu is based on soy beans. It is not considered as vegetable but you can use it as meat replacement on day 5+6 of the cabbage soup diet.

Vegan sunflower spread instead of meat

by Sunny

We are a vegan and eat no GMO's like corn soy including tofu, we are gluten free and refined (all the whites) free and oil free.

We normally eat mostly vegetables, salads, fruits, nuts and seeds.
on the beef and tomatoes day could we do a sunflower seed or other nut pate like this one?

1 ½ cup shelled sunflower seeds soaked rinsed and drained well
10-12 sundried tomatoes
juice + zest of 1 lemon
1 clove garlic, minced
½ cup fresh basil, chopped
1 tsp. coconut amino acids (soy sauce substitute)

1. Place sunflower seeds in a bowl and cover with water. Soak for at least 4 hours if possible, overnight is best. Drain and rinse.

2. Pour warm water over sundried tomatoes and soak for 20 minutes or so, until they have softened, drain, reserving the liquid. Roughly chop tomatoes and set aside.

3. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until desired consistency is reached. For a creamier texture, add tomato soaking liquid one tablespoon at a time (I used about 4 or 5 tablespoons of liquid in total).

4. Serve and enjoy! Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.

Serve in cucumber boats, or wrap in romaine lettuce, or collards or kale burrito style

* Rub the collards or kale with lemon juice and let it sit for a few minutes to soften. Remove the hard stem and place a few TBS of the pate in and roll it up burrito style.

If not what else do you suggest for someone who eats no animal flesh and mostly a raw diet.
Thanks so much

Hey Sunny,
Your vegan sunflower spread sounds super delicious. I have no experience with this but I think you should give it a try and let us know here how it worked. I Love especially the rolled kale variation:)

All the best
