Red Cabbage Soup

This red cabbage soup recipe is sweet, sour, and super delicious. It's loaded with red cabbage, carrots, onions and some everyday pantry staples. It's a great hearty soup that's packed with flavor, nutrients and color! 


  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 carrots skinned and diced
  • 4 cups red cabbage shredded
  • 1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups chicken stock or vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins


  • Add onion, olive oil, and 1/4 tsp salt to a large soup pot and turn the heat to medium. Cook onions for about 10 minutes or until they’re beginning to caramelize.
  • Next, add carrots and cook for 3 minutes - scraping up any bits the onion has left.
  • Add shredded cabbage and another 1/4 tsp salt and cook for a few minutes or until it turns bright purple.
  • Add in diced tomatoes, chicken stock, brown sugar, vinegar, remaining salt, and raisins and turn the heat down to medium-low.
  • Simmer soup for 45 minutes. Season with more salt and pepper before serving if needed.
