How to make slow cooker unstuffed cabbage roll soup

Print this recipe
Cabbage rolls are delicious! Tender leaves of cabbage stuffed with rice and beef and cooked in tomatoes. In the recipe below, we break it all down and turn this beloved recipe into a soup. We also cut down on the carbs by using riced cauliflower instead of white rice.
I like to rice my cauliflower using a food processor,  but you can always use a grater, which works just as well. You can also add beef broth to this recipe instead of water, but I like to cut out all that extra sodium. All the flavors simmer together slowly and make a hearty, comforting soup that's simple and delicious.
