Vegetarian country cabbage soup

Print this recipe
Traditional country cabbage soup is filled with ground beef, which mingles perfectly with tomatoes and cabbage. Below, however, is a healthier, no-meat option that uses smoked paprika to transform a meat-filled recipe into a delicious vegetarian version. Just 1 teaspoon adds a savory smokiness to the meal, and adding Great Northern beans instead of beef is a great way to fill you up.
If you have a spiralizer, you can make quick work of shredding down the cabbage, but a food processor with a shredder attachment (or a knife and some good old elbow grease) works just as well.

Roasting the cabbage adds an extra layer of flavor to this seemingly boring vegetable. The caramelization creates an amazing flavor that simmered or raw cabbage simply lacks.
