Shred some cabbage and whip up a hearty soup in under 1 hr

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.
